The Palace in Krzyżanowice

The mansion in Krzyżanowice was built at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but the current, neo-Gothic form was given to it during the nineteenth-century reconstruction. The palace was built on a rectangular plan, and its corners are decorated with distinctive, octagonal towers. The south-east tower houses a chapel. The palace hosted prominent persons in the past, including Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Liszt.

The church of Saint Anne in Krzyżanowice, a large village in the district of Racibórz, was built in the second half of the eighteenth century. It was erected on the site of an older, most likely wooden church. The building was constructed in the late Baroque style, but the tower has some characteristics of the Gothic and Renaissance styles. Above the portal there is a cartouche with the coat of arms of the long-term owners of Krzyżanowice, the Lichnowsky family, who founded the altar in the church.
Buków lies in the commune of Lubomia, in the district of Włodzisław. The town located on the banks of the Oder has been often flooded by the river. The first mention of the village comes from the early fourteenth century. The eclectic church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help from the 1930s stands in the middle of the village. Among other monuments, an eighteenth-century Chapel of the Rosary is worth visiting. The monument lies on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
In the southern part of the Silesian Voivodeship, on the Oder river, there is a special, protected area of habitats in the Natura 2000 network, known as the “Forest near Tworków”. It covers more than 115 hectares. Within the refuge, valuable in terms of nature are oxbow lakes and ponds, as well as hornbeam and riparian forests, which dominate the landscape. There are rare species of animals and plants, here.
In Tworków, a large village on the Oder, near Racibórz, apart from the ruins of the castle, we can visit the church of Saints Peter and Paul, which is visible from a distance because of its 40- meter-tall tower. The inside the late seventeenthcentury church there are some interesting altars and remains of trompe l'oeil Baroque murals. The church also houses an ancestral crypt of the Reiswitz family, the former owners of the village.
Tworków is a small, but old village near Racibórz. There are a few monuments including the ruins of a castle which are worth seeing. Originally, the castle had been a Gothic medieval building, which was rebuilt into a Renaissance residence, and later converted into a fancy neo-Renaissance palace. The building, which unfortunately burned down in the interwar years, is now a picturesque ruin.
Tworków is a large village near Racibórz. It prides itself on many interesting, high-class monuments.
