Summary/Abstract: Two attributes are important in the location of the Uniejów town and commune: its lying in the centre of the country (ca. 48 km west of the geometric centre of Poland) and in the borderland in different physicogeographical divisions. Uniejów is situated in the southern part of the Koło Basin near the boundaries with Łask Plateau, Sieradz Basin and Turek Plateau. In the past, the factor most important for the development of Uniejów was its location in the placewhere the Warta valley and Warsaw–Berlin valley connected because major routes running along these valleys facilitated transport and settlement. Present development of the town is connected with geothermal waters found in Lower Cretaceous sediments within Lodz Basin. The first hydrogeological well was drilled in Uniejów in 1978. This article presents the location of Uniejów within the physicogeographical, geological, geomorphological, and botanical units and on the map of Poland’s climatic conditions.
