"A Town I associate with business & transportation"
We passed through Rzeszow as I searched for my grandfather's village. We had driven south in a rental car, explored Czestochowa, Pajezno, and a few other little places. We headed for Rzeszow by train from Krakow and planned a short stay in Rzeszow while we explored yet another village nearby. When we finished our mission, we boarded the train from Rzeszow back to Warsaw. The thing about Rzeszow is that it is a very good connecting town when on route to north, east, south or west. We weren't there long enough to enjoy its ammenities, altho we did walk a fair distance to find a little internet location. At the time, there weren't many places to log on, but this little tiny building had several computers and it was very inexpensive to connect for a half hour or so.
"a bit about Rzeszow..."
from the city's web site...
"Rzeszów is an economic, scientific and cultural centre of southeastern Poland, the capital of the Podkarpackie Province and the seat of the Authorities of the Catholic Diocese. With an area of 97,6 Sq. Km. and population of about 173,000 it is one of the largest cities in this region. The location in the wide Wislok River valley, on the border of the Sandomierska Basin and the Carpathian Foothills, the two physical geographical units stand in contrast with each other, dividing the region into two parts differing in topography and nature. In the south, the horizon line of the city is marked by the Strzyzowsko-Dynowskie Plateau, divided by the winding valley of the Wislok River. In the north, a natural depression, called the Podkarpacie Trough then rises into the Kolbuszowski Tableland, which is largely covered with forests of the former Sandomierska Primeval Forest. The proximity to the southern and eastern frontiers makes Rzeszów an important communication centre. "
