The triangle of the Three Emperors

31 st March Monday 2014


Three Emperors' Corner is a former tripoint at the confluence of the Black and White Przemsza rivers, near the town of Mysłowice in the present-day Silesian Voivodeship of Poland. From 1871 to 1918, it marked the border between the Russian EmpireAustria-Hungary and the German Empire. At that time Poland didn't exist . Sosnowiec is a city which is located in Upper Silesia and it is  very interesting of historical point of view the Triangfle of Three Emperors is here. In 1815 - 1846 the boundaries of the Kingdom Prussia, the Austrian Empire, and the Russian Empire converged in this very place.The place was given its name in 1871, after the reunification of Germany, when it became  also the frontier point with the German Empire.
Now the Triangle belongs to Myslowice and Sosnowiec.
