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.
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.

the area of Wodzisław. Two of them are located in the
small village of Rogów. The cross called "Maltese” is
characteristic for its shape. It resembles the Cross of the
Knights of Malta, who were once present in the Silesian
principalities. The other one is distinguished by the fact
that in the course of time, it lost one of the arms.
