Czaszyn [ˈt​͡ʂaʂɨn] is a Polish village in the Sanok County in the East Małopolska in the Lesser Beskid mountains. The Roman Catholic church (parish of p.w. Podwyższenia Krzyża Świętego) for the village of Czaszyn was located in the village, within the diocese of Przemyśl. The population today is about 1410 people.



Czaszyn is currently situated in the Subcarpathian Voivodship (since 1999), previously in Krosno Voivodship (1975–1998) and Sanok district, (10 miles east of Sanok), located near the towns of Medzilaborce and Palota (in northeastern Slovakia). This is within the historical region of Galicia.

The first documentation of Czaszyn appeared 1424.[1] By 1785, the village lands comprised 15.66 km² and there were 4600 Catholics. The masonry church was built and blessed in 1835, replacing an old wooden church. Church was "Translation of Saint Nicholas", built in 1835, still standing. The church was destroyed in 1946.

The village was burned in 1946 by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA). Some residents left the village for Ukraine at that time. In response, the Polish Communist government's Akcja Wisła resettlement project forced some Ukrainian residents to leave Czaszyn on April 29, 1947 for the former eastern territories of Germany.


Czaszyn about 10 miles from Sanok in south-eastern Poland. It is situated below the main watershed at the foot of the Słonne Mountain, and has an elevation of 270 meters. The municipality covers an area of 10.6617 km².
