Subcarpathian Voivodship

The Subcarpathian Voivodship (in Polish województwo podkarpackie) is an administrative and local government region or voivodship of south-eastern Poland.

It was created on 1 January 1999 out of the former Rzeszow, Przemysl, Krosno and parts of Tarnow and Tarnobrzeg voivodships as a result of Local Government Reogranization Act of 1998. The voivodship's name recalls the region's geographical location by the Carpathian Mountains.
