The first mention of Myślenice appeared around the period 1253 to 1258 about the defensive fortifications in the town. Myślenice being on the north road was part of the defence, at that time of the Polish capital of Krakow. On the south side of the city there was a system of fortifications, the so-called harrow Myslenicka whose major component in Myślenice was the castle, being a stronghold at the foot Uklejny called Zamczysko.
A key date in the history of the settlement was in 1342 when the town was granted it’s civil rights by King Kazimierz the Great. Since 1342 Myślenice became officially a town and from the beginning of the 16th century it had the constitution of a royal free town and a tax-free town, it was laid out in a mediaeval style with a Market Place and streets running out from the corners. It was located on the old trading route from Krakow to Hungary.
Thanks to these customs and tax privileges, the trade and craft industries of the town developed greatly. Myślenice had strong trade contacts with the nearby towns of Orawa and Kieżmark.
Since that time the town began to grow rapidly and opened its doors to many honorable guests including Mikolaj Rej, who was author of, “The Life of an Honest Man.” king Wladyslaw II Jagiello and Queen Jadwiga, the German Emperor, Sigismund of Luxembourg, the kings of Hungary and Denmark, and many princes.
In 1557 Lawrence Jordan Spytek gave Myślenice to the castellany at Krakow. Krakow’s rulers were more preoccupied with the problems of their larger city, so Myślenice began to decline.
During the first Partition of Poland, in February 1772, (the agreement of partition was signed in Vienna), Myślenice was incorporated into the Austrian territory.
It was not until 1846 that the first Jews came to Myślenice when a synagogue was erected and a cemetery was established.
After World War I the Mayor was John Dunin-Brzezinski, who during the war was the commander of the 2nd Regiment of Cavalry Rokitniańskich.
Myślenice regained it’s fame once again in 1936, when Adam Doboszyński organized the famous “March on Myślenice”, during which Adam Doboszyński entered the town at the head of 70 supporters of the National Party. Polish nationalists then preceded to cut telephone lines, disarmed police officers, demolished Jewish shops in the market square and tried to set the local synagogue at Berka Joselewicza Street on fire.
During World War II the Germans established a ghetto in Myślenice, in which they placed about 1200 Jews. On 22 August 1942 the inhabitants of the ghetto were deported to the Skawina Ghetto and from there were eventually transported to the Bełżec death camp.

There are many restaurants covering the usual pizza to those offering local Polish traditional and regional cuisine.
Polish cuisine (Polish: kuchnia polska) is a style of cooking and food preparation originating from Poland. It has evolved over the centuries due to historical circumstances. Polish national cuisine shares some similarities with other Central European and Eastern European traditions as well as French and Italian similarities. It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending on the region) and winter vegetables (cabbage in the dish bigos), and spices.
It is also characteristic in its use of various kinds of noodles the most notable of which are kluski as well as cereals such as kasha (from the Polish word kasza). Generally speaking, Polish cuisine is hearty and uses a lot of cream and eggs. The traditional dishes are often demanding in preparation. Many Poles allow themselves a generous amount of time to serve and enjoy their festive meals, especially Christmas eve dinner (Wigilia) or Easter breakfast which could take a number of days to prepare in their entirety.
The Polish national dishes are bigos; pierogi; kielbasa; kotlet schabowy (type of breaded cutlet); gołąbki (type of cabbage roll); zrazy (type of roulade); roast (Polish: pieczeń); sour cucumber soup (Polish: zupa ogórkowa); mushroom soup, (Polish: zupa grzybowa) (quite different from the North American cream of mushroom); tomato soup (Polish: zupa pomidorowa); rosół (variety of meat broth); żurek (sour rye soup); flaki (variety of tripe soup); and barszcz among others.
