The Mansion of the President of the Republic of Poland in Wisła is a Modernist building, erected in the years 1929-1930, in a picturesque, wooded area on the slopes of the hill called Zadni Groń, in the southern part of Wisła. It is the Residence of the President. The mansion resembling a medieval castle was designed by Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz. It was built from donations of the inhabitants of Silesia and ceremoniously handed over to President Ignacy Mościcki.
The chapel of Saint Hedwig on the hill of Zadni Groń in Wisła is part of the mansion belonging to the President of the Republic of Poland. The wooden Tyrolean-style building was erected in 1909, at the time when the hunting mansion of the Habsburgs, which had been built a bit earlier) was already standing nearby. Today, the property is located in the area administered by the Office of the President,but it is open to the public. Both Evangelical and Catholic services are held here.
One of the greatest assets of Wisła, a town located in the mountains, is the wildlife of the Silesian Beskid. Mountains, streams and forests full of animals aroused admiration as early as the nineteenth century, when a planned forest management was launched. While staying in the resort at the foot of Barania Góra, it is worthwhile to visit the Historical Chamber and the Office of the Forester, which are situated at the building of the Forestry Management office. There, we will learn, inter alia, about the job of old foresters.
