"In 2008, after 236 years of continuous operation, the Ustroń Forge was shut down. Health resort qualities prevailed over the industry. Currently, the traditions of Ustroń metallurgy and forging are displayed in the Ustroń Museum, located in the former administration building of the steel plant

The Museum of Printing in Cieszyn was initiated in 1996. It is housed in a tenement house, at Głęboka Street, which is the most important street in the city. Its main organizer was Karol Franek, a printer fascinated with old machines and printing equipment. The museum’s motto is: "You will not find the deceased at the wall ...” This means that each machine is still operating, and you can see how it works. The museum presents all stages of traditional printing.
The Żywiec Archducal Brewery is one of the most famous and
successful producers of beer in Poland. The history of the plant
began in the mid-nineteenth century, when the decision was
taken by Archduke Albrecht Friedrich Habsburg, the then owner
of Żywiec to build a brewery. Many of the original brewery
buildings have been preserved to this day. They were designed
by Karol Pietschka. The Żywiec Brewery Museum astounds with
modern solutions, where we will learn the history of the plant
and the process of beer production.

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.
