Frysztat Castle

Empire palace in Frysztat (Karwina, Czech Republic) former was a wooden Gothic castle founded by the Piast princes of nearby Cieszyn. Frysztat became the second residence of the dynasty after Cieszyn itself. In 1792 Frysztat was bought by the Count of Larisch-Mönnich. The palace was to remain in their hands until 1945. The Frysztat castle was a fine example of the pure Empire style. In front of the main building was built an ornamental park. In 1997 the object was renovated and opened to the public.

Kaczyce
The Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in Kaczyce is an interesting wooden building, originally built in Ruptawa before 1620. It was moved to its current location in the 70s of the twentieth century. Lying in the center of the village, the church is thickly surrounded by trees, and somewhat obscured by the buildings of the nearby houses. It is situated on the Pszczyna loop of the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
The Olza is the most important river of Cieszyn Silesia. A magic link of the both parts of the Euroregion Cieszyn Silesia divided by the state border today. The initial course of the river (a few kilometers) flows through the Polish territory, and the last kilometers before it meets the Oder, form the Polish-Czech border. Kayaking and rafting are possible in the lower reaches - from Czech Dietmarowice near Karwiny to the village of Olza. Portage and dangerous weirs cause that the river in this section should "tamed" only by experienced canoeists.
Zebrzydowice
The parish in Zebrzydowice is now part of the deanery of Strumień of the Bielsko-Żywiec diocese. It was already mentioned in 1335 in the list of Peter’s pence, although it is a bit older. The village itself was founded at the end of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. At that time, two wooden shrines were erected: the Zebrzydowice church, which soon became a parish church, and the church in nearby Marklowice, which for a long time was a branch church.
Zebrzydowice
The Zebrzydowice Palace is a building of neat, compact shape, which received its present form as a result of the reconstruction carried out in the eighteenth century. Originally, it was a defensive structure, which was built in medieval times. It had probably the character of a Gothic castle. The residences, which over the centuries completely changed its form, suffered greatly in the postwar period. Today, it houses the seat of the commune office and several other institutions.
Zebrzydowice
The commune of Zebrzydowice located in picturesque Cieszyn Silesia is increasingly relying on weekend tourism. Attractive leisure centers in Kończyce Małe and Zebrzydowice are to attract tourists here. In summer, in the capital of the commune, you can find relaxation on the large pond “Młyńszczok” with an open-air swimming bath, a water equipment rental shop and a beach. Walking and Cycling trails run in the vicinity and there are snack bars and entertainment facilities.
Kończyce Małe
The castle in Kończyce Małe, a village on the Polish-Czech border, is sometimes called Cieszyn Wawel Castle. This is due to the arcades in the inner courtyard. This Renaissance building was erected by the members of the Czel family in the sixteenth century. It later belonged to the families of the Pełk and Folwarczny. Today, the castle houses numerous local associations, the Regional Chamber and an elegant hotel and restaurant.
