Geographical location

Łącko is a farming village on the south bank of the Jezioro Wicko ( Vietzker See ), four kilometers from the Baltic Sea in Western Pomerania . The place lies on a moraine hill , about ten meters above sea level, and is bordered in the east by the meadow valley of the Klasztorna river ( Klosterbach ).

The village can be reached via a 1.5 kilometer cul-de-sac that connects it with Korlino ( Körlin ) on the Naćmierz ( Natzmershagen ) - Królewo ( Krolow ) road. The nearest train station is Darłowo ( Rügenwalde ). The Schlawe – Stolpmünde railway line, which existed until 1945, with the nearest railway station Pustamin, is no longer in operation.


Łącko, also known as Lanzke in the past , is located on very old settlement grounds , as is proven by finds from early and historical times. The oldest news from the place dates back to November 29, 1394, when Duchess Adelheid documented the founding of the Carthusian monastery Marienkron on the field of Körlin (today in Polish: Korlino) near Lanzig. However, the monastery could not last long. In 1406 it was first relocated to Schlawe , in 1407 near Rügenwalde and finally abandoned after the Reformation . The 'Klosterbach' which flows into Lake Vietzker is reminiscent of the monastery.

Around 1480 the legend tells of Hans Lange from Lanzig, who is said to have helped Duke Bogislaw X in his youth.

On February 18, 1533, Duke Barnim XI prohibited the markets in Lanzig on the day of the Annunciation (March 25) and the Assumption of the Virgin (August 15) and moved them to Rügenwalde (Darłowo) on Corpus Christi days .

At the beginning of the 17th century, eleven farmers, a farm, three country cottages , a blacksmith and two street cottages were named in Lanzig . The place belonged to the Rügenwalder office , and the farmers were obliged to serve the ducal farm in Neuenhagen (Jezierzany). In 1784 the village had a preacher, a sexton, a free school, 13 farms, three country cottages, four street cottages , three bidders , a preacher's widow's house, a blacksmith shop and a shepherd's cottage. To the village in the district of Schlawe i. Pom. was, until 1945 belonged the residential areas Lanziger Ländchen (Polish: Łężek), Mühlenbruch (Mulisko) and New Lanzig (Łęskie).

On March 8, 1945, Soviet troops occupied the village. Like all of Western Pomerania, the place was placed under Polish administration. The immigration of Poles and Ukrainians began, mainly from areas east of the Curzon Line . On November 24, 1945, the German residents were expelled . The place was given the Polish name Łącko and today belongs to the Gmina Postomino in the Powiat Sławieński .

Local division until 1945

Before 1945 there were three localities in the municipality of Lanzig:

  1. Lanziger Ländchen (Polish: Łężek), a scattered settlement of six farmsteads, 2.5 kilometers south of Lanzig, between Scheddin and Körlin ,
  2. Mühlenbruch (Mulisko), homestead on Bülsbach on the road to Jershöft, 2 kilometers southwest of Lanzig, formerly a mill,
  3. Neu Lanzig (Łęskie), settlement of five farmsteads at the intersection of Natzmershagen - Körlin , 2 kilometers southwest of Lanzig.



Until 1945 almost all of Lanzig's residents belonged to the Protestant church. The village was the pastor for the parish of Lanzig, in which the places Lanzig, Körlin , Krolow (Królewo), Krolowstrand (Królewice, no longer existent), Natzmershagen (Naćmierz), Neuenhagen Amt (Jezierzany), Scheddin (Wszedzień), Vietzke ( Wicko, no longer existent) and Vietzkerstrand (Wicko Morskie) belonged.

Historically connected with Lanzig is a synod that Pastor Johann Georg Friedrich Erdt established. It linked all the neighboring parishes, but only existed from 1817 to 1826.

In 1939 the parish of Lanzig had a total of 2,706 parishioners. It was in the parish of Rügenwalde in the church province of Pomerania of the Protestant Church of the Old Prussian Union .

Today the place Łącko belongs to the evangelical parish Koszalin ( Köslin ) in the diocese of Pomerania-Greater Poland of the Polish Evangelical-Augsburg Church . On the part of the Catholic Church in Poland , Łącko is today the seat of a parish, which also includes the branch churches Jarosławiec (Jershöft) and Rusinowo ( Rützenhagen ). The Deanery Ustka ( Stolpmünde ) in the Diocese of Köslin-Kolberg is responsible .

Parish church

The village church Łącko is a three-aisled hall church and probably dates from the 15th century. It was heavily devastated in the occupation days of 1945, whereby a large part of the interior could be saved or restored.


One of the oldest Pomeranian village schools stood in Lanzig. Pastor Christian Bielang set up a private school in his home as early as 1600.

The school building was built in 1854. The single-class elementary school had thirty children between 1920 and 1945.
