One of Poland’s smallest voivodships, the voivodship of Bielsko- Biała has some 1 250 monuments of architecture and town-planning, ca 120 sets of movable monuments and about 180 other objects of historical value. The Voivodship Office for Conservation of Historical Monuments is staffed by three persons. According to plans, an office for the research on, and documentation of, historical monuments will have been set up by 1980, however marked the difficulties involved, one of them being the non-inviting salaries. The Voivodship Conservator’s Office is also faced with considerable difficulties in procurring adequate premises, above all, those wanted for documentation purposes and also with those caused by limited possibilities o f the necessary frequent journeys to the respective localities. Another problem are the proceedings of building enterprises which, not infrequently, carry out modernization or repair work within historical groupings without having previously obtained the Voivodship Conservator’s permission in this respect.
