Zagórze Śląskie arouse at the foot of Grodno Castle (Kynsburg) built in the late 13th century by Duke Bolko I the Strict as a fortress near the border with the Kingdom of Bohemia. After it had fallen to the Bohemian crown in 1368 it was held as a fief by various possessors, among them the Counts of Hoberg at Książ until 1567 and Prince Michael the Brave of Wallachia.
After 1945 the village passed to Poland.
