St. Martin's Church in Kłobuck
The town of Kłobuck is located in the northern part of Upper Silesia, 16 km northwest of the larger city of Częstochowa. Kłobuck is a mixed urban and rural municipality and is also a city center in the district of the same name.
The town's history goes back to the early Middle Ages. It is not known for certain when Kłobuck was granted commercial property rights, but it is probably around 1339. In 1454 Jan Długosz founded a monastery in Kłobuck. A great fire in 1469 destroyed large parts of the city. After the Swedish attacks on Poland, the city fell into disrepair. In 1689 it burned down almost completely. In 1870, Kłobuck lost his rights as a market town, but regained those rights in 1917. Only after World War II did more substantial economic growth occur in the city.
