The church of the Finding of the Holy Cross in Wisła Głębce is a very successful combination of a new architecture with historic details. The body of the
church was built in the early 80s of the last century, but the tower is older than ... four hundred years. Because it comes from the church in Połomia near Jastrzębie-Zdrój, from where it was moved to Wisła and painstakingly reconstructed. The church stands on the slope of a hill, and at its foot the Kopydło stream rustles gently.
The Museum of Pharmacy in Wisła is housed in the Highland Cottage “Kleszczonka” located at 22 Głębce Street. Pharmacy exhibits have been collected by the Cieciał and Zakolski families. Among them, there are items belonging to Paweł Cienciał, the first pharmacist in Wisła. In addition to the typical equipment of an old pharmacy, we can also see some curiosities. Worth a visit if only for the 140-year-old dry-herbal sauna or 200-year-old, wooden stethoscope.
The railway bridge in Łabajów, located in the vicinity of
the train station of Wisła Głębce is one of the largest
such structures in Poland. The bridge of seven arches and

construction was erected over the valley floor in the
years 1931-1933. It is located along the popular tourist

In Wisła, one of the most popular resorts in Poland, fans of
industrial monuments can see two unique buildings of civil
engineering from the interwar period - railway bridges - one
over the Dziechcinka valley and the other over the Łabajów
valley. The latter, bigger is better known, but the other is also
worth looking at. It stands on three arches rising to an
impressive height of about 13 meters.
Jerzy Kukuczka was the most prominent Polish Himalayan climber, the second person, who won all the eight-thousanders, which is the Crown of the Himalayas. He perished while climbing Mount Lhotse. Although the climber was born and lived in Katowice, his family was associated with Istebna in the Silesian Beskid. In this village, in a hamlet called Wilcze, you will find his home, which houses the Memorial Room dedicated to him. We can see photographs, climbing equipment, skis and sports trophies there.
