Tymawa is a picturesquely located village, among beautiful Vistula hills. In the written sources, it appears for the first time in 1224 as Thymaua, as Tymawa in 1583. This is probably the original Slavic water name referring to a river or a stream. The old land of Tymawa takes it name from the village, which includes the area on the right side of Wierzyca, extending towards today’s Tuchola Forests.
The only convention on the Polish soil has been set here, of the mysterious Cistercian Order from the Spanish Calatrava. The monks, apart from the missionary activity, have also farmed grapes. Their garden with the wine mountain has probably been located in the place of the present parish church.
The history of the original temple dates back to the XIII century. Another one, with the backbone structure filled with bricks, is dates back to the XVI century. The present parish church was built in the XVII century. It was consecrated in 1665 by the suffrage bishop of Wloclawek, Jacek Swięcicki. The equipment, altars, feretories and sculptures come from the time of the late Renaissance and Baroque.
Alfons Schulz (1872–1940) was born in Tymawa – a priest, social activist, founder of many organisations, RP senator, he was martyred to death in the camp of Stutthof.
In the village there is a lake with the developed swimming pool.
