Tuchów is a town in Tarnów County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, Poland, with a population of 6,476 (2004). It lies on the Biała river, at the height of 220m above sea level. The distance to Kraków is 100km, and to the border with Slovakia, approximately 80km. The town is located on an electrified rail line from Tarnów towards Nowy Sącz and the Polish - Slovak border.HistoryThe first historical note about Tuchów dates back to 1105.

Polish writer Jan Długosz wrote in his Chronicles about the development of local artisan guilds: flourmills, carpenters, blacksmiths and furriers. By the 17th century, the town became rich by making profits from different crafts, salt exploitation and trade.
