The Gmina of Kock
The gmina of Kock has a population of 7100 and covers an area of 100.5 sq.km. The southern border of the gmina is formed by the rivers Tysmienica in the west and the Wieprz in the east. The Czarna is the other significant river, and flows south through the gmina, with many large lakes near the town of Kock. The south eastern corner is an area of wetlands, adjacent to the Wieprz. With all this water, it should be of no surprise to discover that fish farming is a speciality here. Most villages in the gmina are formed partly, or completely of scattered farmsteads, each in their own plot of land. Other villages, with some exceptions (like Zakalew) are formed as a series of buildings either side of one road, and may be as long as 1km. Many farmstead villages are just a convenient name for farmsteads scattered across the sides of a shallow valley.

A town that was the place where the last battle of the defensive war of 1939 took place. There is a war cemetery here. There is a palace from the 18th century, located in a landscaped park. The present church is in the classical style and dates from 1782, but there has probably been a church here since the 12th century. Kock received town rights in 1417 and was later an important Calvinist centre. In 1750 the estate was bought by Princess Anna Jabłonowska (Jablonowska), who remodelled it including the buildings in the market square. There are many old houses in the town dating from this period and later. 50% of the population were Jews and it was a centre of the Chasidil movement.
The town sits on the east bank of the Czarna river, which forms a series of large lakes at this point, on wetlands just to the north of the confluence of the Czarna, Tysmienica and Wieprz rivers.
