Description

Fabryczna [faˈbrɨt͡ʂna] is one of the five administrative boroughs (dzielnicas) of Wrocław, Poland. Its functions were largely taken over on 8 March 1990 by the Municipal Office of the newly established Wrocław Municipality. The name Fabryczna remained in use, mainly for statistical and administrative purposes. The other dzielnicas are Stare Miasto, Krzyki, Psie Pole and Śródmieście. Fabryczna is a Polish adjective derived from the noun fabryka ("factory"), and therefore the name roughly translates as "industrial". It is located in the western part of the city, on the left (south) side of the Oder river. It is Wrocław's largest borough, and some of the crucial industrial facilities are located there. Fabryczna encompasses the Popowice, Kozanów, Maślice, Stabłowice, Strachowice, Grabiszyn, Leśnica, Gądów Mały, Złotniki, Mokra, Marszowice, Pracze Odrzańskie, Nowy Dwór, Muchobór Mały, Muchobór Wielki, Żerniki and Oporów osiedles.

Flood of 1997

The northern part of Fabryczna district was severely damaged in the flood of 1997, especially in the Kozanów neighbourhood, which remained flooded for two weeks. Food and medicines were supplied to its inhabitants with the help of the military. The source of the flooding of this neighbourhood was not the Oder itself but the Bystrzyca, a small river which flows into the Oder in the proximity of Kozanów.
