It is located in the north of the historic Neumark (Nowa Marchia) region on the Słubia creek, a right tributary of the Oder River. The town centre is situated on the western shore of Morzycko Lake (Jezioro Morzycko), with a maximum depth of 58.5 m (192 ft) the deepest within the Pomeranian Lakeland.
The Moryń peninsula had been the site of a West Slavic fortress, which the Wittelsbach elector Otto V of Brandenburg had rebuilt in 1365. The adjacent settlement was mentioned as a town in 1306. With the Neumark region, it was given in pawn to the Teutonic Knights between 1402 and 1454. Mohrin was devastated during a Hussite campaign in 1433.
In 1892 Mohrin received access to the Wriezen Railway line from Berlin to Königsberg/Neumarkt (presenst-day Chojna). After World War II, the town east of the Oder–Neisse line fell to the Republic of Poland according to the 1945 Potsdam Agreement and the remaining German population was expelled.
