The authority of the Self-government of Lębork County comprises five communes: two towns, namely Lębork and Łeba, and three rural communes, i.e. Cewice, Nowa Wieś Lęborska and Wicko. The area of 707 square kilometres is populated by 64 thousand residents. 

Lębork County is deeply rooted in the history of Lębork District, which, in the past, was situated in the borderland between countries often in conflict; between the countries often representing different cultures. The remnants of this turbulent past are still visible at present in form of interesting historic buildings dating from the 14th century when Lębork was established and the cultural diversity reflecting customs and traditions of national and ethnic minorities, especially the Kashubians,  who have been living here for centuries.

Regaining of full independence by Poland in 1989 and ensuing revival of real local self-governments triggered off effective cooperation between numerous entities in spiritual, cultural and recreational fields. The cooperation resulted in regularly organised events of more than local importance such as Lębork St James Days, Codfish Festival or Sport and Ecology Marathon. A unique phenomenon is the development of mass pilgrimages made by individuals or groups to pilgrimage sites like Sianowo, Wejherowo or Częstochowa. More and more pilgrims are attracted by Lębork St James Diocese Sanctuary founded in 2010.

The geographical situation of Lębork County favours brisk tourism. Access to the sea, beautiful lakes, large wooded areas, numerous nature reserves and protected areas make this county one of the most picturesque regions of Pomorskie Voivodeship. There are wide sandy beaches to stroll along. The Słowiński National Park invites for a walk along shifting sand dunes. There, you can still see wild, quiet spots untouched by human activity and admire the abundance of fauna and flora as well as landscapes of great scenic beauty.

Tourist accommodation options, catering establishments and cultural and recreational offering are systematically developed. All of the above makes Lębork County one of the most frequently visited regions of  Pomorskie Voivodeship.
