Zagan

Żagań is a town on the Bóbr river in western Poland, with 26,253 inhabitants . The town is the capital of Żagań County in the historic region of Silesia. Previously in the Zielona Góra Voivodeship, Żagań has been in the Lubusz Voivodeship since 1999. Before 1945 it was part of Germany.ToponymyThe town's name probably means "place of the burnt forest" : probably referring to the burning of primaeval forest by early settlers. If this is correct, it is consistent with the names of nearby places: Żary, Zgorzelec, Pożarów.GeographyŻagań is located roughly halfway between Cottbus and Wroclaw/Breslau, approximately 100 meters above sea level and at the centre of the Żagań administrative district. It is approximately 100 km (63 miles) north of the Polish frontier with the former Czechoslovakia (now the Czech republic), and since the most recent reconfiguration of the frontiers has been located approximately 40 km (25 miles) to the east of the Polish frontier with Germany (formerly East Germany). The rural district of Żagań surrounds the town on its northern, eastern and southern sides. Iłowa lies to the south-west and the rural district of Żary is to the north-west. The Rivers Bóbr and Kwisa meet up just outside the town on its south-eastern side.
