"One of the youngest towns in Poland..." Stalowa Wola by kolabor

Stalowa Wola Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 7 photos

From ironworks to a town in 8 years

The place exists because of an industry plan for Poland that was created by Eugeniusz Kwiatkowski in 1937. That's when the ironworks were build here. It was supposed to produce equipment for the Polish military which was weak compared to the more and more powerful German army. But the institution was just getting started when the WW2 began in 1939. The ironworks, just as the new-grown worker district was since then controlled by the Germans. In 1944 the place was liberated and in 1945 was awarded "town wrights". Now with almost 70,000 habitants Stalowa Wola is one of the biggest towns in the region (which, as visible, doestn't have too many of those). I guess I would be the only person writing about it here on VT, but there are a few places worth a look. Few though...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:it's my home town :)
  • Cons:not too many interesting things too see.
  • In a nutshell:A bit more than blocks. Less than historical.

    Hello! The town museum looks interesting. Will you attend the VT meeting in Krakow next month?

    This is certainly somewhere I haven't visited in Poland. I like the huge tiger!

    thanks for the peek into your home town. Would like to see the older Jewish District. Maybe more pics later?
