Geographical location

Grybów is located in the south of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship, about 30 kilometers north of Poland's state border with Slovakia . The city is located in the Western Carpathians in the Beskid Sądecki (Sandezer Beskids) .



Today's Grybów goes back to the layout of the place Grynberk , Grymberk or Tymberch (the Middle High German name would be Grünberg today ) in 1340. In 1346 it was mentioned once as Grewstat . The current Polonized name Grybowa appeared as Grebow in 1365 or 1388 .

The city should serve, among other things, to secure the southern border of Poland. Since the houses were made of wood, large parts of the village were victims of fires several times; But the city was also destroyed several times by the effects of war, such as during the Northern Wars . After Poland was embroiled in the chaos of war by the Confederation of Bar in 1786 , Austria occupied parts of the Carpathians in 1770, including Grybów. Thus, the city had become part of Austria even before the First Partition of Poland . In 1876 the place was connected to the rail network.

After the First World War , Grybów became part of the re-established Poland. On 6./7. In September 1939 the city was taken by the Wehrmacht during the attack on Poland . At the end of World War II , the city was captured by the Red Army during the Western Carpathian Operation . To defend the city, the German Wehrmacht destroyed the bridge and the viaduct. At the end of the war, about two thirds of the city was destroyed; it again became part of Poland.
