Already 750 years BC area of Lower Silesia was inhabited by tribes of the Lusatian culture farm, 300 years later began to arrive Celtic tribes, representing a higher level of organization and production techniques, they quickly assimilated with the local population and the mountain Sleza became the center of the Celtic cult of the Sun. The tribes gathered around this religious and political center were called "Slezanie" from their name is derived the name of the region - Silesia. Modern History of Lower Silesia is a very rich and tumultuous, I just mention that initially ruled here the princes of the Piast dynasty, after the Tartar invasions and the division into small principalities, in the mid-thirteenth century, Silesia was addicted to the Czech. From 1526r. Austrian Habsburgs seized it and since 1742 came under Prussian rule. In 1945 it returned to Poland.
