For some time, you have been able to feel in Żory as if you were in the Wild West, because the western-like theme park „Twinpigs" was created in the town. It is a unique place in the province of Silesia, embedded in a wild west atmosphere. It's not just a cowboy town, but first of all, a family amusement park with many attractions provided for the broad audience. This is the place where favorable conditions are created for leisure activities and fun throughout the year.
One of the most popular places of recreation for residents of the historic town of Żory is the Piaskownia Park. It extends north from the city center, in the district of Kleszczówka. In the beautiful forest there is the Centre of Ecological Education, whose one part is an educational trail dedicated natural habitats. A collection of rocks and minerals has been amassed and a fitness trail laid out as well.
The old Catholic cemetery in Żory is located in the vicinity of the parish church of Saints Philip and James. For centuries, the deceased were buried beneath the church walls, and only in the first half of the nineteenth century, the cemetery was moved – although not far away, but outside the town fortifications. On the cemetery, there are old gravestones with German and Polish inscriptions, as well as a stone conciliation cross, which was moved here from Rybnik Street.
Żory became a town thanks to the decision of Duke Ladislaus of Opole and Racibórz in 1272. Soon, the characteristic medieval urban layout was formed. It had spindle-shaped walls within which there was a rectangular square with a town hall and a nearby parish church. On opposite sides of the town, there were gateways leading to Kraków and Cieszyn. Traces of the traditional layout of the town have been preserved to this day.
The church of the Holy Apostles Philip and James in Żory is a special symbol of the spiritual life of the town. The building has a remarkable history of the building. It often fell victim to disasters and was rebuilt. The church was destroyed by fires and it was struck by lightning. Its ceiling and tower fell down. The church was also destroyed during the last war. In the shrine, which suffered so much from disasters, special veneration surrounds the benevolent image of Our Lady of Mercy, known as Our Lady of Żory.
