Miasteczko Śląskie
The wooden church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was built in Miasteczko Śląskie in the years 1666-1667. For many decades, it was a branch church of the parish in Żyglin. The building was erected in a log wall construction, with a shingle roof. A slender bell tower and arcades used as shelter for pilgrims, who encircle the church, are worth attention. There is a gate to the church premises located in a freestanding bell tower.
Miasteczko Śląskie
Miasteczko Śląskie boasts of the origins dating back to the sixteenth century, although one of its districts, Żyglin, is mentioned in medieval sources. In 1561, local miners managed to get town privileges from Georg Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg. The town center is a barely distinctive, spindle-shaped market square with a nineteenth-century town hall and two churches. Nearby, you will find a brick townhouses and one-storey bungalows typical for a small town.
Nakło Śląskie
Apart from the summer palace of the Donnersmarcks of the Nakło and Siemianowice line, we can find an interesting church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the adjacent mausoleum of the Donnersmarck family. They also founded here a nursing home run by the Sisters of Mercy of St Borromeo. The church is a unique, brick building, built in the late nineteenth century in the neo-Romanesque style with some Byzantine elements.
Nakło Śląskie
The first palace in Nakło Śląskie not far from Tarnowskie Góry was built by Hugo von Donnersmarck of the Bytom-Siemianowice lineage of this wealthy, Catholic family in 1856. The form of the present-day neo-Gothic residence results from the renovation carried out by Lazarus IV von Donnermarck in 1890s. The palace houses the Centrum Kultury Śląskiej (Silesian Culture Center) which presents the historical exhibition. The park with surrounding outbuildings is also worth seeing.
Świerklaniec
For about 300 years, Świerklaniec was the seat of the Protestant line of one of the grandest families in Silesia- Counts of Henckel von Donnersmarck. In the second half of the nineteenth century, their seat became a magnificent palace called the "Little Versailles", which was destroyed after WW2. Today, in the Park of Świerklaniec, a neo-Gothic church and an adjacent ancestral mausoleum have been preserved. Count Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck, one of the last owners of the estate, was, inter alia, buried here.
