Location and history

Baranów Sandomierski is located in the lowlands just east of the Wisła River – in an agricultural area southwest of the Tarnobrzeg district. Administratively, the city is located in the northwest of the region (county) Podkarpacie.

The town is mentioned for the first time in 1135. The name Baranów is obviously due to the sheep breeding that was early widespread in this area (baran = ram). Baranów gained marketplace rights in 1354.
