Lubań/Lauban – Old trading town

Lubań (once Lauban) is one of the oldest towns in Lower Silesia. Today in Poland, it is situated in the foothills of the Jizera Mountains, on the little River Kwisa. In the Middle Ages, significant trade and travel routes crossed here, making Lubań a town of merchants and craftsmen. Weaving and brew – ing in particular gave the town its good reputation in the region. Much of the wall built to encircle the town in 1318 still remains, a sign of Lubań's resistance to attackers. The 45-metre-high Brüderturm Tower also dates back to this period. There are also buildings which have graced the town since the 14th to 16th centuries, including the Marienkirche (Church ).
