Rozgart [ˈrɔzɡart] (German: Preussisch Rosengart) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Gronowo Elbląskie, within Elbląg County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland.[1] It lies approximately 5 kilometres (3 mi) south of Gronowo Elbląskie, 9 km (6 mi) south-west of Elbląg, and 85 km (53 mi) west of the regional capital Olsztyn.

History[edit]

Before 1945 the area was part of Germany (East Prussia), at that time with the name Preussisch Rosengart (abbreviated: Pr. Rosengart).

The village was founded in the 14th century (around 1312-14). Its previous name "Rosengart" or "Rosengarten" is believed to stem from the word/name "Roßgarten".

In the 16th century, Mennonite settlers also came to the village of Rosengart. The Rosengart Mennonite community was part of the Thiensdorf-Pr.Rosengart parish; Mennonite churches were located in Markushof (today: Markusy) and Thiensdorf (today: Jezioro).

In 1890, a separate Mennonite church was built in Pr. Rosengart - which is now a Catholic church.

Population[edit]

In 1773, 299 people (in 59 families) lived in the village.

In 1939, the population number was 384 (217 Protestants, 108 Catholics, 59 other confessions - mostly Mennonites).

Today, the village has a population of 150.
