"Forest churches" in Cieszyn Silesia are memorials to the times of persecution the local Protestants in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

The Protestants from Bielsko gathered at the stone altar in Mikuszowice Śląskie. You will find the place while hiking along the Red Trail from Bielskie Błonia Blonia Bystra and beyond to Klimczok.
Perhaps, he was the best at painting snowy landscapes. Whom are we talking about? About Julian Fałat, an unsurpassed Polish watercolor painter, a master of painting impression. At the beginning of the last century, he permanently bound his life to Bystra near Bielsko-Biała, where he built a villa called ‘Fałatówka”, and where he was buried in the village cemetery. This interesting museum, which is a branch of the Bielsko-Biała Museum, cultivates the memory of the painter.

"Gypsy Forest ", a park area located in the south of Bielsko-Biala, is a literal translation of the German name "Zigeunerwald". However, the name is a distorted form of "Ziegenwald" which means "Goat Forest". In the communist times, this area was called the People's Park. From the second half of the nineteenth century up to World War Two Gypsy Forest was a spa and a residential district. While walking through Gypsy Forest you can see a wide variety of architectural styles and feel an atmosphere of the bygone era.
