The article provides a summary of 25 years of activity of the self-government of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, focusing on changes in the level of development at the regional and sub-regional levels, as well as trends in public services provided by local government institutions. The service sectors associated with the largest budget expenditures were selected for discussion, namely transportation (both in terms of maintenance and construction of provincial roads and regional public transport), healthcare and culture. The article also highlights changes in the level of technical and social infrastructure in the region, as well as the use of European Funds by local governments in Mazovia, as an important factor stimulating development. The conducted analyses confirm the thesis of Mazovia’s strengthening position as a leading centre of development in the country, both at the regional and sub-regional levels.
