Trawniki can be translated as 'Lawns'. It is located in a generally flat part of the wojewodztwo of Lubelskie, becoming very slightly hilly in its southwestern part. Trawniki owes much of its growth to the coming of the railway and until the 1940's it was a junction on the main line between Warsaw and Lwow. A large part of the population was employed either on the railway or at the local knitwear factory. Today, with the changes in Poland's borders the railway is no longer so important and most of sidings, once full of goods wagons, lie empty. The knitwear factory has been privatised and split into to foriegn owned companies.
