Etymology and location
Tarnów lies at the Carpathian foothills, on the Dunajec and the Biała rivers. The area of the city is 72.4 km2, and it is divided into 16 districts, known in Polish as osiedla. A few kilometers west of the city lies the district of Moscice, built in the late 1920s, together with a large chemical plant. The district was named after President of Poland, Ignacy Mościcki.
In first documented mention of the settlement (1105), it was spelled Tharnow. The name later evolved - Tarnowo (1229), Tarnów (1327), Tharnow (1473). The place name Tarnów is widely used in different forms across Slavic Europe, and lands which used to be inhabited by Slavs, such as eastern Germany, Hungary, and northern Greece. There is a German town Tarnow, Greek Tyrnavos (also spelled as Tirnovo), Czech Trnov, Bulgarian Veliko Tarnovo and Malko Tarnovo, as well as different Trnovos/Trnowos in Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Bosnia, and Macedonia. The name Tarnów comes from an early Slavic word trn/tarn, which means a thorn, i.e. an area covered by thorny plants.
Tarnów is an important road and rail hub. It lies at the intersection of two major roads - the A4 motorway European route E40, and National Road nr. 73, which goes from Kielce to Jasło. Furthermore, the city is a rail junction, with four lines - three main electrified routes (westwards to Kraków, eastwards to Dębica and southwards to Nowy Sącz), as well as secondary importance local connection to Szczucin. The history of rail transport in Tarnów dates back to the year 1856, when Galician Railway of Archduke Charles Louis reached the city. The complex of Tarnów Main Station, patterned after the Lviv railway station was completed in 1906. Since 2010, Tarnów station houses a gallery of modern art, the only such gallery located in a rail station in Poland. Tarnów also has three additional stations - Tarnów Moscice, as well as Tarnów Polnocny and Tarnów Klikowa, both of which are currently out of service.
The city's public transport system keeps 29 municipal bus routes, which provide convenient transport to all districts. Furthermore, in 1911-1942 Tarnów had a tram line, with the length of 2,500 meters.
Tarnów is an important center of economy and industry. The city has chemical plants (Zakłady Azotowe w Tarnowie-Mościcach S.A., Becker Farby Przemysłowe Sp. z o.o., Summit Packaging Polska Sp. z o.o.), mechanical industry), food plants Chłodniczego "Fritar", building materials (Leier Polska S.A., Bruk-Bet), textiles (Spółdzielnia "Tarnowska Odzież, Tarnospin, Tarkonfex"), and several warehouses, as well as a distribution center of the Lidl chain. Furthermore, Tarnów is an important center of natural gas industry, with headquarters of three gas corporations.
In the ninth century St. Martin's Hill at a distance of about 2.5 km south of the present city center (now is the land of the village Zawada) was founded Slavic gord an area of over 20 hectares surrounded by fortifications in the form of high embankments. It functioned until the beginning of the eleventh century. This gord was one of the largest such facilities in Poland In the 989 gord with the entire country was incorporated into the Polish state. At the end of the eleventh century abandoned gord and a settlement with bulkheads they were assigned by Princess Judyta, wife of Władysław I Herman, the Benedictine abbey in Tyniec near Kraków. In one of them Benedictines founded the village Tarnów (today Tarnowiec) was first mentioned in 1124.
