Pławniowickie Lake is well known to all lovers of
relaxing on the water, especially to the inhabitants of
the western part of the Upper Silesian Agglomeration.
The reservoir was created in 1970 by flooding the
borrow pit of the backfilling sand mine. In the next few
years, leisure and sports centers with swimming
facilities have mushroomed around the lake. In the
vicinity of the reservoir there are hiking and biking
trails. We can also find here some interesting sights for
example such as the palace in Pławniowice.
The palace and park in Pławniowice, in the district of Gliwice, in the commune of Rudziniec, now serve as part of the Centre for Education and Formation of Gliwice
Diocese. It is easy to get there, because the center lies at the intersection of the A4 motorway and the national road No 40, between Gliwice and Strzelce Opolskie. The main part of the complex is a palace of the Ballestrem family, which was built in the years 1882-1885. It is surrounded by a small, historic park. In this park there are many interesting and exotic species of trees.
Next to the palace of the Ballestrems in Pławniowice
there is a slightly smaller building erected at the same
time. It features Eclectic architecture with strong neoGothic elements. This is called “Kavalier Haus”, which
means “Bachelor's House”. It built was by Franz
Ballestrem for his son, Leon. This building, which served
as his temporary lodgings, later became a luxurious
residence, designed for guests coming to Pławniowice.
In the village of Poniszowice, in the district of Gliwice, there is one of the monuments of the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province. It is the church of Saint of John the Baptist and Our Lady of Częstochowa. The history of the parish is quite long, and according to written sources, goes back to the twelfth century. The present church is the third turn on this site. It was founded at the end of the fifteenth century, and was rebuilt later and underwent minor renovations. Next to the shrine, there is a free-standing bell tower from the sixteenth century.
Bycina lies in the commune of Rudziniec, in the district
of Gliwice. The name of the village comes from grazing
bulls, and the first mention of it dates from 1263. At the
end of the seventeenth century, a magnificent late
baroque palace was built in Bycina. Thanks to its location
on a hill, the palace is visible from afar. Due to the war
and the communist times unfavorable to such
monuments, the palace is now much devastated.
For decades, bells, which toll in the shrines all
over the world, have been cast in Tarciszów
near Gliwice. The Felczyńkis, a well-known
Polish family of bell-founders, manufacture
bells here. The tradition of the bell foundry
dates back to 1808 and is associated with
Kalush, a town in Eastern Galicia, and in
Tarciszów to the time after World War II. One
of the bells recently cast here is "The Heart
of Łódź", which first sounded over Łódź in
