Old Polish Industrial Zone

Hello! My name’s Tom. Wikipedia says that thanks to the efforts by Stanisław Staszic Kielce became the centre of the newly-established Old-Polish Industrial Zone (Staropolski Okręg Przemysłowy). The town grew quickly as new mines, quarries and factories were constructed. In 1816 the first Polish technical university was founded in Kielce. However, after Staszic’s death the Industrial Zone declined and in 1826 the school was moved to Warsaw and became the Warsaw University of Technology.
