The average (median) price per m2 on the primary market there was PLN 2,704. Similar prices were in force in the Pszczyna poviat – PLN 2767.

When it comes to cities with poviat rights in this region, the cheapest cities in this period were in Chorzów (PLN 2,775 per m2), Jastrzębie-Zdrój (PLN 2,868 per m2), Siemianowice Śląskie (PLN 2,931 per m2) and Bytom (PLN 2,998 per m2). m2).
Low prices were also observed in part of the Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, especially in the cheapest Ząbkowicki Poviat in Poland, and also in Wałbrzych, where the average price per m2 was PLN 3,091.

However, the Lębork district is an exception. The analysis of GUS data shows that as many as 6 out of the ten most expensive poviats are located by the sea.
Interestingly, the poviat of the capital city of Warsaw took only 4th place in terms of the highest prices. The median there was PLN 10,259 per m2. It was much more expensive in Sopot (PLN 16,703 per m2) and the Sławno poviat (PLN 14,818 per m2), which includes coastal towns such as Darłowo, Dąbki and Jarosławiec.
In third place, just before Warsaw, was the Tatra poviat including Zakopane and Białka Tatrzańska. The median prices in this poviat amounted to PLN 12,146 per m2.
