HistoryEdit

 
Castle ruins

In the Middle Ages a Slavic gród existed in present-day Dobra.[2] In the 10th century the area became part of the emerging Polish state under Mieszko I of Poland. It was granted town rights before 1331. In the 13th and 14th centuries a castle was built, rebuilt later in the 16th century,[2] and heavily damaged in the 17th to 19th centuries. In 1647, due to the plague epidemic, the population of Dobra fell from over 600 to 48 people.[2] In 1895, a narrow-gauge railway was built, connecting the town with Stargard.[2]