First documented mention of Tarnów (village in a place where Spycimir Leliwa coat of arms later founded the city) comes from the year 1309, when the list of miracles of Saint Kinga specifies a woman named Marta, who was resident of the settlement. In 1327, a magnate and knight named Spycimir (Leliwa coat of arms) purchased a village of Tarnów Wielki, and three years later, founded his own private town. On March 7, 1330, King Władysław I the Elbow-high granted Magdeburg rights to Tarnów. In 1331, construction of a castle on the St. Martin Hill was completed by Castellan of Kraków, Spycimir Leliwita of Leliwa coat of arms (its ruins can still be seen). The castle raised on a sandstone rock, on a north edge of the Carpathians Mountains 2 km from the Old Town. The fortress consisted of two wards, a “Przygródek” (outer ward with the main gate - the economic part of the castle and the seat of government latifundium Tarnów) and “Zamek Wysoki” (high castle) served as the residence of Tarnowski family. There was also a chapel of the Blessed Virgin. These both wards were surrounded by separate walls and divided by deep ditch, over that was thrown a bridge. On a courtyard of high castle there was a circular bergfried, a strong point of defence. To 1567. city Spycimir was owned by descendants bearing the name Tarnowski. Tarnów for centuries remained a private town, being successively owned by families: Tarnowski, Ostrogski, Zasławski and Sanguszko. Until the creation of Zamość was probably the largest city in the Kingdom of Polish belonging to the family of oligarchs. In 1364. Rafał from Tarnów, the son of Spycimir bought the rights of hereditary voit in Tarnów. So that the owners of the town gained a much greater impact on his life, through their managers, or burgraves, and later starostas. Among the first residents of Tarnów approximately 20% were German-speaking townspeople brought probably from Nowy Sącz as better acquainted with the functioning of the city under Magdeburg rights. January 7 every year the citizens of Tarnów elected six councilors. Each of them in turn for a month held the office of mayor.
One of the first brick buildings in Tarnów was parisch church (the first mention in 1346) Nativity of the Virgin Mary. In the 2nd half. XIV. were founded the parish school (the first mention 1413.) and the first guilds. Among the craftsmen in Tarnów were the most drapers and linen-drapers (the first mention of a guild of drapers and linen-drapers 1444). The merchants on a larger scale traded oxen imported from Red Ruthenia and Moldova. In Poland Tarnów commercial interests united mainly to Kraków, Bochnia, Biecz, Krosno, Nowy Sącz, Opatowiec, industry and Sandomierz. In the Kingdom of Hungary he maintained a close relationship Tarnów primarily from Bardejov and Kežmarok. Positive impact on the economic development of the city privileges were achieved in successive rulers for the efforts of the Polish Tarnów owners. The first of these was the privilege of 1419. assigned by King Władysław II Jagiełło. The King of the authorized dealers Tarnów to transport goods to Wrocław route through Opatowiec, Lelów and Krzepice (so you can get around Kraków, where in effect the staple right) and released them from paying customs duties applicable to it.
Approximately half of the fourteenth century city was surrounded by a fortified wall (first mention 1448.) length of 900 m with towers and two large gates (Krakowska from the west and Pilzneńska from the east) and one smaller gate on the south. Brick perimeter defense in the private city was a great rarity in Polish scale. After its construction was founded civilian archers' fraternity (the first mention of 1555.). Its members were obliged to shooting exercises and defense fortifications of the city (the first mention of 1555.). With events in the life of Tarnów in the fourteenth century. It should be noted royal visits: Kazimierz Wielki - in 1362 and 1363 Jadwiga – 1390, Władysław Jagiełło – 1392, and franciscan Jakub Strzemię consecration as bishop in Halych – 1392  At the end of the fourteenth century at the southern wall of the parish church built the first chapel. It was the chapel of St. Cross, also called the chapel of Corpus Christi.
In 1400. bishop of Kraków Piotr Wysz established at the parish church collegiate chapter, headed by the provost. In the following years for the collegiate church at the town wall were built houses of the canons, or members of the chapter. In the same year as the first in the list of students refurbished the Academy in Kraków was Maciej from Tarnów. In the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century, the richest merchant in Tarnów was Stanisław Zalasowski. He trading with cities in Poland and abroad, as well as credit operations as a banker Tarnowski family. With their support Zalasowski was knighted by the king.
