A prowincja (plural: prowincje), or Region, was the largest territorial subdivision in medieval and Renaissance-era Poland, and later in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Alhough larger than a province (województwo), it was less important in terms of offices and power. In most respects, a prowincja was merely a titular unit of administration; the real power lay with the province (województwa)—and, to a lesser extent, with ziemias.

The term "prowincja" has not been used to denote any part of independent Poland since the Third Partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (1795)—unlike "ziemia," which has been used for certain geographical areas. Since 1795, the Polish term "prowincja" has been used only for certain foreign-imposed units of administration within territories of the old Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
