The Old Factory of Smoking Pipes in Zborowski

Few people know that in the second half of the eighteenth century, Silesia was a leader in the production of ... clay pipes. In 1753, a smoking pipe manufactory was launched by the company initiated by the then owner of the Lubliniec – Andreas von Garnier - in Zborowskie near Lubliniec. It manufactured even two million pipes per year. The plant was closed in the mid-nineteenth century. To this day, one of the four factory buildings has survived in Zborowskie. It is waiting for revitalization.

In the small village of Pawełki, situated among the forests of the Upper Liswarta, you can find a fine, wooden church. It is a log cabin construction. The sanctuary is dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. It has been serving the villagers only since 1956. Previously, it was a chapel dedicated to Saint Hubert, which in the interwar period was built by Count Ludwik Karol von Ballestrem, owner of the property in Kocice, in the nearby wilderness called “Brzoza” (Birch).
The reserve „ Łęg nad Młynówka” (Mixed Forests on the Młynówka River) is one of the protected areas of the mixed forests in the valley of the Upper Liswarta River. The reserve covers almost 90 hectares, which means it belongs to the large areas of this kind. It is a relatively young reserve established in 2006. The reserve, located in the forest district of Panoszów, aims at preserving the piedmont ash tree mixed forest.
In the commune of Kochanowice, within the Upper Liswarta Forests Landscape Park, there are two natural sites worth seeing. One is the ecological site “Brzoza”, of which the major part is a pond of the same name. The other lies close to the natural attraction that is the place where the Rhododendron catawbiense grows. Both of these sites can be seen while hiking along a sevenkilometer-long natural path.
Patoka is one of the villages in the commune of Ciasna, located in the district of Lubliniec, in the north-western part of the province of Silesia. The village is situated slightly off the beaten frequented routes to the east of the road from Lubliniec to Olesno. The palace sited here was built in the nineteenth century, and it was rebuilt at the end of that century. This two-storey, neo-Baroque-style mansion is now a private property
Ciasna is a village on the edge of the Silesian Voivodeship, which in the interwar period was a German settlement on the German-Polish border. The local castle was built in the early twentieth century, on the initiative of the Kitzing family. Unfortunately, due to a fire in 1943 and the ill-considered renovation, the residence lost its stylish features. The palace is not open to the public. Today, it houses a children's home.
