Jastrowie is one of the youngest towns of Wałeckie Lakeland. It was granted civic rights on 5th of May, 1602 confirmed by the king Sigismund III Vasa. Earlier, around 1560, the Pomeranians founded a village on the western bank of the river Oska, and a second village on its eastern bank a couple of years later. This double settlement marks the very beginnings of the future town. As of the 16th century, Jastrowie was a place where commercial activity and craftsmanship flourished.

In 1879, a railroad connecting Poznan and Kołobrzeg was built. In 1945, the town was a part of the line of fortifications referred to as the Pomeranian Wall. Today, the remains of shelters can still be found near the village of Nadarzyce. They are a significant tourist attraction.