In the fifteenth century in Tarnów and its suburbs were created important religious foundations. In 1415. voivode of Kraków Jan of Tarnów and his brother Spytek, founded at the collegiate "at the grave of his father," a new chapel with an altar dedicated Sending the Apostles. Call the Chapel of the Apostles Sending refers to the feast, which is celebrated in the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church July 15. Because on that day in 1410. fought the Battle of Grunwald in which both brothers attended, this foundation can be interpreted also as a vote for victory in this battle. Probably in 1440. at the Great Suburb was consecrated by cardinal Isidore of Kiev Isidore of Kiev wooden church built by the residents of that suburb. Today it is the Church of Our Lady of the Scapular on Burek. In 1448. decision of the city councilors and the effort of the city with built chapel Holy Spirit at the hospital (shelter) for the walls (today in this place J. Bem square). In 1459. at the Little Suburb on the south-eastern side of the city walls Jan Amor Iunior from Tarnów, along with his brother Jan Rafał, a canon of Kraków, they built a wooden monastery with the Church Our Lady of the Snows for the franciscans observants (Bernardines). In 1467. founded by Jan Amor Iunior from Tarnów (owner of Tarnów in the years 1448 to 1500) in place of the wooden buildings of the monastery and church started to build brick buildings. The work was completed in 1499. probably. The whole team was surrounded by a brick and earthen fortifications connected to the city walls. Currently, these buildings after rebuilding acted as secular. In the second half of the fifteenth century Tarnów already in operation steam and a wooden water pipe supplying water from the village Krzyż (today the city district) into the tanks on the market. From 1448. first mentioned in written sources about the existence of the town hall (brick or wood).
The town's development was interrupted by two or three big fires in 1483 and 1494. They destroyed the city still made up mostly of wooden buildings. As part of the reconstruction plan Tarnów conducted a correction tracking. At the same time allowed to postpone built into the market, which enabled the construction of houses with extended arcade. The first one was probably house Rynek 5 (Market 5). They rebuilt and enlarged as collegiate in Tarnów. It was built by her high tower, added the vault and short chancel of late Gothic stalls preserved to this day. It also was added to the south chapel of Our Lady of the Scapular and the ornate portal to the southern entrance. In the center of the Market built two brick buildings official. First intended for the court voit’s and jurors. The second building with a tower, used as the seat of the city council with the mayor, or the appropriate city hall. From 1445. comes the first mention of a Jew from Tarnów (his name Kaleph), and in 1498 about Jewish stalls in Tarnów. In the years 1468 and 1482. Tarnów reached the first written sources epidemics.
The sixteenth century
Approximately 1513. began work on the renovation and expansion of the city's fortifications on the second line (brick rampart and the embankment) from the side of the streets today Wałowa and Targowa. It was strengthened two main gates: Krakowska and Pilzneńska and smaller at the current Wielkie Schody (Grand Staircase) Street also built the bastions at the monastery. Work on the fortified walls lasted until 1544. founded in that time, including half-moon tower preserved to this day at Basztowa Street. This work supported financially and supervised the grand crown hetman and castellan of Kraków Jan Amor Tarnowski, owner of the town since 1514.
