The Building of the District Office in Pszczyna

After the conquest by Prussia, Silesia was divided into districts. A number of the royal officials appeared in towns and cities, which at the same time meant that some privileges of the local lords were cancelled. Landrats - Prussian governors appointed by the king – took over power in the districts. The present building of the District Office was erected not before the 80s of the nineteenth century. Previously, the District Office occupied successively two other buildings.

One of the attractions of the Historic Park of Pszczyna is the Open-Air Museum - „Croft of the Region of Pszczyna” („Zagroda Wsi Pszczyńskiej”). The museum displays wooden constructions which are exemplary of the timber architecture of the region. Most of them come from the nineteenth century. The open air museum was established in 1975 and in the following years it was gradually being expanded. Currently, there are a dozen objects here. In addition to sightseeing, we can also taste regional dishes in the inn, which is housed in the historic mill. The open air museum is located on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.

The building of the District Court in Pszczyna, which stands at k. bp. Bogedaina St, to the south of the Market Square, belongs to the most impressive, historic edifices in the town. It was erected  for the royal court at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the style which refers to the Dutch Renaissance . In the vicinity of the couthouse there is an austere building of an old prison, which today houses a hotel of the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society.

"Piastowska Street is the main promenade in Pszczyna. It is mostly lined with buildings from the nineteenth and twentieth century. However, the most conspicuous house is a small tenement, roofed with shingles. It was built in the eighteenth century and now houses an extraordinary institution – the Wojciech Korfanty Museum of the Silesian Press. It collects Silesian prints, antique printing machinery and equipment. The museum recreates Wojciech Korfanty’s editorial office. On the first floor, “the Chamber of Telemann” can be found."

The Water Tower in Kilińskiego Street in Pless is certainly the most modern and most spectacular monument in the town. The modernized construction looks particularly interesting, when illuminated at night. It was built between 1927 and 1928 as part of the municipal water supply, and its reinforced concrete structure was made by the famous company of the brothers Gryczów. In 2010, a restaurant in the steampunk style was opened in the tower. It is a real find for fans of science fiction.
