Żywiec
The Żywiec Archducal Brewery is one of the most famous and successful producers of beer in Poland. The history of the plant began in the mid-nineteenth century, when the decision was taken by Archduke Albrecht Friedrich Habsburg, the then owner of Żywiec to build a brewery. Many of the original brewery buildings have been preserved to this day. They were designed by Karol Pietschka. The Żywiec Brewery Museum astounds with modern solutions, where we will learn the history of the plant and the process of beer production.

One of the monuments of the Jewish community once living in Zabłocie, a district of Żywiec is an old nineteenth-century cemetery. Among about 500 tombstones (stelae), there are some true masterpieces of stonework. In the early twentieth century the local Jewish community numbered about 1,800 people, and Zabłocie became a little Jewish town with its own synagogue, a school and a number of industrial plants, including the famous paper mill "Solali".

The Żywiec railway station was built in 1878. Within a few years, the city became an important hub along the Carpathian Transversal Railway, connecting Čadca (now Slovakia) with Stanisławów and Husiatyń (now Ukraine). The line, with a length of 800 km, ran through Zwardoń, Żywiec, and then through Sucha Beskidzka, Nowy Sącz, Krosno, Sambor, Drohobycz, and Stryj. It was once of great economic importance. Currently, trains run along a part of the line.

The memorial commemorating the Battle of Grunwald was erected in 1910 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the great victory. The monument was destroyed by the Germans in 1939. The new eagle cast in bronze in the late 80s of the twentieth century and the obelisk were renovated at the beginning of this century. The monument was unveiled 2005. On this occasion, the residents paid homage to the heroes of our modern history, the so-called cursed soldiers, who had died in the land of Żywiec.

The palace of the Habsburgs in Żywiec, also called the New Castle, now houses the Forestry and Lumber Technology School Complex.

His son, Karol Stefan, who decided to settle here permanently, initiated the Żywiec line of the Habsburgs. The Żywiec Habsburgs went down very positively in Polish history - also fighting the white and red flag.
