n the second half of the seventeenth century, the followers of Lutheranism in Cieszyn Silesia suffered severe persecution by the arch Catholic Habsburgs. After expelling them by force from all the churches in the principality, they had to pray in secret. So-called forest churches come from that time. These were the remote places in the mountains, where Protestants met in secret devotions. One of them is a huge stone preserved to this day on top of Równica near Ustroń.

"In 2008, after 236 years of continuous operation, the Ustroń Forge was shut down. Health resort qualities prevailed over the industry. Currently, the traditions of Ustroń metallurgy and forging are displayed in the Ustroń Museum, located in the former administration building of the steel plant ""Klemens"". The museum strives to serve as a cultural center, so apart from exhibitions, it publishes books, organizes jubilee celebrations, meetings and concerts, promoting artists from Ustroń.
