Introduction: Mazovia is the third richest region in Poland, as far as monuments are concerned, after Lower Silesia (7803) and Greater Poland (6631). There are 6402 objects entered in the register of immovable cultural monuments here. Mazovia is also the vastest voivodeship in Poland. That is why carefully planned conservation actions are necessary in this area. The role of the Voivodeship Heritage Protection Office includes issuing administrative decisions upon request of the interested parties. For this reason it is much more difficult to undertake independent conservation activities and to initiate new actions. Nevertheless, realising the importance of protecting the most endangered groups of monuments in Mazovia, some planned conservation activities were commenced. It was necessary to determine priorities in conservation activities, which ought to be gradually realised. Initiatives of the Heritage Protection Office could not be chaotic or concentrated solely on carrying out current tasks and issuing decisions to intervene. Planned activities encompassed the whole Mazovia region, and the work of the Mazovia Heritage Protection Office (MWKZ) could not focus mainly on cases concerning Warsaw. The article describes the directions of the most important projects in this field.
