The Castle in Grodziec


The origins of Grodziec, a village lying near Skoczów, go back to at least the twelfth century. The name comes from the wooden Grodek, which in Polish means “an old small settlement”. Grodek, situated in the Duchy of Cieszyn, guarded the trade route from the Polish capital of Kraków, through Cieszyn towards Moravia and Bohemia. For the first time, the village was mentioned as "Świesza" at the beginning of the fourteenth century. At the end of that century, a brick building was erected on the site of the wooden watchtower.

Grodziec
In Grodziec, a village in Cieszyn Silesia, just a few kilometers from Skoczów, we can find two churches of St Bartholomew. The one built of stone and brick at the end of the sixteenth century is in dilapidation. The other was built in the early twentieth century. It is a neo-Gothic brick building, the seat of an independent parish. It is worth a look inside to see the historical part of the equipment of the old church.
Cieszyn
The Cieszyn Tuff Springs is the name of the areas, which include the refuge habitats belonging to the Natura 2000 network. These are the four isolated areas, located in the western part of the Silesian Highlands, which is commonly referred to as the foothills of Cieszyn. A characteristic phenomenon of some local springs is the deposition (i.e., precipitation) of calc – sinter (travertine limestone and tuffs).
Grodziec
"Morzyk" is a partial reserve forest It was created in 1996 to preserve the woodland of a deciduous forest and Carpathian beech forest, and in order to protect the black stork, which is a rare bird. Originally, the reserve area had 11.47 ha, which due to the unfortunate construction of a road, was reduced to 10.26 ha. There is a tuff spring in the area.
Bielowicko
One of the most beautiful wooden churches in Cieszyn Silesia is Saint Lawrence Church in Biełowicko. The building was erected in 1541. It has valuable furnishings, among others, a triptych, which may come from the time when the church was built. The church, as it was in the past, houses parish offices, although it did not serve this purpose for three centuries. The parish belongs to the diocese of Bielsko and Żywiec. The church is located on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
Jasienica
Łański Potok is a stream, which originates on the northern slopes of Zebrzydka (575 m above sea level) and Łazek (713 m), located in the Błatnia massif of the Silesian Beskid. The stream leaves the mountains and flows through the rolling terrain of the Silesian Foothills. The reserve was established in the forested areas on the both sides of the creek, in the vicinity of Grodziec and Świętoszówka. It primarily protects characteristic of riparian communities.

Wioskę rozsławiła popularna autorka książek historycznych Zofia Kossak-Szczucka-Szatkowska, w której dworku znajduje się obecnie Centrum Kultury i Sztuki „Dwór Kossaków” Do Górek Wielkich warto również wpaść, aby odpocząć podczas uprawiania aktywnej turystyki.
