Pietrowice Wielkie
Pietrowice Wielkie is a large communal village, located west of Racibórz. It distinguishes itself by an oval layout, which has been preserved to this day. The layout was already created in the time of its foundation. In the center of the village a road forks out forming a spindle-shaped square, to which strips of fields are adjacent located on its external side. In the village it is worthwhile to see farms of the Franconian type, old churches and numerous shrines and roadside crosses.
The Church of the Holy Trinity in Cyprzanów near Racibórz was built on the site of an old, wooden shrine, which burned down in 1861. It was erected in the then popular neo-Gothic style in the second half of the nineteenth century. The church is adorned with a polygonal tower crowned with a pyramidal helmet. Inside the church there are original stained glass windows in the presbytery and the high altar manufactured in the Winckler’s plant in Wrocław.
On the north-western edge of the village of Samborowice, near Racibórz, just close to the border with the Czech Republic, there is a restored, historic mansion that is surrounded by old farm buildings. The mansion was built for von Brebeck, the then owner of Samborowice, in the late nineteenth century. It is a one-story construction, but with a usable attic. The mansion is covered with a mansard roof. The west façade is distinguishes itself with a projection topped with a triangular pediment.
Wojnowice is a village near Racibórz mentioned in the fourteenth century, when it belonged to the property of the Dominican Convent Racibórz. There are historic monuments in the village, including a nineteenth-century palace, which was rebuilt in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, and the parish church of the Elevation of the Holy Cross. This church was erected in the style of late-Baroque and Neoclassicism in the late eighteenth century. It was rebuilt twice in the first half of the twentieth century.
Krzanowice, a little over two thousand town in the district of Racibórz, was granted town privileges probably as early as 1265 and had a municipal status for nearly 700 years. In 1945, after the Second World War, the Polish authorities changed it for a rural commune. Residents regained the former status in 2001. One of their arguments was a preserved old oval layout of the town with a market and a network of streets.
The imposing parish church of Saint Wenceslaus in Krzanowice stands in the vicinity of the market square of this small town, located in the south of the Silesian voivodeship. The building in the neo-Baroque style was erected on the site of an older, neo-Gothic church in 1914-1915. Inside, we will see eighteenth-century altars, a pulpit, and figures of saints, which come from the older church.
