... because we have a good location on the map

Swarzędz is situated several kilometers East of Poznań, by National Road 92 and the Berlin-Warszawa-Moscow railway line. National Road 5 and the railway line linking southern Poland with Gdańsk run through our commune. The new A2 motorway runs nearby Swarzędz. In Kobylnica we also have a large Aeroklub Poznański airport, and Ławica international airport in Poznań located in the vicinity. The people of Swarzędz value their well developed city transportation network and local connections with Poznań, which ensure full comfort for people commuting between the two towns.

... because Swarzędz is a friendly commune

The town of Swarzędz covers the area of 8.24 km2, and the entire commune including 20 villages - 93 km2. We have over 40 thousand inhabitants, majority of whom - over 29 thousand - live in Swarzędz. Our students have more than ten schools at their disposal. They may get general or vocational high school education in public and private schools. We are satisfied with a well developed health care system with Emergency Medical Service post, several outpatient clinics, tens of private practices of doctors of various specialties, and an internationally recognized Hair Clinic.

... because Swarzędz is more than just furniture

Several thousand business entities are active in our commune, among them tens of companies with foreign capital. Both large companies such as Volkswagen, British Petroleum, Deceuninck, Vox, Poz-Bruk, Panopa Logistik, Stena Złomet, and hundreds of small- and medium-size businesses, mainly in the sector of commerce and, traditionally for Swarzędz, carpentry and upholstery, have chosen Swarzędz as a good place to run their business. Pay attention to a large chair placed on the pavement along Wrzesińska street. There is a pavilion in which furniture offered by craftsmen associated in a Swarzędz Trade of Carpenters has been collected. Services and trade are growing fast. A large and modern ETC shopping mall and Leroy Merlin construction market are located by Road 2. Divisions and branches of recognized banks have chosen Swarzędz as their seat. We have several good hotels, restaurants, bars and cafés. In the southern part of Swarzędz, along Road 2 and the railway line we have established a large industrial zone which is still growing. We are planning to establish another one, along Poznań-Gniezno Road 5 , in the neighborhood of Uzarzewo village. Construction of houses, blocks of apartments and detached houses, individually and in organized manner by a housing cooperative, developers and social construction societies, is our strength.

... because we value more than just work - in Swarzędz there are many ways to rest. You are invited to visit:
