Although Czernica, located close to Rydułtów, is a small town, it boasts many interesting monuments. It is worthwhile to see an old inn, which for some time also served as a church, and a railroad tunnel from the nineteenth century. However, the most remarkable is a neo-Gothic palace built by the Roth family between 1880 and 1885. It is neatly restored. The palace houses public institutions. You should bear in mind that Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, an outstanding Polish composer, was born in Czernica.
"In Niewiadom, one of the districts of Rybnik, we will find the coal mine ""Ignacy”, which is one of the oldest in Upper Silesia. It was built at the initiative of the Prussian minister, George Charles von Hoym, already in 1792. The coal mine under different names operated for over 200 years. In the twenty-first century, its surface buildings with equipment have been made available to the public. Two valuable, still operating steam engines of the winding tower are of particular intereSt The property is located on the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian voivodeship."
The Rudy train station is located in the middle of the old narrow-gauge railway line between Gliwice and Racibórz. There is an open air railway museum, with a mile-long stretch of track (along which tourist trains run). It is an attraction on the Industrial Monuments Route. The narrow-gauge railway appeared in Rudy at the end of the nineteenth century. It was in March 1899 that “Kramer and Partners” opened a 23-kilometer railway line from Gliwice through Nieborowice to Rudy and Racibórz Płonia, and three months later, it started carrying passengers.
The Church of Corpus Christi in Rybnik Jankowice was built as the foundation of Count Ferdinand Oppersdorf in 1675. It is one of the two wooden churches in Silesia built on a Greek cross plan. The shrine is a typical log cabin construction. The roofs are covered with shingles. The neo-Baroque interior houses a few eighteenth-century monuments, such as the painting of the Ascension and a Baroque font.
Jankowice Rybnickie is a village situated a few kilometers south of Rybnik. Its origins date back to 1223. Amidst the picturesque forests and valleys, there is a place of pilgrimage, dating back to old times. The ceremonies performed here are the testimony to the devotion of the local people. Since 2002, the place, along with the nearby parish church in Jankowice, has been the Sanctuary of the Blessed Sacrament.