On the initiative of Jan Amor Tarnowski originated in the collegiate magnificent tombstones dedicated to her mother, first wife, father, brother and son. The first of these is an example of the transition from Gothic to Renaissance style. Other Renaissance monuments have been ordered in the studio Bartolommeo Berrecci. In 1524. at the request of Jan and Barbara Mikołajowski coat of arms Griffin from nearby Mikołajowice was completed reconstruction of a brick house near the collegiate called since then “Mikołajowski". The house is in an almost unchanged survived to our times. At around the same time two buildings of municipal authorities in the market combined in one town hall. In 1526. for the Krakowska Gate, founded by Adam Eberhard townsman built wooden church Saint Anne (in 1654. rebuilt in brick). In 1994. it was exposed its foundations. In the 20s or 30s XVI. at the initiative of Hetman Jan Amor Tarnowski Tarnów castle was rebuilt by introducing into its design elements of the Renaissance. The whole high castle was fortified with thick curtains of walls, on the flanks there placed half-moon bastions. On the east side there was built huge building. It was probably an artillery bastion. There were also new embankment and earthworked bastions. In this time Jan Amor Tarnowski castle was visited by the distinguished creators Polish Reneissance, like: Jan Kochanowski, Jan Frycz Modrzewski, Andrzej Orzechowski and many other. Inside there was situated the famous library. From April 4 until October 2, 1528. Jan Amor Tarnowski castle and income of the city made available to King of Hungary Jan Zápolya. He from the castle Tarnów had sought to regain control over his kingdom. Before leaving Tarnów King in gratitude for the hospitality he gave the city five hundred Hungarian złoty income from trade tariffs, paid so far by the townspeople of Tarnów. The original of this privilege is stored in the Regional Museum in Tarnów. In 1537. in the castle and the town was visited by the King of Poland Sigismund I the Old, along with the queen Bona Sforza.
According to the census of 1536 the tax. Tarnów had 200 houses and probably with the suburbs from 1500 to 2000 inhabitants. From 1533. comes the first mention of a pharmacy in Tarnów. In the years 1554-1560 Jan Amor Tarnowski as the owner of Tarnów and an expert with Magdeburg law inscribed in the books of the city (Acta obligationum) rules and laws governing the functioning of the security and defense of the city. W 1559. he developed the principles of operation of the collegiate school. It was the first known in Poland magnate initiative for educating young people bourgeois. At that time, the foundation of Father provost Marcin Łyczko was built brick school building. Today, his former classroom serves as an exhibition hall of the Diocesan Museum. Since 1547. upon receipt by Jan Amor Tarnowski hereditary title of count's latifundium Tarnów also come to be called the County Tarnów.
At the end of the life of Jan Amor Tarnowski (d. 1561) began work on the construction of his tombstone in the collegiate church. Tombstone designed and made Gianmaria Mosca called Padovano. Reneissance monument was inspired by monuments Venetian doges. After the death of Jan Krzysztof Tarnowski (son of Jan Amor Tarnowski) in 1567. Padovano also had to rearrange a monument to the story, to place the figure of Jan Krzysztof Tarnowski. The result was the highest (13.8 m) in Poland (and probably the highest in the north of the Alps), a Renaissance monument, extended even later section on his sister, Zofia Ostrogska (d. 1570). After the death of castellan of Wojnicz Jan Krzysztof Tarnowski County Tarnów has become its property. Since 1553. Zofia was married to duke Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski, the governor (voivode) of Kiev province. In 1568. completed the reconstruction of the town hall in the Mannerist style. In his attic, modeled on the attic Krakow's Cloth Hall were portraits of the 28 magnates Leliwa coat of arms of the families Tarnowski, Melsztyński and Jarosławski. At this time in Tarnów he accepted the model bourgeois Renaissance building, visible today best in tenements Rynek (Market) 19, 20 and 21. Tarnowski family line, called the older, made unsuccessful attempt to redeem County Tarnów, who after the death of Zofia would accrue to her husband Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski. In April of 1570. Stanisław Tarnowski with the help of the oligarchs, having a private feud with duke Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski, brought the armed forces who stormed the castle Tarnów. Townspeople remained loyal to Zofia and her husband, whose military blockade of the castle began which lasted until July 1570. The following year, Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski received from King Sigismund Augustus confirm the hereditary possession of the County Tarnów and Stanisław Tarnowski warrant century of silence about the case and pay a huge compensation for Ostrogski.
In the years 1578-1585 the efforts of duke Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski King Stephen Báthory (Tarnów visited twice - in 1576 and 1578) released five privileges of trade for Tarnów. In 1581. Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski issued first privilege for the Jews of Tarnów, where he took them from municipal law and guaranteed the inviolability of the synagogue and cemetery. In times when Tarnów was owned by Konstanty Wasyl Ostrogski (d. 1608) abuse problem became made by starostas appointed by him. Shortly after 1587. he endowed his son Janusz and gave him Tarnów.
