Location and history

Dębica is located in Podkarpacie County on the river Wisłoka, a tributary to Wisła.
The first historical document mentioning a settlement on the site dates from 1293. The town was granted commercial property rights in 1358 by permission of King Kazimierz the Great.
From 1772 the city was under Austrian rule.
Between 1936 and 1939 a car tire factory emerged. Therefore, the city is known throughout Poland as well as in other countries, with all the tires bearing the name of the company, which is also the name of the city: Dębica . From 1995, the company behind the factory is part of the Goodyear group.
After the German occupation in World War II, 40% of Dębica was destroyed. In 1999, Dębica became a district town in the newly created Podkarpacie County.
Today, Dębica is one of the most important industrial centers in southeastern Poland.

The composer Krzysztof Penderecki was born in Dębica in 1933.
