For about 300 years, Świerklaniec was the seat of the Protestant line of one of the grandest families in Silesia- Counts of Henckel von Donnersmarck. In the second half of the nineteenth century, their seat became a magnificent palace called the "Little Versailles", which was destroyed after WW2. Today, in the Park of Świerklaniec, a neo-Gothic church and an adjacent ancestral mausoleum have been preserved. Count Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck, one of the last owners of the estate, was, inter alia, buried here.
Świerklaniec Park is one of the pearls,
which was passed to posterity by the
Henckel von Donnersmarck family. The
park was once a beautiful area
surrounding the existing palace, called
"Little Versailles" (burned in 1945). The
154-hectare park was established in the
English style. One can enjoy more than
century-old oaks, chestnuts, maples and
yews, and numerous ponds are a haven
for anglers. Art lovers can admire original
sculptures by French artist, Emmanuel
The Bachelor's Little Palace (also known as the
Bachelor’s House) is one of the buildings,
which had been erected in Świerklaniec by the
powerful Henckel von Donnersmarck family.
Unfortunately, it was not so lucky as the main
palace, called "Little Versailles". The neoBaroque Bachelor’s House was at the
beginning of the twentieth century. On the
façade of the building there is the Latin
inscriptions, explaining the reasons for its
construction: “Memento vivere - Remember to
life!” Today, it houses a hotel and a restaurant.
The first palace in Nakło Śląskie not far from Tarnowskie Góry was built by Hugo von Donnersmarck of the Bytom-Siemianowice lineage of this wealthy, Catholic family in 1856. The form of the present-day neo-Gothic residence results from the renovation carried out by Lazarus IV von Donnermarck in 1890s. The palace houses the Centrum Kultury Śląskiej (Silesian Culture Center) which presents the historical exhibition. The park with surrounding outbuildings is also worth seeing.
Apart from the summer palace of the
Donnersmarcks of the Nakło and Siemianowice
line, we can find an interesting church of the
Sacred Heart of Jesus and the adjacent mausoleum
of the Donnersmarck family. They also founded
here a nursing home run by the Sisters of Mercy of
St Borromeo. The church is a unique, brick
building, built in the late nineteenth century in the
neo-Romanesque style with some Byzantine
The Nakło-Chechło Lake is a reservoir of water, which
since the 70s of the last century has been very popular -
both among Silesian water sports fans and lovers of lazy
sunbathing. The reservoir was created by flooding the
borrow pit of filling sand. The reservoir distinguishes
itself with first class water purity. One way to get to the
beach and leisure centers is to go in an Upper Silesian
Narrow Gauge Railway carriage.
