Brenna
The Catholic parish of Saint John the Baptist in Brenna now covers most of the tourist resort. Previously, this area belonged to the parish in Grodziec, then - since the seventeenth century - to the parish in Górki Wielkie. Interestingly, the policy pursued by the Austrian Emperor Joseph II contributed to the creation of a separate parish in Brenna in 1784. The church of Saint John the Baptist was built shortly thereafter and was consecrated in 1796.
Brenna
There are a number of wooden houses from the 18th to 20th centuries in various places of Brenna. The traditional, typical residential buildings of this area are log cabins on stone foundations. The oldest were once chimneyless huts.
Szczyrk
The Shrine of Our Lady of Szczyrk is situated at an altitude of 670 meters above sea level , in the picturesque hills belonging to the massif of Klimczok. The tradition relates that at the end of the nineteenth century apparitions of Mother of God were to happen here. The construction of the church started in 1912. It was completed after the First World War. In addition to the sanctuary, which is a pilgrimage destination, there is a blue hiking trail which runs from Szczyrk to Klimczok.
Brenna
Brenna as a mountain resort became popular in the interwar years of the twentieth century. The village was visited by tourists mainly from Silesia. In 1924, Bruno Konczakowski from Cieszyn built a hunting manor in the valley of the Głębiec brook. The manor made of alpine stone pine and larch was built in a Tyrolean style. The interior reflects the owner’s hunting interests. The Chapel of St. Hubert stands in the vicinity of the manor.
