"Romantic Tower" in Wodzislaw Śląski, also known as the Knights' Tower, is relatively a young building as for its name. In no way does it go back as far as to the Middle Ages, but it is a monument from the second half of the nineteenth century, i.e. the period of a fashion for Historicism. It was built by Edward Brauns, then owner of Wodzisław, and also a dreamer and lover of history.

One of the landmarks of Wodzisław Śląski is the palace built by the Dietrichstein family. It was erected between 1742 and 1745. It is probably the first Classicist building on Polish soil. Today, apart from the civil registry, it houses the Municipal Museum, whose collections present primarily the history of Wodzisław and the region from prehistoric times to the present day.
Horse -riding enthusiasts from Silesia can combine their passion with pleasure. The agritourism farm  “Stajnia na Górce”, which can be translated as "Stable on the Hill" in Marklowice offers a yearround service - from teaching how to several- days- long horse riding. A particular emphasis is placed on creating a specific relationship between horse and rider. The village surrounded by forests lies among picturesque hills of the Rybnik Upland, which additionally helps to achieve full relaxation.

In addition to individual and interesting historic buildings in Wodzislaw Śląski, the urban layout of the town itself is worthy of note. It is difficult to determine the exact date of the foundation of Wodzislaw Śląski, as it has not been preserved in any documents, even though it took place probably between 1246 and 1257. The central part of the urban layout of Wodzisław is of course the market square, which is actually one of the largest squares in Silesia.
