One of the Silesian magnate’s residences is a palace located in Borynia near Jastrzębie Zdrój. The palace is a rectangular Classicist building with some Baroque elements. It was built in the second half of the eighteenth century. It is a two-storey residence, covered with a mansard roof. There is a small park surrounding the palace, where you can find many monumental trees, including a 600 year-old oak.
In front of the Coal Mine "Borynia-Zofiówka" in Jastrzębie Zdrój, we can see a monument, which commemorates the Jastrzębie Agreement of 3 September 1980. The agreement was part of so-called August Agreements concluded between the communist authorities and the citizens. The monument was erected spontaneously and unveiled on the first anniversary of the Agreement. It was designed by Joachim Paruzel, a local miner. A short thereafter, during the martial law, the communists brutally suppressed the strike in the mine.
The Witczak family played an important role in the Jastrzębie spa. They managed it from the end of the nineteenth until the outbreak of the Second World War, which was the “Golden Age” for Jastrzębie Zdrój. The nestor of the family, Mikołaj Witczak, came from Wielkopolska. He died in 1918, in his beloved resort, and was buried in the burial chapel on the parish cemetery, at the Diocesan Shrine of Divine Providence in Jastrzębie Zdrój. Later his wife - Krystyna and his son Józef Antoni Witczak are buried next to his father.
The first mention of the church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria comes from the inspection report made in 1652. The church was rebuilt in 1825, after a fire in 1811, as a late-Baroque building with some neo-Classicist elements. Inside the church, which is the work of the founders - the Strachwitz family - there is, among others, a triangular image of the Eye of Divine Providence from the late eighteenth century, a pulpit, a baptismal font, an image of St Catherine and a brick choir supported by arches. In 2012, the Archbishop of Katowice raised the church to the rank of the Sanctuary of Divine Providence.
Amateur art painting has a rich tradition in Upper Silesia. One of the greatest artists was Ludwik Holesz (died in 1999), whose paintings can be found in numerous domestic and foreign collections. Every day, he worked as a miner in the mine "Moszczenica", and in his spare time he painted original pictures. You can see them in the gallery, which was opened in the family home of Ludwig Holesz in Świerklany, in 1986. His wife, daughter and grandson also deal with art.
The Gallery of the History of Jastrzębie Zdrój is the best place to learn about the history of this young city. The Gallery was set up in 2002, but since 2010, it has been housed in the former Baths II, a more appropriate place. Here, you can see permanent and temporary exhibitions. The exhibitions include the local history of coal mining and the presentation of the interior of a traditional Silesian kitchen.
