Location and history

Słubice is located in western Poland, on the eastern bank of the river Odra, which over a long distance forms the border between Germany and Poland. On the west side of the river lies the substantially larger German city of Frankfurt an der Oder. There is a border crossing point in the city itself. From the city there is 5 km to the south to the highway no.2 (on the German side motorway no.12), connecting Warsaw and Poznań with Berlin.
As an independent city, Słubice has existed only since 1945, when the border was established at Odra. However, according to historical sources, there was a Slavic settlement called Śliwice in the early Middle Ages at this place. After 1250, the area came under Brandenburg and the dwelling eventually became a suburb – called Dammvorstadt – for the city of Frankfurt.
During World War II, approx. 30% of the urban structure destroyed.
After 1972, cooperation between Frankfurt and Słubice began in several areas, a cooperation that was deepened after 1993.
