The Bunkers of the Upper Silesian Position in Zbrosławice

For lovers of old fortification Upper Silesia is a real paradise, primarily due to the perfectly preserved Polish fortifications of the Fortified Area Silesia. Yet, in the interwar period, German fortifications, known as the Upper Silesian Position, were also built here. The most impressive remains can be seen in Zbrosławice, where in the shelter R 116 a museum chamber has been arranged.

A Baroque palace stands in the village of Wilkowice (not far from Tarnowskie Góry). It was erected in the first half of the eighteenth century. Is owners were the members of the wealthy family of von Larisch. In the first half of the nineteenth century the palace belonged to Alfred von Koschitzki, a known social activist. The building was erected on a rectangular plan. It is made of brick and covered with a mansard roof. Its style refers to late Baroque.
The palace in Kopanin, in the hamlet of Miedary, is one of numerous residential objects from the nineteenth century in the province of Tarnowskie Góry. The building was erected for Barons von Fürstenberg, the then owners of the estate. Its main part was built in the years 1883-94, and at the turn of the century the palace was extended. It is a neo-Baroque construction with a mansard roof. It is decorated with many avant-corps and turrets with flagon-shaped helmet. At present, it houses a nursing home.
Tarnowskie Góry
Rybna is a district of Tarnowskie Góry. It is situated in the western part of the city. In Rybna, there is a splendid chateau built by the Warkocz family at the end of the eighteenth century. It is a two-storey building, covered with a mansard roof. Stylistically, it combines features of the Baroque and neo-Classicist styles. At present, the chateau of Rybna is a municipal cultural institution, which is known for organizing musical events and exhibitions. There are also a hotel and a restaurant in the chateau.
In the wood between Zbrosławice and Tarnowskie Góry underground waters flow from the tunnel "Frederick" into the so-called distribution station "Frederick", which conveys it, and after a few hundred meters, into the Drama River. The outflow of groundwaters was covered with an interesting brick structure the so-called "Miners Gate " in the early nineteenth century, Part of the "Frederick" is called the "Black Trout Adit", located in the park sanatorium in Repty Śląskie. It is open to the tourists who go in metal boats along a 600-meter stretch of the underground, between the shafts "Eve" and "New Year’s Eve".
The palace Zbrosławice was built by the von Stockman family in the style of late Baroque about 1756. It was probably erected in place of the older buildings from the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In the following centuries, the palace was being rebuilt, and now it mainly represents the Classicist style, but without explicit stylistic features. Today, the dilapidated building is closed and it can be seen only from the outside.
