Location and history

Moryń is located in the southwestern part of West Pomeranian County in Gryfino district, respectively. 22 and 40 km from two border crossings to Germany: Osinów Dolny and Kostrzyn.

The place where the city is located was already inhabited in the older Stone Age. For approx. A thousand years ago there was a Slavic settlement whose inhabitants were in constant conflict with the Germanic people to the west. In the 10th year. joined the area together with the rest of Pomerania in the Polish state. In the 13th year. however, the city and area were detached from Poland for a period of 7 centuries. The town of Moryń was first mentioned in 1265. At the beginning of the 14th century. got the city marketplace rights. The fact that the city at that time had fortifications, a city court and the right to strike its own coin testifies to a significant significance at the time. Since then, the city has been destroyed several times during acts of war. In the interwar period, Moryń developed into a popular resort because of the beautiful old architecture of the city and its location on the lake. After World War II – and the city's return to Poland – destroyed parts of the city were rebuilt, and Polish scientists undertook historical and archaeological investigations into the city's past.
