What to Expect
Lower Silesia is a fascinating region. With its turbulent past, interesting culture and incredibly beautiful landscape make it one of the most visited voivodeship in Poland. Unique place for an excellent day journey that offers plenty to explore.

The Church of Peace in Świdnica or Jawor – the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, were built in the former Silesia in the mid-17th century, amid the religious strife that followed the Peace of Westphalia. Constrained by the physical and political conditions, the Churches of Peace bear testimony to the quest for religious freedom and are a rare expression of Lutheran ideology in an idiom generally associated with the Catholic Church. Built outside the city walls, made of wood or clay and built in less than a year, now placed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

Książ – The third largest castle in Poland, located on a majestic rock cliff by the side of the Pelcznica River. Beautifully surrounded by the forest at the height of 395m above sea level, castle is often called ‘the Pearl of Lower Silesia’. Such location corresponding to the size of the building is very rare in Europe. In 1943 Hitler’s paramilitary organization had stormed into the Castle and began to construct one of the most important quarters for Adolf Hitler.

Complex Osówka* – Part of impressive construction project conducted by Nazi Germany between 1943-1945 (Codename Riese ). Mysterious structures nicknamed “Underground City” still await to unveil their secrets…Discover with us Hitler’s last, main, biggest and most elaborate quarters in Lower Silesia.

Gross-Rosen in Rogoźnica* – The biggest Nazi German concentration camp in Lower Silesia. Dozen thousands of prisoners died in it. Poles, Jews, Russians, Frenchmen, Hungarians.
