Gorzow Wielkopolski

3.4
Gorzów Wielkopolski is a city in western Poland, on the Warta river. It is the second largest city in the Lubusz Voivodeship with 124,116 inhabitants (June 2015) and one of its two capitals with a seat of a Voivodeship governor (the other is Zielona Góra). Previously it was the capital of the Gorzów Voivodeship (1975–1998).Gorzów is known for its successful sportsmen, including Olympic and world champions and national representatives. The city is also known as the hometown of former Polish Prime Minister Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz.Around Gorzów, there are two large forest areas: Gorzów Woods to the north, where the Barlinek-Gorzów Landscape Park is situated, and Noteć Woods to the southeast. The biggest oil fields in Poland are located near Gorzów.EtymologyThe Polish name Gorzów, written as Gorzew, is known from Polish maps and historical books dating back to the 19th century or perhaps earlier.It appeared in a compendium called Ancient Poland according to its history, geography and statistics published in 1848 by Samuel Orgelbrand in Warsaw. Ten years earlier, in 1838, the same name Gorzew was used in a book published in Paris with a corresponding yet broader title encompassing all of Poland.The current spelling of "Gorzów" appears on the map featuring "Królestwo Polskie" published in Lviv in 1900 with "Landsberg an der Warthe" in parenthesis next to "Gorzów". The name is interpreted in several different ways according to rules of the Old Polish language, originating from "gorzenie" (fire, burning) or "pogorzelcy" (survivors of a fire), or alternatively "gorzelnia" (distillery) or "gorzałka" (spirits).
