Cieszyn – one of the most beautiful centers of South Poland, whose rich history has left behind a large number of different historical buildings and monuments. The main place is the Market Square (Rynek). It was established at the end of the 15th century, and took its present day shape at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. In the middle of the square is placed as well a statue of St. Florian (2nd half of the 18th century). The most characteristic structure within the square zone is the Town Hall. Today’s baroque and classical building, with a Tuscan colonnade, took shape in the 1st half of the 19th century. Moreover, there have been erected beautiful tenant houses – the former „Pod Brunatnym Jeleniem’ (Red Brown Stag) hotel, the post office and the National House (Dom Narodowy). In the former palace of Larisch Counts at ul. Regera is seated the Museum of the Cieszyn Silesia ( Muzeum Śląska Cieszyńskiego) with rich collections of archeological, ethnographic and historic exhibits. Worth of note is the largest Roman Catholic church in Cieszyn – the St. Mary Magdalene Church (kościół św. Marii Magdaleny), (13th century), in which all Cieszyn Piast dynasty members are buried. In turn, the largest Augsburg Evangelical sanctuary not only in Cieszyn but nationwide is the Church of Jesus (kościół Jezusowy) of the first half of the 18th century, seating approx. 6,000. Along Gleboka Street which will take you from the Market Square towards the castle Mount (Gora Zamkowa) and in its immediate neighborhood are also situated numerous interesting historical buildings and monuments, for example, a neo-Renaissance building of the Municipal Library (Biblioteka Miejska) of the 19th century, arcade tenant houses erected on the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries,the Three Brothers’ Well (Studnia Trzech Braci). Quite presentable is the Secession building of the Adam Mickiewicz Theater of the first half of the 20th century. Designed by the Vienna baroque style, it has a three-level auditorium with 630 seats and a rotary stage. In the Cieszyn Library (Książnica Cieszyńska), situated opposite the Theatre, you will find an exhibition of rich library collections of father Leopold Szersznik (15th – 19th century). While sightseeing the town, you must visit Castle Mount (Góra Zamkowa) with a Romanesque rotunda (11th century) – one of the oldest Polish sanctuaries. Next to it stands the Last Defense Tower (13th century) and the Piast (Dynasty) Tower (Wieża Piastowska), (14th century), which offers a vista of the town and the Beskidy Mountains. In lieu of the lower castle, in the 1st half of the 19th century there was built the Habsburgs’ Hunting Residence (Pałac Myśliwski Habsburgów).
