The Moving Crib of the folk artist, Jan Wewiór,is called "Bethlehem under the thatch". Apart from the ruins of the fourteenth-century castle, it is another unique attraction of Olsztyn near Częstochowa. There are few such cribs in Poland! There are more than 800 pieces, of which nearly 350 are moving, and the work is still going on over the crib! The crib is exhibited in the nineteenthcentury cottage, lying on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
Olsztyn
The present church of Saint John the Baptist in Olsztyn was built between 1722 and 1729. It is not the first on this site, but the second, or even the third. Before the today’s brick church was constructed, there had been a shrine made of wood, which burned down in the great fire of the village, in 1719. That building probably was from either 1529, or from 1600. (If it had been erected in 1600, it would have stood on the site of the church from 1529).

The ruins of the castle in Olsztyn near Częstochowa are among the best-known strongholds of the Polish Jura. A cylindrical, 35- meter tall tower catches the eye from afar. It was built of white limestone, and overbuilt with brown bricks, like a mast of the ship floating in the rough sea. Indeed, the castle witnessed many dramatic events, including the assassination of Maciek Borkowic. From the mid-seventeenth century on, it was falling into disrepair. Eventually, it became a tourist attraction, lying on the popular Eagles’ Nests Trail.

Gastronomy

Olsztyn
Olsztyn koło Częstochowy znany jest przede wszystkim z ruin potężnego niegdyś zamku – „orlego gniazda” z czasów Kazimierza Wielkiego. W tej jurajskiej miejscowości nie brakuje jednak może mniej okazałych, ale również zabytkowych budowli. Chociażby u północnych podnóży warowni pięknie prezentuje się drewniany, XVIII-wieczny spichlerz, przeniesiony do Olsztyna z miejscowości Borowno. Obecnie mieści się w nim elegancka restauracja.
Powstaliśmy 10 lat temu, aby spełnić nasze marzenia. Te związane z muzyką, końmi, jurą krakowsko – częstochowską i restauracją… Trochę też marzenia o tym, aby mieć coś swojego i pracować dla tego dzieła. Jeśli udało nam się przy okazji sprawić komuś przyjemność, to niezmiernie nam miło. Organizujemy koncerty, recitale, wernisaże, spotkania integracyjne. Latem prowadzimy obozy konne dla dzieci i młodzieży urozmaicone zajęciami językowymi, żeglarskimi, plastycznymi, aktorskimi. Staramy się promować i propagować kulturę, rekreację, sport, turystykę – szczególnie turystykę jeździecką. Co nas napędza ? Widok koni galopujących pod Sokolimi Górami. Zapraszamy ! Zobaczcie je z nami.
