Biłgoraj XXI

Town on the Trail of Borderland Cultures

Who are we?

On 2 July 2005 the “Civic Entrepreneurship for Integration, Economic Development, Culture, Tourism and Sports and for the Preservation of Traditions of the Borderland Regions – Biłgoraj XXI” Foundation was established on the basis of a notarial deed.

The foundation was set up by a group of Biłgoraj residents and supporters interested in organising, supporting and promoting activities for the economic development of the town and region as well as increasing its tourism potential by, among others, referring to the traditions and customs of the borderland regions.
