Named for Factory

Fabryczna [faˈbrɨt͡ʂna] is one of the five administrative boroughs (dzielnicas) of Wrocław, Poland. Fabryczna is a Polish adjective derived from the noun fabryka ("factory"), and therefore the name roughly translates as "industrial". It is located in the western part of the city, on the left (south) side of the Oder river. It is Wrocław's largest borough, and some of the crucial industrial facilities are located there.

Flood of 1997[edit]

The northern part of Fabryczna district was severely damaged in the flood of 1997, especially in the Kozanów neighbourhood, which remained flooded for two weeks. Food and medicines were supplied to its inhabitants with the help of the military. The source of the flooding of this neighbourhood was not the Oder itself but the Bystrzyca, a small river which flows into the Oder in the proximity of Kozanów.
