Inowrocław was one of princely capitals of medieval Poland. Later it became the seat of province governor (voivode) until the first partition of Poland in 1772, when it was awarded to Prussia (and later Germany). With the change of trade routes in late 15th century the town lost its importance. The situation changed with the discovery of large salt deposits. Inowrocław became major spa resort and mining site. The mine is closed now, but in the southern part of the city there is located a big chemical plant.
