Skoczów
The great fifteenth-century historian, Jan Dlugosz, mentions Skoczów as the first town on the Upper Vistula. As you can see already it must have already been a pretty big town. Unfortunately, due to the devastating fires and floods in the following centuries, there are no traces of those times. However, a medieval town layout, with a large, centrally located market, dominated by the town hall, and a grid street plan has survived to this day
Skoczów
Gustaw Morcinek was a teacher and a writer. He wrote beautifully about Silesia. Already in the interwar period, he became closely associated with Skoczów. He even built a house here. After years, Skoczów returned the favor, and created the Biographical Museum. Currently, the Gustaw Morcinek Museum is a branch of the Museum of Cieszyn Silesia in Cieszyn. It is housed in a beautiful eighteenth-century tenement house. It collects memorabilia related to his life and work. In addition, there are exhibitions on the history of Skoczów and Cieszyn Silesia.
