Przemyśl (German: Proemsel) is a town in southeastern Poland. As of 1999, it belongs to the Subcarpathian Voivodeship.
Old town of Przemyśl
Przemyśl owes its long and rich history to the advantages of its geographic location. The city lies in the Przemyśl Gate, an area connecting mountains and lowlands, with easy communication and fertile soil. It also lies on the navigable San river. Important trade routes passed through Przemyśl and ensured the city's importance.
Przemyśl is the second oldest town in southern Poland, after Kraków. It appears to have been founded as early as the 8th century.
The city centre is small and manageable by foot.
