The showcase of the city is the Old Town and the Royal Castle, which are the only reconstructed facilities in the list of UNESCO, honored in this way for a perfect reconstruction after the World War II. The boundary of the city is adjacent to the Kampinos Forest. It is the world's only national park located so close to the national capital.

The capital of the western part of the region is Płock. It is the oldest city of Mazovia, founded in the ninth century, recognized as the historical capital of Mazovia, and once it even played the role of the capital of Poland. Architectural monuments present at the Vistula escarpment, known as the Tumskie Hill, are the scenery for the annual air picnics, to which tourists from all over the country and from abroad come to see.

Radom, the most advancing city to the South, is popular with tourists because of the numerous cultural and sporting events, including the Air Show, which has its fans around the world. Radom preserved its early medieval structure which is unique in the country.
