Location and history

Pyrzyce is located in northern Poland, southeast of Szczecin.

The anonymous author – called Geographus Bavarus – of a medieval writing on tribes in central and eastern Europe, mentions the Prissani tribe (perhaps: Pyrzyczanie). However, this connection between the Prissani tribe and the later locality of Pyrzyce is uncertain. Scripture is thought to have originated around 850. It is known that the inhabitants of Pyrzyce became Christian in 1124.
A new city was built between (about) 1230 and 1240. Later in the 13th century. the city was surrounded by a rampart, a moat and a city wall with access gates.
In 1263, the city gained rights as a market town.
