History of Ząbkowice Śląskie

Ząbkowice Śląskie was established in the second half of the13th century next to the former Slavic market settlement Sadlno, through which ran the amber route connecting Silesia directly with the Czech Republic.

Tragic consequences for the city of Ząbkowice Śląskie was the Thirty Years’ War, during which the city was completely destroyed, only nearly 100 houses have survived. The devastation of this war was the cause of a long-term slowdown in the city’s development. In April 1858, a huge fire broke out in the city, which destroyed the Renaissance town hall, the parish church and the adjoining bell tower.

The second half of the 19th century was the era of economic development for the whole of Silesia, and at that time Ząbkowice Śląskie was quickly rebuilt, becoming a well-developed and modern city. The first small industrial plants were built in the city – a furniture and hat factory, a sugar factory, current railway lines and necessary municipal facilities.
