The origins of Grodziec, a village lying near Skoczów, go back to at least the twelfth century. The name comes from the wooden Grodek, which in Polish means “an old small settlement”. Grodek, situated in the Duchy of Cieszyn, guarded the trade route from the Polish capital of Kraków, through Cieszyn towards Moravia and Bohemia. For the first time, the village was mentioned as "Świesza" at the beginning of the fourteenth century. At the end of that century, a brick building was erected on the site of the wooden watchtower.
