In the area under the authority of the marshal of the court, duels were forbidden, its border was the Jeziorka river, so a secluded place was used (today’s Zdrojowy Park or the Grapa estate). The name of the city comes from the name of its founder – countess Konstancja Potulicka Skórzewska. Forest areas near Warsaw, located on the extension of the Royal Route with access by the Wilanów Railway, were extremely popular among the upper class.