At the end of the sixteenth century, duke Janusz Ostrogski brought to Tarnów Scots. They were initially in his court. Then they came Tarnów Scottish immigrants originating, inter alia Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee. In the seventeenth century, the Scots were already the largest non-Polish national group among the townspeople of Tarnów. Most of the Scots were shopkeepers, but among them were also merchants doing business on a large scale. In the seventeenth century they were the most economically active part of the inhabitants of Tarnów. Scot Alexander Dixon was for a time the voit of Tarnów. The newcomers from Scotland were Protestant. The dead were buried in a cemetery in the garden of Nikelson family (near the S. Staszic Street) liquidated in 1737. Until then, most Scots went back to their homeland or Polonized up. In 1597. it was consecrated church Holy Trinity on Terlikówka (since 1994 parish). In the sixteenth century, there were no major fires in Tarnów. Plague touched people in 1516 and 1572.
The seventeenth century
In 1603. brothers Janusz and Alexander Ostrogski divided the County Tarnów. City and castle, divided into two equal parts. Because Alexander died in the same year, the estate had to be divided again between Janusz and children Alexander. From now part of Tarnów belongs to Janusz and his heirs were called "dukely" and part owned by the heirs of Alexander eventually become known as "zamoyska". This division adversely affected the development of the city. Janusz Ostrogski died in 1620 He was buried in the Collegiate Tarnów and commemorated together with his first wife Zuzanna wonderful monument made in the Mannerist style by Jan Pfister. From that moment formally half Tarnów and its suburbs became the property of his grandson Władysław Dominik Zasławski-Ostrogski, but by the time he reaches the age of majority management on the part of the "dukely" of the city held the widow of Janusz, Theophila, his grandmother.
20s and 30s the seventeenth century was a period of intense trade contacts with dealers merchants Tarnów in Gdańsk. Merchants from Tarnów, as one of the few, floated up the Vistula to Gdańsk wine, grain, salt, fruits, especially prunes and metal ores. At that time, most of the Jews in Tarnów dealt with transit trade and forbidden usury for Catholics. Their financial services were used townspeople also priests. In 1627. at the request of the city co-owner Tomasz Zamoyski of King Sigismund III Vasa approved by all guilds from Tarnów and equated them with those of Kraków. Three years later, the renovated monastery of women brought three Bernardine nuns of Lublin. In this way, the sisterhood returned to Tarnów. The first monastery was founded in 1550. deserted since the end of the sixteenth century. When the monastery was built wooden church St. Michael the Archangel (non-existent). In the 20s the seventeenth century. Rebuilt after a fire (1614) also the franciscans observants (Bernardines) church. In the 1st half the seventeenth century occurred in Tarnów to four major fires: in 1614. burned Bernardine monastery and the church; in 1617. fire destroyed much of Tarnów, including collegiate church choir and in 1621. burned down several houses in the city. A fire of unknown effects also occurred in 1632. Plague at the turn of 1622/1623 took in Tarnów about 300 victims.
