Zygmunt Gloger in his monumental book Historical Geography of the Lands of Old Poland gives a detailed description of Sandomierz Voivodeship:

“Duke Boleslaw Krzywousty, before his death in 1138, divided Poland between his four sons, giving Henryk the Land of Sandomierz together with the Land of Lublin The Duchy of Sandomierz was thus created

During the reign of Wladyslaw Lokietek, the duchy was turned into a large voivodeship In ca 1471, the Land of Lublin was separated from it The area of Sandomierz Voivodeship was 467 square miles, with 374 Roman Catholic parishes, 100 towns, and 2,586 villages In 1397 left bank part of the province was divided into three counties – Sandomierz, Radom and Checiny In the early 16th century the voivodeship had 9 counties: Sandomierz, Wislica, Checiny, Opoczno, Radom, Szydlow, Stezyca, Pilzno and Tarnów By late 16th century, Tarnow county was annexed by Pilzno county, while Szydlow county was divided between Wislica and Sandomierz

Sandomierz Voivodeship had nine senators: the voivode and the castellan of Sandomierz, and castellans of Wislica, Radom, Zawichost, Żarnów, Malogoszcz, Polaniec and Czchow The voivodeship had several starostas, who resided in such towns, as Sandomierz, Radom, Checiny, Opoczno, Nowy Korczyn, Stezyca, Wislica, Pilzno, Stopnica, Solec nad Wisla, Zawichost, Szydlow, Przedborz, Ropczyce, Ryczywol, Radoszyce, Ryki, Zwolen, Gołąb and others Local sejmiks took place at Opatow, at which seven deputies to the Sejm were elected, as well as two deputies to the Lesser Poland Tribunal in Lublin

Soil in northern part of the voivodeship was sandy, while in its center and south it was very rich In the area of Opatow, famous wheat was produced, called sandomierka or opatowka There also were large forests, as well as deposits of marble, copper, iron and lime Among oldest urban centers of Sandomierz Voivodeship were Sandomierz, Wislica, Nowy Korczyn, Zawichost, Radom Main castles were at Chrobrze, Osiek, Ilza, Checiny, Janowiec nad Wisla Most important monasteries were at Lysa Gora, Sieciechow, Opatow, Wachock and Koprzywnica"

1939

Main article: Sandomierz Voivodeship 1939

Sandomierz Voivodeship was also a proposed voivodeship of Second Polish Republic, which never was created because of the Nazi and Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939 The idea of creation of this unit was the brainchild of Minister of Industry and Trade Eugeniusz Kwiatkowski, and it was directly linked with creation of one of the biggest economic projects of interbellum Poland, Central Industrial Region It was to cover south-central Poland, and most probably, it was to be created in late 1939 Its projected size was 24500 square kilometers, and it was to incorporate 20 or 21 powiats
