The first village is very old, known of from at least the fourteenth century – it is recorded to have been looted by king Lokietek. There are remnants of a Knights Templar’s castle visible in the foundations of one of the red-brick farm buildings. The lake peninsula where the village is located used to be home to a large estate, with the villagers first owned, and than employed by the landowning family. Although the area was collectivised in communism, after the wall fell all normalised, with three families working most of the land; others rely on state help or work abroad.
