The castle in Kończyce Małe, a village on the Polish-Czech border, is sometimes called Cieszyn Wawel Castle. This is due to the arcades in the inner courtyard. This Renaissance building was erected by the members of the Czel family in the sixteenth century. It later belonged to the families of the Pełk and Folwarczny. Today, the castle houses numerous local associations, the Regional Chamber and an elegant hotel and restaurant.
The church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria in Pielgrzymowice was built in the second half of the seventeenth century. It is made of wood, covered with shingles. The one-nave church with a tower is topped with a tent roof. The interior is mostly in the Baroque style. We can find here images and figures from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The polychromy on the ceiling and the stained glass windows were designed by Paweł Steller, a known Silesian artist.
Stylish decorated interiors and unique atmosphere of the restaurant makes it a perfect place for a business lunch, family dinner or a meeting with friends over a glass of great wine. In this restaurant you can also organize an unforgettable wedding reception.
