List Of Postal Codes In Poland
The Postal codes in Poland consists of 5 numbers in the following format xy-zzz.
First digit in the postal code represents the postal district, second digit major geographical subdivision of this district, and the three digits after dash: the post office, or in case of large cities: particular street, part of the street or even separate address (in the last case code is in the form of xy-9zz). Thus the postal code 70-952 means:
- 7 - postal district of Szczecin,
- 0 - subdivision of that district, in this case the Western Part of Szczecin,
- 9 - denotes special code, and
- 52 - Office of the District Attorney (Prokuratura Okręgowa).
Similarly, the code for 70-470 denotes the odd numbers from 1 to 27 in the Wojska Polskiego Street in Szczecin, and 34-434 is a code for whole town of Dębno near Nowy Targ (3 - postal district of Kraków, 4 - subdivision of that district, 434 the town of Dębno - strictly speaking the post office in Dębno).
Postal districts and their subdivisions are not related to the administrative division of Poland.
