In Bujaków, which until recently was an independent village, and now is a district of Mikołów, there is the Shrine of Our Lady, Protector of Environment. In the church of Saint Nicholas, which was erected more than 500 years ago, they venerate the Mother of God in the form of a Gothic figure, brought here from the Bujaków shrine on the so-called Swedish grave. At the church there is a botanical garden, founded by Fr. Jerzy Kemp.
The Marian shrine is located in Bujaków in the deanery of Mikołów. It is also a place where we can see a botanical parish garden. Apart from the garden, which was founded in the 70s of the twentieth century, there are a few old shrines, a seventeenth-century well and monuments related to beekeeping, which form a small open-air museum. The place is popular among parishioners, pilgrims and tourists, offering an opportunity for calm and prayer.
The Silesian Botanical Garden in Mikołów Mokre is one of the largest and most modern in Silesia. Its main aim is to protect the biodiversity of the region, to conduct educational activities targeted at different age groups and to stimulate pro-environmental attitudes in society. The Botanical Garden is also a great place for recreation and relaxation. It also does some scientific research.
In the past, Paniowy was a village, mentioned already in 1282. It is now part of the town of Mikołów. Amid the local landscapes combining arable land and industrial centers dotted with shafts and chimneys, it is worth looking inside the eighteenth-century wooden church of Saints Peter and Paul. This sanctuary, with a fine silhouette of three Baroque domes, is on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
Ornontowice is a communal village situated in the
district of Mikołów. The settlement was already
mentioned under the name of Renoltowitz at the
beginning of the fourteenth century. In the first

coal mine “Leopold” was built in Ornontowice.
The next century brought further industrialization.
A blast furnace and a factory were built, and in

Ornontowice one can find a nineteenth-century
palace of the Hegenscheid family.
