History

The history of the city reaches back to the year 1324; from that year comes the first note. In 1346 Duszniki received a town charter, territorially belonging to the Germany at the time. Over centuries the town has been developing thanks to the trade, papermaking and weaving industry, and for some time thanks to metallurgy. In 1605 the paper mill was built, which till today is a monument on a European scale. World War II did not bring destruction to the city.

The Market Square

Duszniki’s Market square has a long history. There is a medieval arrangement, baroque and Renaissance monuments. Its direct surrounding is filled with very precious, architectural monuments, including a tenement by Słowackiego 2 street, which is the oldest building in the city (1598) and the former inn “Pod czarnym niedźwiedziem”. The Market square is also rich in many sculptures, low reliefs and plaques, which commemorate former events.

City architecture

Reaching back to the year 1324, the history of Duszniki-Zdrój is still visible in many corners of the town. The historic tenements render the unique climate, which was present here before the outbreak of World War II and earlier. Of course, the architectural gem is the Paper Mill. However, it is not the only commemoration of the past. The Market square, its surrounding buildings, a row of houses come from the times of many past ages.
