The Kujawsko Pomorskie region has represented Poland in the European Federation of Saint James Way since 2017.
A region full of heritage and History that has its capital in Torun, where the Church of Santiago receives pilgrims as they make their way along the Polish Way since medieval times.
The Roads through Poland
There are several routes of Santiago that cross Poland, from Lesser Poland Way of St. James, passing through St. Jakub – Via Regia, Lower Silesian Way of St. James, Saint Lubuska Road James, Wielkopolska Way of St. James and the Polish Road, also known as Camino Polaco, which passes through the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship.
The Polish Way in the Kuyavia-Pomeranian Voivodeship was created thanks to the cooperation and financial support of local governments: the City of Toruń, the Municipal Office in Brodnica and the Office of the Kurzętnik Commune. A trail in the field has been marked by a group of trail markers from the PTTK Marian Sydow Municipal Department in Toruń.
The Polish Way (Camino Polaco) connects the places that pilgrims have visited since the Middle Ages, making pilgrimages to Compostela. It is a path of almost 250 kilometers full of monuments, sacred memories and beautiful landscapes. Its Kuyavian-Pomeranian fragment runs among others through: Brodnica, Szafarnia, Golub-Dobrzyń, Ciechocin, Toruń, Kruszwica.
