Society of Polish Town Planners is a public interest advocate in the settlement and use of the Polish space. For almost ninety years, it has been uniting people of different professions and specialties in the name of joint actions aiming to make our cities and villages a community, which would fulfill both spiritual and material needs of man, rooted in the cultural heritage of the nation – community harmoniously fitting the natural environment and enriching the beauty of native landscape.
