TERYT database implementation for Django

Project description

django-teryt is a Django app that implements TERYT database. TERYT (Polish: “Krajowy Rejestr Urzędowy Podziału Terytorialnego Kraju”, English: “National Official Register of Territorial Division of the Country”) is a register maintained by Polish Central Statistical Office (Polish: Główny Urząd Statystyczny; GUS). Among other things it contains:

  • identifiers and names of units of territorial division,
  • identifiers and names of localities,
  • identifiers and names of streets

This app parses XML files from GUS and it imports them to the database. It is meant to be used as a part of a larger system.


The full documentation is at


Install django-teryt:

pip install django-teryt

If you are using Django 1.6 or lower you have to install South:

pip install 'south>=1.0'

Add teryt to INSTALLED_APPS in your and run:

./ migrate teryt

Then download TERYT data from GUS website, unpack it and then import it:

./ teryt_parse /path/to/WMRODZ.xml /path/to/TERC.xml /path/to/SIMC.xml /path/to/ULIC.xml


  • It can import all data from all TERYT files
  • It deals with updates (just run ./ teryt_parse –update TERC.xml)
  • It keeps flag (aktywny) telling you if some record is still present in TERYT (there are some minor changes in territorial division from time to time)
