The palace in Kruszyn was built at the initiative of Kasper Denhoff, a local land owner, in the first half of the seventeenth century. The residence was built by Thomas Poncini, an Italian architect, who built a magnificent conservatory and perhaps Poland's first private theater building. The impressive palace was erected in the Mannerism and Baroque styles. It was fortified and surrounded by a French park.
The Parish Church of Saint Matthias in Kruszyna, a communal village situated north of Częstochowa, was built in the second half of the seventeenth century, when the owner of the village was the wealthy family of the Denhoffs. The church was expanded and modernized several times, but it has retained the Baroque style. The most impressive is the the main facade with two slender towers. Above the gate of the church we can see a figure of Christ, which brought here from Krakowskie Przedmieście, a district of Warsaw.
The palace in Nieznanice is located in the north of
Częstochowa, on the road to Radom. Aurelius Wünsche, a
local landowner, built it during the First World War. This
Eclectic building alludes to historical styles and Art
Nouveau. It is dominated by a squat tower rising from the
back. The palace is currently used as a hotel. The building
is surrounded by a small park.
The palace in Chorzenice was built by colonel Adam Nieniewski
in the second half of the 30s of the last century. He came into
possession of the property through marriage with Janina
Reszke, a daughter of Edward Reszke, a famous opera singer.
The palace, modeled on the Renaissance buildings, at the time
of its construction was equipped with modern conveniences.
During World War II, the German military police unit
stationed here. Today, the palace houses the Children's Home.
The Parish Church of Saint Leonard Abbot in Mykanów was built in the first half of the nineteenth century. Previously, there had been at least two successive, wooden churches on this site, because the history of the parish goes back to medieval times. The present, neo-Gothic church was designed by Enrico Marconi, an outstanding architect of Italian origins, who worked on Polish lands in the first half of the nineteenth century.
