Ряшів | Rzeszˇw | Жешув

Rzeszˇw (Ukrainian: Ряшiв, Riashiv; Russian: Ряшев; Latin: Resovia) is a city in southeastern Poland with a population of 179,455 in 2010.



It is located on both sides of the Wisłok River, in the heartland of the Sandomierska Valley. The city, which was granted a town charter in 1354, has been the capital of the Subcarpathian Voivodeship since 1999.

Rzeszˇw is located on an important trade route from Silesia and Lesser Poland (Małopolska) to Ruthenia.

Rzeszˇw became a town in 1354, when the Polish king, Casimir III the Great, gave it city rights (Magdeburg rights). At the time it was a remote Ruthenian settlement.

The period of greatest prosperity for the town was the last 25 years of the 16th century and the first 40 years of the 17th century when it became an important centre of trade and craftsmanship.

This "golden period" of Rzeszowian history is directly linked with the authority of one man ľ Mikołaj Spytko Ligęza (Polish noble man and owner of Rzeszˇw). He developed and fortified Rzeszˇw in a contemporary manner. He funded the purchase of church ceremonial objects and contributed to the construction of new municipal buildings. In 1591 he built the Town Hall and in 1600 he started to construct an impressive castle. He followed this by surrounding the town with a defensive embankment (1627). Between 1624 and 1629 he founded the fortified Bernadine monastery where, in the church, the Ligęza family mausoleum was built. Records, dated from the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th centuries, which name some of the goldsmiths working in the town, confirm the prosperity of Rzeszˇw. Among them was an exceptional craftsman, Wawrzyniec Kasprowicz.



Subsequently ownership of Rzeszˇw passed to the Lubomirski, one of the most important noble families in Poland at the time. Besides having a famous annual market, Rzeszˇw remained only another city on the trade route to Hungary. In 1658 Jerzy Sebastian Lubomirski established the Piarist school, the second secondary school in Poland.



During the 19th century Rzeszˇw began to lose significance in favour of Przemyśl, nevertheless in 1858 the railway came to the town and in 1863 was extended to Lwˇw/Lviv.

In 1910 Rzeszˇw had 23,000 inhabitants, mostly Poles and Jews.



Development of Rzeszˇw started when in 1937 military industry was located in the city: Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze, producing aircraft engines, and a cannon factoryľ a branch of Hipolit Cegielski factory.

During the Second World War, Rzeszˇw was partly destroyed. Monuments, tenements and industrial property were reduced to rubble. The occupying forces murdered a large number of local people and almost totally exterminated the local Jewish community.

In 1944 after the liberation from German Occupation, Rzeszˇw was nominated as the capital of the Rzeszˇw province and the administrative cultural centre for southeast Poland (after loosing Lwow).

This determined the path of city development. In 1952, the city grew in size by a factor of four as a result of combining with its neighbouring areas.

After the Second World War Rzeszˇw became the most important academic centre in southeast Poland. In 1963 two schools of higher education were opened ľ the teachers training college and the higher engineers school which, in 1974, was renamed Ignacy Łukasiewicz Rzeszˇw Polytechnic. The Rzeszˇw Polytechnic has the only aeronautical training civilian faculty in the country.

Currently there are seven colleges serving approximately 50,000 students.

Today Rzeszˇw is the largest urban area among the cities in southeast Poland, an unquestioned trade and economic centre, the largest academic and cultural centre, the capital of Podkarpackie and the headquarters of the Diocesian authorities.

Красиве місто, ратуша дуже сподобалась. Тільки ніколи не чув щоб його ще хтось в Україні Ряшевом називав. Принаймні у Франківську, яке з Ряшевом міста-побратими, вже всі кажуть Жешув.

Це дуже цікаве, тому що, так згідно з лігвістичним законом, повинно бути "Ряшів", але Вікіпедія каже, що можнa теж говорити "Жешув".

Історична назва - Ряшів. В літературі довоєнного видання, його тільки так і називали (там доречі в околицях проживало багато Українців). Проблема в тому що нац. керівництво України не дбає за власну історію і топономіку. Для прикладу - в сучасні польскі літературі не пишеця "Львів" а - "Львув" - як його поляки історично вимовляють. Так самой не пишется "Київ" а натомісь "Кійов". Наші чомусь (може з незнання?) замісь Ряшева, пишуть його польську вимову "Жешув". Така сама проблема зі словом "костел". В багатьох виданнях чомусь пишется російський варіант "костьол", хоча правільно na ukrainski maje бути костел.

П.С. Чудові фото, місто дуже сподобалось!

Now, as we speak about railway stations in PL, there's some good news, i.e. it's reported that the revitalisation/modernisation projects have been going on at 77 stations (http://robisie.eu). The one in Rzeszˇw doesn't appear to be among them, though.

unfortunately not - anyway - I am trying to be up to date with Ukrainian cities by following Ukrainian forum - I am much more interested in what is going on in Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus (in terms of development) then in Germany for example.
