The Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship (also known as Kuyavian-Pomeranian Province, or by its Polish name of województwo kujawsko-pomorskie [vɔjɛˈvut​͡stfɔ kuˈjafskɔ pɔˈmɔrskʲɛ] or simply Kujawsko-Pomorskie) is one of the 16 voivodeships (provinces) into which Poland is now divided. It is situated in mid-northern Poland, on the boundary between the two historic regions from which it takes its name: Kuyavia (Polish: Kujawy) and Pomerania (Polish: Pomorze). Its two chief cities, serving as the province's joint capitals, are Bydgoszcz and Toruń.

It is the successor of the former Pomeranian Voivodeship (1919–1939), which had Toruń as its capital.

History

The Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship was created on 1 January 1999, as a result of the Polish local government reforms adopted in 1998. It consisted of territory from the former Bydgoszcz, Toruń and Włocławek Voivodeships.

The area now known as Kuyavia-Pomerania was previously divided between the region of Kuyavia and the Polish fiefdom of Royal Prussia. Of the two principal cities of today's Kuyavian-Pomeranian voivodeship, one (Bydgoszcz) was historically located in Kuyavia, whilst the other (Toruń) was an important town of Royal Prussia.