In 1633. Władysław Dominik Zasławsko-Ostrogski officially took the possession, "the dukely" part of Tarnów. The second co-owner of Tomasz Zamoyski (“Zamoyska” part) . The next year they both received from King Władysław IV confirmed all royal privileges for Tarnów. In the years 1648-1651 due to the ongoing Khmelnytsky Uprising owners of the town burghers commanded repairing walls, exercises with weapons and forbid admission of strangers to the city. In 1652. Tarnów arrived from the east pandemic of bubonic plague, typhus and smallpox. It lasted almost a year culminating in the summer of 1653. According to the chronicler Bernardine died in 1500 people (the population of Tarnów at this time is estimated at about 1700 people). It was the most tragic in the history of the city a natural disaster. October 3, 1655. the Swedish army after the victory at the Battle of Wojnicz reached Tarnow. In return for giving up robbery soldiers embraced offered to them by the city of 5,000 florins. The Swedes also robbed two monasteries, where the nobility deposited his fortune. A few days later the burghers and the nobility many staying in Tarnów was able to defend against demoralized troops of the Polish army bent on pillage around. Swedish another attack took place in March 1656. and was caused by a delay in the payment of ransom for the Swedish crew of Kraków. The Swedes received 6,000 florins ransom, but they let the soldiers at night robbery of the city without Bernardine monasteries. In 1662. Tarnów had 768 inhabitants. What did not make the Swedes made a fire on June 1, 1663., which destroyed the whole town between the walls, including the town hall, the collegiate church and synagogue. After the reconstruction of the town hall in the tower clock was installed functioning today. At that time also he established a brick synagogue. During the reconstruction period Tarnów management of "dukely" part of Tarnów exercised Katarzyna of Sobieszyn (sister later the King of Poland Jan Sobieski) because her son Alexander Janusz Zasławski-Ostrogski was a minor. The "zamoyska" part belonged to Jan "Sobiepan" Zamoyski (d. 1665). In 1671. Tarnów had again presented well, because passing through the town Ulrich Werdum described it in his diary, as a neat, well-fortified city (embankments, dry moat, a wall with a porch and a strong tower), brick church and several houses in the style Italian. Restored life also at the castle. In the 70s the seventeenth century also expanded the church and Bernardine. The church of, among others, Baroque Chapel of the Immaculate Conception with a large crypt for burials benefactors, the monastery was extended by wing with the objectives for the penitents (unsaved). Also arose brick Bernardine nuns monastery (today Bernardine monks) completed in 1680. Janusz Aleksander Zasławski-Ostrogski decided to settle the matter functioning of Jews in the town. They accounted for at this time 10-12% of the inhabitants of the city. To this end, in 1670. he issued a general privilege for Jews, in which he confirmed all the privileges granted by his predecessors and led to a settlement between them and the city and features craft. In these documents it was first mentioned Jewish street (ulica Żydowska). In 1673. on the first rabbi in Tarnów selected Shmuel Shmelke Horowitz. In 1682. In Tarnów and its suburbs was 101 homes, of which about 1/3 were brick houses. The population was approximately a thousand people. In 1697. in a situation of continuous threat to the peace in the kingdom Tarnów city council signed an agreement with Synagogue (sovereignty Jews in Tarnów) on a common pay tribute both enemy forces and soldiers confederations. In the same year Teofila Ludwika with Lubomirska owner of the "dukely" Tarnów parts bought from Zygmunt Walewski part called "zamoyska". So formally became owner of both parts of Tarnów, but different legal legacy led it to long-term processes of children Zygmunt Walewski.
