Świerklaniec
For about 300 years, Świerklaniec was the seat of the Protestant line of one of the grandest families in Silesia- Counts of Henckel von Donnersmarck. In the second half of the nineteenth century, their seat became a magnificent palace called the "Little Versailles", which was destroyed after WW2. Today, in the Park of Świerklaniec, a neo-Gothic church and an adjacent ancestral mausoleum have been preserved. Count Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck, one of the last owners of the estate, was, inter alia, buried here.
Świerklaniec
The Bachelor's Little Palace (also known as the Bachelor’s House) is one of the buildings, which had been erected in Świerklaniec by the powerful Henckel von Donnersmarck family. Unfortunately, it was not so lucky as the main palace, called "Little Versailles". The neoBaroque Bachelor’s House was at the beginning of the twentieth century. On the façade of the building there is the Latin inscriptions, explaining the reasons for its construction: “Memento vivere - Remember to life!” Today, it houses a hotel and a restaurant.
Nakło Śląskie
The first palace in Nakło Śląskie not far from Tarnowskie Góry was built by Hugo von Donnersmarck of the Bytom-Siemianowice lineage of this wealthy, Catholic family in 1856. The form of the present-day neo-Gothic residence results from the renovation carried out by Lazarus IV von Donnermarck in 1890s. The palace houses the Centrum Kultury Śląskiej (Silesian Culture Center) which presents the historical exhibition. The park with surrounding outbuildings is also worth seeing.
Nakło Śląskie
Apart from the summer palace of the Donnersmarcks of the Nakło and Siemianowice line, we can find an interesting church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the adjacent mausoleum of the Donnersmarck family. They also founded here a nursing home run by the Sisters of Mercy of St Borromeo. The church is a unique, brick building, built in the late nineteenth century in the neo-Romanesque style with some Byzantine elements.
Radzionków
Centrum Dokumentacji Deportacji Górnoślązaków do ZSRR w 1945 roku mieści się w budynku byłego dworca kolejowego w Radzionkowie. Placówka pełni różne funkcje w obszarze edukacji, kultury, historii, a także zachowywania dziedzictwa kulturowego. Stała ekspozycja przybliża historię deportacji i uświadamia zwiedzającym, że 1945 rok – czas końca wojny i wyzwolenia, dla wielu śląskich rodzin był początkiem gehenny związanej z masową wywózką na wschód. Wielu Górnoślązaków pozostało na radzieckiej ziemi na zawsze. Wystawa w interesujący sposób łączy ślady przeszłości w postaci eksponatów z nowoczesnymi rozwiązaniami multimedialnymi.
