Location and history

Jasło is located in southeastern Poland, in the western part of the Podkarpacie region. The town is located where the river Wisłoka (an eastern tributary to Wisła) during its south-northward course receives inflows from the rivers Jasiółka and Ropa.
The term Jasiel for a settlement in this place is first encountered in the written sources during the year 1185. The town was granted market town rights in 1365, issued by King Kazimierz Wielki during a stay in Sanok. From being the property of the Cistercian Order in 1368, the city became royal property. Especially in the 16th century. the city developed strongly, thanks to the convenient location of the so-called “Hungarian trade route”. During the Polish division, Jasło was under Austrian rule and belonged to the province of Galicia. During the German occupation in World War II, a strong resistance movement appeared in the city. By the end of the war, Jasło was totally destroyed. In September 1944, as the Russian forces approached the area, all civilians were forced out of the city, after which the Germans robbed all that had any value in the city, and subsequently blasted virtually every building in the air. This devastating action, apparently of no strategic importance, lasted from October to December 1944. In January 1945, Russian forces invaded the ruins of Jasło. After the war, there were plans to relocate the city to another location, but residents decided to undertake a reconstruction.
