District location

Białołęka is a district of Poland’s capital city, Warsaw. It is situated on the right side of the Vistula river, in the northeastern part of the city. With a territory of 73,04 km2, it is located at the outlet of the roads to Białystok, Gdańsk, Ostrołęka, Suwałki and the Zegrzyński Reservoir.

Most people live in the large housing estates of Tarchomin and Nowodwory, with tower-block housing. The oldest parts of Białołęka, Dąbrówka Szlachecka, Płudy, Choszczówka and Białołęka Dworska, are residential areas with single-family houses. Many artists have decided to live there.

Other areas in the district include: Tomaszew, Szamocin, Kobiałka, Ruskowy Bród, Olesin, Augustówek, Mańki - Wojdy, Augustów, Brzeziny, Kąty Grodziskie, Grodzisk, Białołęka, Aleksandrów i Lewandów. These are new parts of Białołęka, located in industrial areas. Many investors are currently concentrating on that part of the district and are planning to develop its housing and service sector buildings.

Białołęka has many water resources, including the Zerański and Henrykowski Channels, the Długa River, and Jabłonna Stream. Water purity is guaranteed by mechanical-biological sewage treatment - Czajka.

A large part of Białołęka is environmentally protected; areas of the middle Vistula Valley are part of a special bird protection area - Nature 2000.
