Kłopot, Lubusz Voivodeship
Kłopot [ˈkwɔpɔt] (literally: "trouble"; German: Kloppitz) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Cybinka, within Słubice County, Lubusz Voivodeship, Poland at the border with Germany.
It lies near the eastern banks of the Oder river opposite the German town of Eisenhüttenstadt, approximately 11 kilometres (7 mi) south-west of Cybinka, 26 km (16 mi) south of Słubice, 60 km (37 mi) west of Zielona Góra, and 77 km (48 mi) south-west of Gorzów Wielkopolski. The village has a population of about 160.
The settlement in the former Lubusz Land was first mentioned in a 1350 deed issued by Louis I of Wittelsbach, then Margrave of Brandenburg, who gave it to the Order of Saint John. Plans to connect the village to the Lusatian town of Fürstenberg west of the Oder (today part of Eisenhüttenstadt) similar to Frankfurt/Oder - Słubice had existed since Charles IV of Luxembourg became the sole ruler of both territories in 1373.
The building of a bridge was finished in 1919; it was blown up by retiring Wehrmacht troops on 4 February 1945 after the Red Army had reached the river in the course of the Vistula-Oder Offensive. After World War II the area together with the Neumark fell to Poland (see Territorial changes of Poland after World War II).
