A county town with nearly 50 thousand inhabitants, with the county rights, is located right in the heart of Poland between two Poland's largest agglomerations: Warsaw and Łódź. Thanks to its high-speed rail service and good road connections, giving easy access to international airports, Skierniewice is a great place to live. Other benefits of living in the town include: area of national forest complex on the outskirts of the town, a low crime rate and benefits of use of thermal water resources.
Skierniewice received its municipal rights in 1457 and was subsequently in the possession of the Archbishops of Gniezno for more than 300 years. During the time of occupation of Poland by the three great empires of Austria-Hungary, Russia and Germany, Skierniewice became a residence of the Russian Tsar. In 1845 the town was incorporated into the main Warsaw to Vienna railway line and, as a result, a spirit of openness and hospitality became an integral part of the mindset of Skierniewice's inhabitants.
