The municipality of Kije is situated in the eastern part of the Nida Valley spread between the Świętokrzyskie Mountains and Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska. The municipality of the total area of 99.26 square kilometres includes 20 villages. There are 6,955 ha of agricultural areas and 1,866 ha of forests.

The municipality’s western part, occupied by the Nida River Valley, is particularly attractive in terms of landscape and tourism. An inland delta of the Nida River is an excellent location for habitats of unique species of water plants and animals. Roads and railway lines create a particular web. There are two main national roads – north-south from Morawica to Pińczow and east-west from Jędrzejów to Chmielnik. The road communication network is also developed by numerous local and municipal roads. Additionally, there are three railway junctions: a regular railway line Kielce – Busko and Włoszczowice – Połaniec, a broad gauge line Hrubieszów – Katowice and a narrow gauge line Jędrzejów – Pińczów calling at Umianowice and currently used mostly by tourists. Forests, covering approximately 20% of the municipality’s area, have a great impact on the landscape and microclimate of the municipality.

It actively supports the organization of bank holidays and national festivals, such as the Constitution Day (May 3) or the Independence Day (November 11). The association cooperates with country women’s clubs in the organization of the Women’s Day and writers meetings.


Sports, tourism and culture

Student Folk Sports Clubs play an active role in the municipality. Among them there is a Student Sports Club in Włoszczowice, which is the only archery club in the municipality and the Pińczowki Poviat. The club was established 7 years ago and since then it has had great achievements, including a bronze medallist during Polish Championships and a participant in European Championships. The achievements show great potential of local children which should not be squandered. Archery makes young people take care of their physical fitness but also develop balance, responsibility and conscientiousness.International cooperation

Within the Comenius Program project called ‘The Voices from the Land’ realized since 20 to 27 October 2012 a junior school from Kije was the host of an unusual event – a visit of the project’s participants, students and teachers from partner countries of Spain, Turkey, Italy, Romania, Latvia and special guests from the USA. As part of the project our students visited Spain and Italy whereas other visits to Romania and Latvia have been planned for 2014.

We introduced our partners to Polish and local culture, traditions and history. Foreign students lived with Polish families, which was the best way to make new friendships.
