Świętoszówka may be one of the oldest villages in Cieszyn Silesia. It was probably first mentioned in 1223 as Suenschiezi, in a document of Bishop of Wrocław issued for Norbertine Sisters in Rybnik among villages paying them tithe.[1][2] It belonged then to the Duchy of Opole and Racibórz and Castellany of Cieszyn, which was in 1290 formed into the Duchy of Teschen.

There is a Catholic Holy Spirit Church and also a Lutheran church in the village.
