Canoeing along the Ruda river, which flows in the southern part of Upper Silesia, is an attraction for lovers of small rivers that have not yet been regulated over their entire length. Canoes can be put into the water in Stadoły, a district of Rybnik, at the Rybnik Water Reservoir. The canoe trail then leads westwards through beautiful forests of the landscape park "Cistercian Landscape Compositions of Rudy Wielkie" to the confluence of the Oder behind Kuźnia Raciborska.
Stodoły is the smallest district of Rybnik, located in the north-western part of the city on the Rybnik Water Reservoir. Its name might just come from barns (“stodoły” means “barns” in English), which were typical for the former rural settlement, or the "hundred holes", meaning a large number of pits associated with the mining of iron ore. The most important monument here is a Cistercian mansion, built in the Baroque style in 1736.
Horse breeding in Rybnik was initiated at the beginning of the 90s of the last century, but formally the stud farm was initiated in 1994. At the beginning of this century, the idea appeared to Trakehner horses. This breed evolved as a result of crossbreeding conducted by the Royal Stud in Trakehnen in East Prussia.
The Rybnik Water Reservoir, also known as Lake Rybnik, is a water body, which was created by damming the Ruda river waters Rudy in Stodoły, a district of Rybnik. The project was primarily at cooling turbines of the Rybnik power plant. It results in a stream of warm water flowing into the reservoir. This popular lake attracts anglers and water sports enthusiasts.
The Cistercian Landscape Compositions of Rudy Wielkie is an interesting protected area located in the eastern part of the Racibórz Valley. It covers the northern parts of the Rybnik Plateau. The nature park was established here in 1993. It covers an area of 49 thousand hectares, including additional protective zones of the total area of 14 thousand hectares. The natural environment and historical and cultural values of the park make it an attractive area for tourists.
In the village of Zwonowice located amidst the forests of the Landscape Park "Cistercian Landscape Compositions of Rudy Wielkie", one can admire an interesting hunting lodge from the mid-nineteenth century on the mountain of Winna Góra. The building was erected during the reign of Duke Victor I, whose residence lay in nearby Rudy Wielkie. Previously, there was a farm building on this site, which belonged to the Cistercian monastery of Rudy Wielkie.
