Pszów
The Pszów Calvary is located a short distance from the town center. It is a complex consisting of a neo-Baroque church and fourteen chapels, which depict through sculptural compositions the stations of the Way of the Cross. The Pszów Calvary lies in a picturesque, hilly terrain conducive to an atmosphere of silence and prayer. Along with the nearby sanctuary in Pszów, it is one of the popular pilgrimage destinations in Silesia.
Rydułtowy
Rydultowy is one of the many towns in Upper Silesia whose history over the last 200 years has been inextricably connected with coal mining. The Coal Mine “Rydultowy” still operates in the town. Historic mine buildings including that of the scales are still present in its landscape. The lesser-known buildings are remnants of the workers’ colony “Karol”, which now consists of a few characteristic multi-family brick houses and adjacent small outbuildings.
Rydułtowy
The origins of the first church of Saint George in Rydułtowy are not explained thoroughly. It is known, however, that the present church is the fourth successive building erected on the same site, and that the local parish has existed here, at least since 1501. The large, neo-Gothic building of the present church dates from the late nineteenth century. The peculiar concillation crosses with two cross arms, which is the only one of its kind in the Poland, stands next to the church.
Rydułtowy
In Rydułtowy, a mining town situated between Rybnik and Wodzisław Śląski, there is the railroad tunnel which is oldest in Poland and the longest in Silesia, stretching from the housing estate of Orłowiec to the fields to the east of Czernica. The tunnel was built at the end of the 1850s for the railroad line connecting Racibórz with Rybnik and further with Katowice. It is 724 meters long. On the first days of WW2, Polish sappers blew it up. It was rebuilt in 1942.
