The Palace in Kochanowice

The village of Kochanowice, which is the seat of the commune, lies in the district of Lubliniec, in the so-called White Silesia. A road from Częstochowa to Lubliniec runs through the village. There is a palace built at the beginning of the nineteenth century. It originally belonged to the family of von Aulock. In the interwar period, after the land subdivision by the District Land Office, it became the seat of the local school. It has served this purpose to this day.

Sadów, also called Sodowje in the Silesian language and Sodow in German, is located in commune of Koszęcin, in the district of Lubliniec. The local brick church of Saint Joseph, dating from the early fourteenth century, is one of the oldest in Silesia. Next toit, there is a wooden bell tower, built in the seventeenth century. Because of this monument the village lies on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
In the commune of Kochanowice, within the Upper Liswarta Forests Landscape Park, there are two natural sites worth seeing. One is the ecological site “Brzoza”, of which the major part is a pond of the same name. The other lies close to the natural attraction that is the place where the Rhododendron catawbiense grows. Both of these sites can be seen while hiking along a sevenkilometer-long natural path.
In Wierzbie, an old village located near the district capital of Lubliniec, there is an imposing palace, which until recently housed a nursing home, and now is a private property. The first residence here was probably built in the seventeenth century, and the current shape is the result of numerous reconstructions of the following centuries. Above all, the Baroque main portal and the polygonal tower protruding from the roof merit tourists’ attention.
The palace in Kochcice not far from Lubliniec was built in the first decade of the last century by Count Ludwig Karl von Ballestrem, the owner of 3,300 acres of the local estate. The splendid three-storey building was erected in the neo-Baroque style in the center of a large park. Since the 1960s the palace has been used by the Voivodeship Rehabilitation Centre. The park also includes a historic homestead.
The Jewish cemetery in Cieszowa near Koszęcin is one of the oldest in Silesia. Tradition says that the presence of Jews in the village dates back to the late Middle Ages. We know that from the mid-eighteenth century to the beginning of the last century, there was a fine, wooden synagogue in Cieszowa. Unfortunately, it was demolished. On the cemetery, located near the village, there are graves from the eighteenth and later centuries. The old trees in the graveyard were blown down by a hurricane in August 2008.
