  1. Warmia

    Warmia (Polish: Warmia, Latin: Varmia, German: Ermland, Old Prussian: Wārmi, Lithuanian: Varmė) is a historical region in northern Poland. It is now the core of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. It has about 4,500 km2 and 350,000 inhabitants. Its biggest city is Olsztyn (Allenstein), and the historical capital is Lidzbark Warmiński (Heilsberg); in the past the largest town was Braniewo (Braunsberg). Important landmarks include the Cathedral Hill in Frombork (Frauenburg), where Nicolaus Copernicus elaborated the heliocentric theory, the castles of the Warmian bishops in Olsztyn, Lidzbark Warmiński and Reszel (Rößel), and sanctuary in Gietrzwałd (Dietrichswalde), a site of Marian apparitions and miracles. It is an area of many lakes and lies at the upper Łyna river and on the right bank of Pasłęka, stretching in the northwest to the Vistula Bay. Warmia has a number of architectural monuments ranging from Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque to Classicism, Historicism and Art Nouveau. Warmia is part of the historical region of Prussia and was inhabited by the Old Prussians, and later on was populated mainly by Germans and Poles. Warmia has traditionally strong connections with Masuria, but it remained Catholic and belonged to Poland between 1454/1466 and 1772, whereas Masuria became part of the Duchy of Prussia and became predominantly Protestant. Warmia has been under the dominion of various states over the course of its history, most notably the Old Prussians, the Teutonic Knights, the Kingdom of Poland and the Kingdom of Prussia. The history of the region is closely connected to that of the Archbishopric of Warmia (formerly, Duchy of Warmia). The region is associated with the Prussian tribe, the Warmians, who settled in an approximate area. According to folk etymology, Warmia is named after the legendary Prussian chief Warmo, and Ermland derives from his widow Erma.
