‘The traditional craft trail’ corresponds to the existing and partly marked out trail named the same way (for more information see the website: www.tradycyjniepiekne.pl). Following the trail we find unique places in the Cieszyn Silesia where native artists still make unusual articles using traditional techniques. The product consisits of three car trips each day long. The character of two of them is cross-border. The programmes contain the approximate length of the trail stretches and the duration of sightseeing as well as the map with marked trips’ routes and some useful information. Both programmes and a way of touring (driving tourism) all mentioned attractions make the offer to spend your leisure time. There are other ways of visiting places described in the programmes so we can adjust each programme to our needs and choose the way we want to visit recommended interesting places. For example we can travel by bike along stretches of the Euroregional Cycling Loop no 24 C and local subroutes; on foot - walking along tourist and hiking trails in the district or by coach/bus - during coach/bus trips in the mentioned places.

Cieszyn
Cieszyn Silesia is a stronghold of Protestantism on Polish soil. Already in the first half of the 16th century, still during Martin Luther’s work, Protestantism played a significant role in this part of Silesia. Today, the faithful of the Lutheran Church of the Diocese of Cieszyn account for about half of all the Polish Lutherans. The rich history of Lutheranism is presented at the Museum of Protestantism, of which collections are housed in the church of Jesus in Cieszyn.
Cieszyn
The Church of Jesus in Cieszyn is the largest Protestant church in Poland. Its huge silhouette dominates the landscape of the city. The construction of the church by the Protestants, who so far had been persecuted, was made possible by the Altranstädter convention f 1707. Thanks to the convention, the Austrian Emperor Joseph I authorized the erection of the six so-called “mercy churches”. From the outside, the church was built in the Austrian Baroque style, and it resembles the Catholic churches, but the interior reflects the spirit of the Reformed faith.

The palace of the Counts of Larisch in Cieszyn was erected after the big fire of the city in 1789. The Larisches had owned, for over three decades, a house situated at the then Konwiktowa Street, which in the course of time, it was not enough for them. The new residence was built on the initiative of Count Johann Joseph Anton von Mönnich Larisch. He held numerous positions in the Grand Duchy of Cieszyn, as well as in the court of Vienna. Today, the palace is home to the Museum of Cieszyn Silesia.

The history of the Church of the Holy Cross in Cieszyn, which is located at the intersection of Szersznika and Szeroka Streets, is connected with the arrival of the Jesuit Order in the city, in 1670. The Jesuits were given four houses and a chapel. The chapel was converted into a church in 1707. In 1773, the Jesuits were expelled from the Austrian empire. Currently, the church belongs to the Franciscans, who offer ministry to prisoners and the sick. They also look after the homeless
Cieszyn
In addition to many individual, historical buildings of the city, the urban layout of Cieszyn has entered in the register of monuments. The historic layout was formed over the centuries, from the early Middle Ages until the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its main elements consist of a market square and a square called the Old Market. The most valuable building area representing different architectural styles is located around the above and some other squares (Dominican, Theatre, and Józef Londzina).
