Zebrzydowice
The Zebrzydowice Palace is a building of neat, compact shape, which received its present form as a result of the reconstruction carried out in the eighteenth century. Originally, it was a defensive structure, which was built in medieval times. It had probably the character of a Gothic castle. The residences, which over the centuries completely changed its form, suffered greatly in the postwar period. Today, it houses the seat of the commune office and several other institutions.
Zebrzydowice
The parish in Zebrzydowice is now part of the deanery of Strumień of the Bielsko-Żywiec diocese. It was already mentioned in 1335 in the list of Peter’s pence, although it is a bit older. The village itself was founded at the end of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. At that time, two wooden shrines were erected: the Zebrzydowice church, which soon became a parish church, and the church in nearby Marklowice, which for a long time was a branch church.
Kończyce Małe
The Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Kończyce Małe was built in the first half of the eighteenth century. It was rebuilt and modernized after the war. Although the building lacks any definite style, some elements refer to Baroque and Classicism. Inside the church one can find a beautiful, miraculous image of the Madonna and Child, which is a unique representation of Mary with a dandelion flower in her hand.
Kończyce Małe
The castle in Kończyce Małe, a village on the Polish-Czech border, is sometimes called Cieszyn Wawel Castle. This is due to the arcades in the inner courtyard. This Renaissance building was erected by the members of the Czel family in the sixteenth century. It later belonged to the families of the Pełk and Folwarczny. Today, the castle houses numerous local associations, the Regional Chamber and an elegant hotel and restaurant.
Pielgrzymowice
The church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria in Pielgrzymowice was built in the second half of the seventeenth century. It is made of wood, covered with shingles. The one-nave church with a tower is topped with a tent roof. The interior is mostly in the Baroque style. We can find here images and figures from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The polychromy on the ceiling and the stained glass windows were designed by Paweł Steller, a known Silesian artist.
