For many centuries, Garbary was an important industrial centre for the city of Kraków and the whole of Małopolska region. This suburb, located to the north-west of the city walls, developed most actively at the turn of the Middle Ages and modern times. Although Garbary had no vital trade routes or a market place, the suburb was the most populous and the most developed economically municipal area (known as jurydyka), and its inhabitants were characterised by a high degree of professional specialisation. Garbary owed its name to the tanners who settled there, and who had numerous yet small workshops producing leather.
