Fabryczna is a Polish adjective derived from the noun fabryka ("factory"), and therefore the name roughly translates as "industrial". It is located in the western part of the city, on the left (south) side of the Oder river. It is Wrocław's largest borough, and some of the crucial industrial facilities are located there.

Fabryczna encompasses the Popowice, Kozanów, Maślice, Stabłowice, Strachowice, Grabiszyn, Leśnica, Gądów Mały, Złotniki, Mokra, Marszowice, Pracze Odrzańskie, Nowy Dwór, Muchobór Mały, Muchobór Wielki, Żerniki and Oporów osiedles.

Flood of 1997Edit

The northern part of Fabryczna district was severely damaged in the flood of 1997, especially in the Kozanów neighbourhood, which remained flooded for two weeks. Food and medicines were supplied to its inhabitants with the help of the military. The source of the flooding of this neighbourhood was not the Oder itself but the Bystrzyca, a small river which flows into the Oder in the proximity of Kozanów.

LandmarksEdit

Fabryczna is home to the Wroclaw Municipal Stadium as well as several parks including Park Zachodni, and Park Tysiąclecia. The A8 highway runs through he district. The Milenijny and Rędziński bridges connect it to the other side of the Oder. The dzielnica is the location of the Magnolia Park shopping mall. It is also the home of the Wrocław Airport.
