The Jadwiga and Marian Dudys' Bread Hut is located in Górki Małe, in the valley of the Brennica, in the picturesque north-western part of the Silesian Beskids. The hut invites you to a meeting with „a crumb" of tradition. We can learn here about the secrets of baking bread, making butter and cheese, or extracting honey. The hut can be the starting or end point of mountain hikes towards the ranges of Równica, Klimczok and Blatnia.

The wooden church of Saint Anne in Ustroń Nierodzim is known to all visitors to the health resort located beneath Mount Czantoria. It stands close to the road to Katowice. The modest, wooden church was built in the eighteenth century. The tower was added just before the Second World War. The interior of the church is in the late-Baroque style. As Fr. Józef Londzin wrote: "church attracts each passer-by by its mystery and beauty of the poetry of the area".
In Grodziec, a village in Cieszyn Silesia, just a few kilometers from Skoczów, we can find two churches of St Bartholomew. The one built of stone and brick at the end of the sixteenth century is in dilapidation. The other was built in the early twentieth century. It is a neo-Gothic brick building, the seat of an independent parish. It is worth a look inside to see the historical part of the equipment of the old church.
The origins of Grodziec, a village lying near Skoczów, go back to at least the twelfth century. The name comes from the wooden Grodek, which in Polish means “an old small settlement”. Grodek, situated in the Duchy of Cieszyn, guarded the trade route from the Polish capital of Kraków, through Cieszyn towards Moravia and Bohemia. For the first time, the village was mentioned as "Świesza" at the beginning of the fourteenth century. At the end of that century, a brick building was erected on the site of the wooden watchtower.
