The name[edit]

The name Łobez comes from the Old Polish łobuzie (meaning "bushes").

History[edit]

Łobez was first mentioned in a document from 1271, according to which a knight named Borko was the owner of the city. In 1295, Łobez received rights as a city. Before 1945 the area was part of Germany (Province of Pomerania). Following World War II the native German populace was expelled and replaced by Poles.
