"Strzecha" is a cultural center at Londzina
Street in Racibórz. It is an institution of
outstanding merit for the city community. It was registered in

The church of Holy Spirit of Racibórz is a fourteenth-century building. For ages, its history was associated with the nearby Dominican monastery. The convent in the
monastery, which daughter of the local dukes entered, was one of the main religious and cultural centers in the area. Nowadays, inside the building, which after the dissolution of the monasteries in Prussia in 1810 went through various vicissitudes, there is a museum with some interesting exhibitions, including an archaeological one.
Nowadays, beer is produced mainly by large
companies, which affects its quality.
Therefore, more and more discerning beer
drinkers are turning to the products of smaller
breweries. Racibórz Castle Brewery prides
itself on the oldest tradition of beer brewing
in the region. According to written sources, it
is known that in this area, beer brewing dates
back to at least as early as the thirteenth
century. The first mention of the ducal
brewery comes from the sixteenth century.

In 1846, piano virtuoso Franz Liszt gave a performance in its elegant concert hall. In the interwar period, the hotel “German House” operated in it.
