The bucolic nature and beautiful landscapes combined with the existing tourist resorts make the Opawskie Mountains a highly attractive holiday area. Flat highlands constitute a large part of the county. Its mild climate, good quality loess soil and the desirable level of forest density allow agricultural development. The region is characterised by an average level of industrialisation (poorly developed industrial production concentrated in cities and well-developed agri-food production.)
Conveniently located along the major routes, the place links the Silesian Region and the "Sudety Route" with other parts of the Sudety Mountains and the northern part of the Czech Republic and Moravia. Cross-border location creates ideal opportunities for economic, touristic and cultural exchange.
