In Zielona, a picturesque district of Kaleta, there is quite a ruined hunting palace. This, now forgotten, but once a building bustling with life, was erected in 1861 by Count Guido Henckl von Donnersmarck, who was also the owner of the pulp and paper factory in Kalety. In these woods there was a game park, in which deer, fallow deer and wild boar were reared.
The Bog ‘Bruch” near Pyrzowice is one of many protected areas of the Natura 2000 network in the Silesian voivodeship. It is located in the south-east part of the Lubliniec Forests. The protected area is predominantly covered with a coniferous forest, but in terms of wildlife, the most precious are peat bogs with valuable protected plants, including numerous common sundews.
Piasek, a small village near Woźniki, stands out from the surrounding area because of its history connected with the so-called Frederic’s settlement policy in the middle of the eighteenth century. An interesting monument comes from that time. This is the evangelical church standing at the main market square. The façade of the church is adorned with a characteristic tower. Inside, we can see, among others, a Rococo altar with a pulpit, cast iron stoves, and a plaque commemorating the soldiers - the residents of Piasek who died during the Napoleonic Wars.
Woźniki is a town located in the district of Lubliniec. Its main monument is the Church of St Valentine. It is a log cabin construction building with baroque furnishings. In the nineteenth century, Józef Lompa, a Silesian poet and preacher of Polish national consciousness, lived with his daughter in Woźnik, where he died. Lompa founded a public libraryin the town. He is buried in the cemetery at the Church of St. Valentine. There are also tombs of Silesian insurgents in this graveyard.
Miasteczko Śląskie
The wooden church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was built in Miasteczko Śląskie in the years 1666-1667. For many decades, it was a branch church of the parish in Żyglin. The building was erected in a log wall construction, with a shingle roof. A slender bell tower and arcades used as shelter for pilgrims, who encircle the church, are worth attention. There is a gate to the church premises located in a freestanding bell tower.
Miasteczko Śląskie
Miasteczko Śląskie boasts of the origins dating back to the sixteenth century, although one of its districts, Żyglin, is mentioned in medieval sources. In 1561, local miners managed to get town privileges from Georg Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg. The town center is a barely distinctive, spindle-shaped market square with a nineteenth-century town hall and two churches. Nearby, you will find a brick townhouses and one-storey bungalows typical for a small town.
