Situated in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship (since 1999), previously in Katowice Voivodeship (1975–1998), it is the capital of Olkusz County.. From 1941 to 1945, the occupying Germans renamed the region to Ilkenau.. Olkusz is called 'Silver Town" because of the large amount of silver that was found and mined here..The city is on the Baba river, with a major road reaching it from Warsaw and Kraków, making it the central city of the vicinity..Also, Olkusz is located on the main railroad line, which connects Upper Silesia and Zaglebie with Kielce..The origin of the name is the Phoenician El-Khuds meaning to chisel..Francesco Nullo (1 March 1826 – 5 May 1863) was an Italian patriot, military officer and merchant, and a close friend and confidant of Giuseppe Garibaldi..