The eighteenth century
The year 1704 began the most difficult period in the history of the old polish Tarnów. Since December of this year to 1710 in connection with ongoing in the territories of the Poland of the to Great Northern War Tarnów repeatedly encroaching upon the army warring parties (Saxon, Swedish and Russian), forcing the contribution and lunch or stationed in town at his expense, even for a few months. In 1705. pestilence in Tarnów took many victims. Six years later, a fire destroyed 23 houses in town inhabited by Jews. In 1710. 16-year-old Aleksander Dominik Lubomirski, who inherited Tarnów County after his mother, Teofila, confirmed the rights, privileges and freedoms of data townspeople by their ancestors. Later, however, there were no expressions of interest in the affairs of the city on his part. In 1717. Tarnów had 322 residents, and the suburbs 575, the lowest in its history. By this time probably it was also eventually abandoned castle Tarnów (demolished after 1747.) As a function of temporary residence lords Tarnów began serving wooden mansion in Gumniska. We only know of two buildings, which at that time were created in Tarnow. One of them was the Chapel of Relics (saved as part of the northern nave), built in 1712. The treasury of the collegiate church, where Tarnów attributed the rapid conclusion of the plague in 1705. The second was a "pretorium," or overground part of the Chapel of the Prison of Christ the cemetery Bernardine, finished in 1713. (has not survived). Aleksander Dominik Lubomirski died childless in 1720., and Tarnów inherited from his sister Marianna, wife of duke Paweł Karol Sanguszko. This desiring prevent the total collapse of the city, in 1723. Ordered the owners of empty squares in the city that within a year and six weeks cabinetry or sold them wanting to build in. In addition, builders slowed from taxes for five years and banned those clergy and nobility having a plot in Tarnów selling them and charging sums without its prior permission. It is unclear to what extent the action encapsulating Tarnów was advanced in 1735. When in December of that year a fire destroyed the entire city within the walls and suburbs. Despite the enormity of the devastation the most pressing need was to get to Tarnów new residents. At that time the ruined city was inhabited for only a few hosts Catholics, there was no Christian merchant. Most Jews, constituting at the same time most of the population of Tarnów, crowded, occupied today the Jewish street, which posed a big threat sanitation and fire. In 1736. Paweł Karol Sanguszko allowed to settle in Tarnów Jews from other towns and surrounded them his protection. Against the settlement of the "new" Tarnów synagogue of the Jews protested, not wanting to take responsibility for unfamiliar newcomers settled in Tarnów without her will and knowledge. She tried to also forbid Jews from settling outside Jewish street. For all move owner of the town needed the approval of two bond owners of its parts. For example, when Paweł Karol Sanguszko in 1737. Ordered to pay half of the Synagogue taxes per Tarnów due to the very bad state of the city did not receive this acceptance of their representatives on the spot. Then Synagogue voluntarily pledged to pay extra 120 zł for each installment of the poll tax in addition to the 200 zł promised in 1717. Until it has improved a town. In 1742. after three years of negotiations, Paweł Karol Sanguszko paid off the mortgage of the sum owed by Tarnów, becoming his first sole owner for nearly 140 years. In 1745. At the request of King Augustus III granted for Tarnów right to organize 10 fairs a year. Sanguszko invited not all merchants to Tarnów, three years exempting them from all. Before his death in 1750. Paweł Karol Sanguszko bequeathed County Tarnów his wife Barbara Dunin. Two years later, keeping a promise made by him, she began construction of a brick church for Bernardine nuns, completed in 1776. (Now a church Bernardine monks). In the 2nd half. eighteenth century begun building boom in Tarnów, largest since the end of the sixteenth century. They rebuilt houses in the Market Square after a fire in 1743. Some of them lost at the road arcaded replaced by high ground floor. There's a new type of building in the baroque style, crowned with a high roof, often broken, with the front wall devoid of decoration, with a portal consisting of two stone pillars and arches profiled arc. The city and the suburbs were built many mansions with Baroque features. The former Great suburb preserved one of them with “lamus” (today the Etnographic Museum at the street Krakowska 10). In 1756. canon Wojciech Kaszewicz transformed the collegial school on academic colony at the Academy of Kraków. According to the letter of the act of foundation Rector of the Academy of Kraków he cast as directors and professors of Tarnów schools more able master of this Academy. In 1767. was located in Tarnów station Royal Mail. The end of the 60s the seventeenth century brought another period of unrest in the city's history related to the ongoing fighting in Lesser Poland between Bar Confederation and Russian forces. In July, 1768. Tarnów invading Russian troops. Soldiers, rape and pillage. Stolen, among others, documents and recently purchased a silver seal with a pledge transport. The following year he came to the city branch of the confederates, who has collected tribute. Because of the constant threat of the city these raids in 1771. It happened that no one in Tarnów did not want to take on the duties of the mayor and commissioner of goods princely decreed that anyone who has possessions between the walls will be successively for 12 days presided over the city council, under penalty of arrest and confiscation of property.
Under Austrian partition
