Pomorskie is one of Poland's 16 voivodships and one of three located on the Baltic Sea. In the north it neighbours with Nordic countries, in the east with Kaliningrad Oblast of the Russian Federation. In Poland's administration system the voivodship borders with other Polish voivodships: Zachodniopomorskie, Wielkopolskie, Kujawsko-Pomorskie and Warmińsko-Mazurskie.
The voivodship area is 18 300 km2, which represents 5.9% of Poland's area.
In the 42 towns in the region live almost 68% of the Pomeranian population. The undisputed centre of the region and also of northern Poland is the Tri-City conurbation of Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia. The three towns have naturally split their functions; the main business operations are concentrated in Gdańsk and Gdynia. Gdańsk is the capital city of the region and also its biggest town with 461,000 inhabitants. Gdynia is a symbol of local government success in Poland, dynamic economic development and innovation.
A characteristic of the region is the high population density in and around the Tri-City conurbation (Gdańsk-Sopot-Gdynia), accounting for nearly 2/3 of industrial production.
