Postomino [ pɔstɔ'minɔ ] (German Pustamin ) is a village in the Polish West Pomeranian Voivodeship . It is the eponymous place and seat of the rural community (gmina wiejska) Postomino in the Powiat Sławieński .

Geographical location

Postomino is located in Western Pomerania , about 15 kilometers north of Sławno (Schlawe) on Wojewodschaftsstraße 203 and roughly in the middle of the triangle between Darłowo (Rügenwalde) - Ustka (Stolpmünde) - Sławno .

Postomino village (Pustamin)


Pustamin north of Schlawe , north of the Wipper and northeast of Rügenwalde on the Baltic Sea on a map from 1794.

Postomino (formerly Pustamyn and Wendisch-Pustamin ) is an old estate and farming village. It is of Wendish origin, which is also indicated by the ending 'min' of the place name. It was first mentioned in a document in 1301. Soon afterwards, the place became property of the von Below family - until 1792. After that, the place belonged to changing owners, until in 1908 the name von Below reappeared.

Pustamin was from 1818 to 1945 in the district of Schlawe i. Pom. directly on the border with the Stolp district at the intersection of the Rügenwalde (now Polish: Darłowo) - Stolp (Słupsk) and Stolpmünde (Ustka) - Schlawe (Sławno) roads . The place was a train station on the Schlawe – Stolpmünde railway line .

Until 1945 Pustamin formed its own district and registry office and belonged to the district court district of Schlawe in the administrative district of Köslin (Koszalin) . Soon after the occupation by Soviet troops in March 1945, Western Pomerania was placed under Polish administration. Immigration from Poland began and the German natives were pushed out of their homesteads and homes. The German population was expelled from Pustamin in the following period due to the so-called Bierut decrees .

Today Postomino is part of the rural community of the same name.

Postomino, Church, 2004

Protestant church

Until 1945, the parish of Pustamin - with the chapel parish Pennekow , from 1928 also co-administration of the parish Marsow - belonged to the parish of Rügenwalde of the church province of Pomerania in the Protestant church of the Old Prussian Union . Until 1914 it was assigned to the Stolp-Stadt parish. The church patronage was exercised by the landowners in Pustamin and the Seehof estate near Pennekow.

In 1817 Pennekow was transferred to the area of ​​responsibility of the parish Mützenow (Możdżanowo) . There it came to a conflict because of the appearance of the rationalist pastor Tischmeyer, on whose opposing side the Pennekow church patron Heinrich von Below stood. A neo-Pietist awakening movement ("Belowsche Movement") ignited his person . Only in 1863 were Pustamin and Pennekow reunited.

In 1940 the Pustamin parish had 1,525 parishioners, 800 of whom lived in Pennekow (plus 1,000 parishioners in Marsow). The church registers have been missing since 1945, after a large part was destroyed in the fire of the rectory in 1879.

Today Postomino belongs to the Parish Słupsk (Stolp) of the Evangelical-Augsburg Church in Poland .

Roman Catholic Church

Due to the population exchange after 1945, the denomination of the Polish population who have lived in the place since then is predominantly Roman Catholic . The parish was initially Słupsk (Stolp) . The parish of St. Florian in Postomino has existed since 1973. It belongs to the deanery Ustka (Stolpmünde) in the diocese of Köslin-Kolberg of the Catholic Church in Poland . The parish has two branch churches, Marszewo (Marsow) and Pieńkowo (Pennekow) .

Parish church

The founding date of the church is in the dark. In 1783 it was re-inaugurated after a thorough restoration. It still has valuable carvings on the altar and baptismal font. As St. Florian Church, it is now a place of worship of the Polish Roman Catholic Church. After 1945 the Protestant church was expropriated to the Catholic Church, which rededicated it in 1946 and gave it the name St. Florian.


The first news came of a school in Pustamin in 1751. By 1850 the school was too small and a second class had to be set up in view of the increasing number of pupils.

The building, which was used as a school building until 1945, was built in 1861/62. It was opposite the manor inspector's house and had separate apartments for two families of teachers. The last German teacher was Ernst Griep .
