Smolnica
Smolnica, now lying in the district of Gliwice, in the commune of Sośnicowice, as its name suggests (Smoleń means “pitch” in Polish) was a village traditionally inhabited by charcoal and pitch burners. The first mention of the village dates back to the thirteenth century. In the second half of the fourteenth century, a parish was established in the village. We do not know when the first church was erected in Smolnica, or where it was located. The present church of Saint Bartholomew was founded as a Lutheran church at the beginning of the seventeenth century.
Sośnicowice
The parish in Sośnicowice, a former trading settlement, founded by Duke Władysław of Opole in the thirteenth century, is as old as the village itself. The present church of Saint James the Elder comes from the mid-fourteenth century, but it was renovated in the Baroque style in the seventeenth century. Later, in the late eighteenth century, it was rebuilt after a fire.
Sośnicowice
Sośnicowice, situated in the district of Gliwice, is one of the smallest towns in Silesia and in entire Poland. The origins of the settlement are not adequately explained, but it was probably founded in the thirteenth century. In the course of time, a gradually growing village evolved into a spatial layout that has survived to our days. Nineteenthcentury houses have survived around the centrally located market. There are also several other, much older monuments.
Sośnicowice
The palace of Sośnicowice is an impressive, late-Baroque mansion, built at initiative of Karl Joseph von Hoditza in the mid-eighteenth century. It was erected on the site of a medieval castle. Despite the devastation during the war in 1945, in the interiors of the building are preserved. The interior of the mansion, decorated in the Regency and early Rococo styles, has survived to this day. Today, the palace houses the Nursing Home "Ostoja". The building, which is located next to the picturesque park, is not open to the public.
Gliwice
One of the many interesting wooden churches of Silesia is located in Ostropa, a district of Gliwice. The church is situated a few miles west of the city, on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province. It is difficult to determine the exact date of the construction of the first building on the site of the present church. It was mentioned as early as 1340, but we know that the building was burned down during the Hussite Wars. In the seventeenth century, it was replaced by a new shrine.
