Location and history

Jordanów is located near the Skawa River valley between the mountains of Beskid Makowski and Beskid Żywiecki in southern Poland; the nearest major city is Rabka-Zdrój, 13 km to the southeast. Highway 28 (from Zator to Medyka on the Ukrainian border) passes through the city.
The city center itself is on a ridge in relation to the river, which is why the main road from the west side must be led via a couple of dramatic serpentine turns up to the center, which is at an altitude of 485 meters above sea level.

The city was founded in the latter half of the 16th century. by Wawrzyniec Spytek Jordan, who in 1564 received a letter of privilege from King Zygmunt August II regarding the founding of a city named Jordanów. In 1576 the first church – of wood – was erected. After the partition of Poland in 1772, much of southern Poland, including Jordanow, came under Austria-Hungary. In 1930, the city was electrified. During World War II, the city burned twice with a degree of destruction of approx. 72%.
