Location and history

Grudziądz is located on the right bank of the Wisła River in northern Poland, 120 km south of the Baltic Sea at Gdańsk. The international highway E75 from Gdynia to Cieszyn passes through the city, as well as good road connections to other parts of the country. The junction with the E75 highway leads across the river on a bridge just south of the old town.

In 1064, the fortified settlement at the site is mentioned for the first time in the sources. In 1231 the town was conquered by the Crusaders, who subsequently built a castle here. However, this castle was finally destroyed in 1945. In 1291, Grudziądz was granted commercial property rights; in the documents from that time the town's name appeared in various forms: Grudenc, Grudencz, Graudentum and others. In 1466, the city was awarded Poland. After Poland's 1st division in 1772, the city came under Prussia. In 1920 Grudziądz returned to Poland.
