Lubusz Voivodeship, or Lubusz Province is a voivodeship (province) in western Poland. It was created on January 1, 1999, out of the former Gorzów Wielkopolski and Zielona Góra Voivodeships. The province's name recalls the historic Lubusz Land, although parts of the voivodeship belong to the historic regions of Silesia, Greater Poland and Lusatia. Until 1945, it mainly formed the Neumark within the Prussian Province of Brandenburg. In 1967, it was equivalent mostly to Zielona Góra Voivodeship. Source: Wikipedia, Lubusz Voivodeship
