History

Since the Middle Ages the area was part of Poland and the Duchy of Pomerania following Poland's fragmentation. There is a memorial to Duke Barnim II nearby, on the German side of the border, in the place where he was probably assassinated in 1295. During the Thirty Years' War, the duchy was dissolved and the area fell to Sweden. From 1815 it was part of Prussia and from 1871 also Germany, within which it was known as Entepöl and was administratively located in the Province of Pomerania. Following the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II in 1945 the area became again part of Poland, however, the settlement was initially occupied by the Soviets until October 1945. Administratively it was part of the Szczecin Voivodeship, since 1999 the West Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The border was opened to free travel in 2008, after Poland joined the Schengen Agreement.

The name of the settlement comes from the Old Polish male name Dobiesław.
