The Old Wood Tar Factory in Kobiór

The village of Kobiór is surrounded by the Pszczyna Forest, which for centuries was a source of livelihood for the local villagers. In 2003, a regional museum was opened here. It is housed in a nineteenth-century, nicely decorated, wooden, building - the so-called Smolarnia (Wood Tar Factory). Its residents manufactured wood tar here. Currently, there are two ethnographic exhibitions presenting mainly the equipment collected by the residents of Kobiór.

Suszec
"Babczyna Dolina" is a wooded nature reserve, located in the communes of Suszec and Kobiór. It covers an area of over 76 hectares. It is a relatively young protected area. It was created in 2002 pursuant to the regulation of the Silesian voivode. The purpose of the reserve is to protect a moist reed grass area with rare species of bryophytes. In addition, it is also a refuge for several species of reptiles.
Kobiór
The Hochbergs were once one of the wealthiest families in Silesia. Their lands stretched from the Sudetenland to Pszczyna. They were equal to kings, as evidenced by their major ancestral seat in Książ near Wałbrzych and the palace in Pszczyna. In Promnice, between Tychy and Kobiór, they built a hunting palace preserved to this day. It was erected in 1868. The palace fascinates by English neo-Gothic elegance, completed with some Swiss architectural elements. Currently, it houses the luxury Noma Residence Promnice Hotel.
Tychy
Paprocańskie Lake (also called Lake Paprocany) in Tychy is a water reservoir with a first-class water quality, which is located within the city boundaries. Local residents and tourists take delight in ravishing flora and fauna with a number of protected species (such as mute swan and heron). Here, you can relax wonderfully. Everyone will find something for everyone, from the beaches, water sport equipment rental shops, biking and hiking trails to fishing competitions and concerts.
Tychy
Paprocany is a southern district of Tychy. It is a popular place of recreation and relaxation. The attraction of this part of the city is the picturesque Paprocany Lake and extensive wooded areas. Hardly anyone remembers that, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, heavy industry developed here. An ironworks was founded by the Duke of Pless in 1703. There are a few brick buildings of the plant, which was closed in 1878, and…an extensive lake.
Tychy
The church of the Holy Spirit in Tychy Żwaków aroused emotions already during construction. At the end of the seventies of the last century its unusual form of a tent made some angry, while others admired it. Today, the church is regarded as one of the most interesting built during the communist era. Its designer, Stanisław Niemczyk has received numerous awards and honors. He has also won international fame. The interior houses the paintings by master Jerzy Nowosielski himself.
