Description

Międzybórz [mʲɛnˈd͡zɨbuʂ], also known as Międzybórz Sycowski (German: Neumittelwalde, until 1886 Medzibor), is a town in Oleśnica County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It is the seat of the administrative district (gmina) called Gmina Międzybórz. It lies approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) north-east of Oleśnica, and 54 kilometres (34 mi) north-east of the regional capital Wrocław. The settlement was first mentioned in 1228, when it was part of fragmented Poland. From 1313 it was part of the Duchy of Oleśnica, remaining ruled by the Piast dynasty until 1492. The town's name is of Polish origin, meaning "między borami", that is "between forests". It received town privileges in 1637. Since the 19th century it has been a centre of the Polish Protestant faith. As at 2019, the town has a population of 2,341.
