Koszęcin is one of the villages situated in the picturesque region of Silesia, although this area is less frequently visited by tourists. The local forest inspectorate prides itself on several protected areas, which comprise nature reserves and a nature park. The forest inspectorate is particularly proud of its office, which is housed in a Classicist mansion of the early nineteenth century, built as the seat of the administrator of the estate of Count Hohenlohe.
Throughout 60 years of its activity the Polish National Song and Dance Ensemble "Śląsk" in memory of Stanisław Hadyna has gained recognition not only in Poland but also abroad. It represents a "wealth of Silesian culture against the heritage of other regions of the country." In the twenty-first century, the ensemble has also created the Silesian Centre for Regional Education. This project includes not only the renovation of the magnificent palace in Koszęcin, home to the ensemble, but also "the dissemination of cultural heritage" – especially of Silesia - among adults, children and young people.
All fans of the National Song and Dance Ensemble "Śląsk" in memory of Stanisław Hadyna should visit its seat in Koszęcin near Lubliniec. A beautiful, Classicist palace (the seat of the ensemble) stands in this village. It is surrounded with a park and a park and a number of accompanying facilities. The Adolf Dygacz Creative Work House occupies in an old grange, which also houses the Chamber of Tradition presenting not only the tradition of memorabilia associated with the activities of the ensemble, but also regional attractions.
The palace in Koszęcin close to Lubliniec is commonly known as home to the popular Stanisław Hadyna National Song and Dance Ensemble "Śląsk". The first residence was built in the sixteenth century. The current, magnificent palace in the Classicist style was erected by Duke Adolf zu Hohenlohe Ingelfingen, the then owner of the Koszęcin property, in the first half of the nineteenth century. The palace is surrounded by a large park with rare trees and shrubs.
Koszęcin is a village in the commune of Lubliniec, but the local parish belongs to the Diocese of Gliwice. The parish church of Holy Trinity is an eighteenth-century building, erected on the site of the previous shrine. The oriented building was erected in the log construction on the stone and brick foundation. The monument lies on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
The reserve "Jeleniak-Mikuliny" is located in the district of Koszęcin, near the village of Piłka, within the area of the primeval Świerklaniec-Lubliniec woodland, in the upper reaches of the Mała Panwia river. Most of the area is covered with two shallow, overgrown ponds, which are surrounded by the forest. The reserve protects primarily the original bog plants and crane breeding sites. In the reserve, there are also some rare and protected plants, including insectivorous ones.
