History

The province's name recalls the historic Lubusz Land (germ. Lebuser Land), although part of the voivodeship in fact belongs to the historic region of Silesia. For centuries the area on the Central Odra belonged to different counties. The influences of Polish, German and Czech culture mixed here.
