The Weaver's House in Bielsko-Biała

The Weaver's House is a branch of the Bielsko Biała Museum, which, from its beginnings, that is since the fifteenth century, was inhabited by the Bielsko clothiers. The house, partially reconstructed, comes from the eighteenth century and is one of the few examples of this type of architecture, which, in the case of this city, was destroyed in fires. The property is located on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.

They bewitched the imaginations of millions of Poles. They entertained and taught us. Bolek and Lolek, Reksio, Wawel Dragon, animal hunter Pampalini, Captain Clipper, whether in black and white, or in color - they embellished the gray reality of the communist era. It's all thanks to the artists of the Animated Film Studio in Bielsko-Biala. Since its establishment in 1947 until now they have produced over 1000 cartoons both for children and for adults. Anyone can take a close look how it is being done. The studio is open to the public.
Zion with the Temple in Jerusalem built by King Solomon is a holy place. But Zion also means the entire city of Jerusalem and is inhabitants are called the Children of Zion or God’s Chosen. Zion in Bielsko-Biala Bielsko is the centre of the protestant community. The congregation is concentrated in the close vicinity of Martin Luther Square - at the Church of the Redeemer and the statue of the great reformer, in schools and in the Augustana Publishing House.
The Saint Nicholas' Cathedral with its distinctive belltower resembling Italian campanile dominates over Bielsko-Biała. Despite the fact that its origins date back to the 15th century, it is difficult to find any Gothic traces in its architecture. It is due to the renovation from the beginning of the last century. It gave the neo-Romanesque appearance to the building. Inside the church we can encounter many styles. The church has an interesting history. It was several times burnt down by fires and looted by soldiers. In  1992, the church became the cathedral of the newly created diocese of Bielsko and Żywiec.
The Private Wladyslaw Reymont Museum of Literature in Bielsko-Biala is one of the most unusual places in the city as well as in Poland. It possesses a unique atmosphere. The museum was founded and has been managed for years by Tadeusz Modrzejewski, a man of great passion, who is an editor, graphic artist and a lover of literature, especially the works by Władysław Reymont. In 1989, he created the museum at 1 Pankiewicz Street in the Old Town.
The Old Town of Bielsko is the oldest part of the downtown. It is located on Town Hill. It has preserved a medieval urban layout. Beside old arcaded town houses there are the castle of the Sułkowski Dukes and the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas within the Old Town. This part of the city, which was originally surrounded with defence walls, is currently limited by Chrobry Square (Plac Chrobrego) and Orkana, Waryńskiego, Zamkowa, Św. Trójcy Streets.
The old Protestant cemetery in Bielsko-Biala is closed today. The necropolis is located at Andrzeja Frycza-Modrzewskiego Street, which is the so-called Bielsko Zion. Many distinguished citizens of Bielsko are buried here, including the mayors - Karol Ferdynand Sennewaldt, and Moritz Scholz or Henryk Hofmann, and pastors - Józef Schimko, Karl Samuel Schneider or Teodor Hasse, as well as industrialists - Gustav Förster, Herman Schneider, Gustav Josephy and Theodor Sixt.

W samym sercu starego Bielska, nieopodal rynku, naprzeciw zabytkowego Domu Tkaczy Bielskich „przycupnęła” nasza restauracja, w której możecie spróbować głównie polskiej tradycyjnej kuchni ale w nowoczesnym, często niespotykanym wydaniu i aranżacji, cieszącym oko :)
Inspired the creation of the premises was the magic of cinema and television and the proximity of Animated Film Studio.
