Village
A VILLAGE is a clustered human settlement or community , larger than a hamlet but smaller than a town , with a population ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand. Though often located in rural areas , the term urban village is also applied to certain urban neighborhoods. Villages are normally permanent, with fixed dwellings ; however, transient villages can occur. Further, the dwellings of a village are fairly close to one another, not scattered broadly over the landscape, as a dispersed settlement . In the past, villages were a usual form of community for societies that practice subsistence agriculture , and also for some non-agricultural societies. In Great Britain, a hamlet earned the right to be called a village when it built a church. In many cultures, towns and cities were few, with only a small proportion of the population living in them

Voivodeships Of Poland
A WOJEWóDZTWO ( ; plural: województwa) is the highest-level administrative subdivision of Poland, corresponding to a "province " in many other countries. The term "województwo" has been in use since the 14th century, and is commonly translated in English as "PROVINCE ". The word "województwo" is also rendered as "VOIVODESHIP " (/ˈvɔɪvoʊdʃɪp/ ) or a variant spelling. The Polish local government reforms
Polish local government reforms
adopted in 1998, which went into effect on 1 January 1999, created sixteen new voivodeships.

Today's voivodeships are mostly named after historical and geographical regions, while those prior to 1998 generally took their names from the cities on which they were centered

Powiat
A POWIAT (pronounced ; Polish plural: powiaty) is the second-level unit of local government and administration in Poland
Poland
, equivalent to a county , district or prefecture (LAU-1 , formerly NUTS-4 ) in other countries. The term "powiat" is most often translated into English as "county". A powiat is part of a larger unit, the voivodeship (Polish województwo) or province . A powiat is usually subdivided into gmina s (in English, often referred to as "communes " or "municipalities "). Major towns and cities, however, function as separate counties in their own right, without subdivision into gminas. They are termed "city counties" (powiaty grodzkie or, more formally, miasta na prawach powiatu) and have roughly the same status as former county boroughs in the UK . The other type of powiats are termed "land counties" (powiaty ziemskie). As of 2008, there were 379 powiat-level entities: 314 land counties, and 65 city counties
