Polonezkoy was established after the invasion of Poland by its neighbors Austria, Russia and Prussia in 1775.

There were only four inhabitants at the town on the 18th of February 1842, and years later the population increased to hundreds. They took the Turkish citizenship in 1938. Years later, Polonezkoy became a popular holiday town.
