Pszczyna is one of the oldest towns in Silesia. It is located in the southern part of Poland , about 20 km from Auschwitz . The main tourist attraction is the castle from the 12th century. The city currently has a population of 38, 000.

About the Town

The first mention of Pszczyna dates back to 1303. However, Pszczyna had existed even before. In the early Middle Ages, it was an important point on the merchant trail from Russia to the region of the Danube River. In the past Pszczyna used to be capital of Pszcyna´s domain. Until 1998, it was a part of the Katowice Province. It is a small town, whose picturesque appearance creates a strong contrast to the industrialized Upper Silesia.

Tourist Attractions

The main attraction is the Castle Pszczyna with a museum. Another locality definitely worth visiting is , for example, the Pszczyna English park , which is located behind the castle. The park comprises bridges and summer houses and a variety of exotic woods. It is considered as the most picturesque garden in Silesia. Among other interesting places in the town are the long Market Square, surrounded with old burgher houses from the 18th and 19th century, and the Protestant Church and the Town Hall on the north side of the square. Behind the town hall you can find the parish church from the 14th century. Near the Market Square, you can visit a small but very interesting open air museum. It is proud of the collection of 200 years old wooden houses brought to this site from around the region. Another frequently visited destination is the Museum of Silesian Press.

Tourist Services

There is a great variety of accommodation facilities and restaurants in Pszczyna. Many of them offer traditional Polish meals. The city Pszczyna has a sports hall, a stadium, tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, a windsurfing center (as large lakes are not very far from here) and a golf course . In the surroundings, there are main international bicycle trails.
