The church of Saint Anne in Krzyżanowice, a large village in the district of Racibórz, was built in the second half of the eighteenth century. It was erected on the site of an older, most likely wooden church. The building was constructed in the late Baroque style, but the tower has some characteristics of the Gothic and Renaissance styles. Above the portal there is a cartouche with the coat of arms of the long-term owners of Krzyżanowice, the Lichnowsky family, who founded the altar in the church.
The mansion in Krzyżanowice was built at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but the current, neo-Gothic form was given to it during the nineteenth-century reconstruction. The palace was built on a rectangular plan, and its corners are decorated with distinctive, octagonal towers. The south-east tower houses a chapel. The palace hosted prominent persons in the past, including Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Liszt.
