Firlej [Firlejów](Firlejow)
This large village was first mentioned in 1557, its name coming from the name of the family who established it. There was a strong handicraft and craft tradition here and was famous for its pottery. However, the pottery skills have been lost as the market for pottery ware decreased in the 20th century. In 1839, when the estate was owned by Henryk Łubieński (Lubienski), a factory of tools and agricultural equipment was started here, the first in the Lublin region. Firlej lost its town rights in 1869, and was then destroyed by retreating Russians in WW1. Firlej never recovered from this until the 1960's, when people started to come here for lakeside holidays. There are 2 large lakes, with lakeside houses situated among trees to be rented.
