Katowice

Pszczyna

Just 37km south of Katowice, Pszczyna is a quaint little town centred around a handsome market square, but despite its small size, Pszczyna contains quite a few attractions! First and foremost, is Pszczyna Castle (formerly Pless Castle), which has stood here since the 13th century and undergone many facelifts, the most recent being during the course of the 18th/19th centuries, to renovate its Renaissance exterior to a Baroque-classical design, making it look more like the palace we see today. Interestingly, it contains 80% of its original interiors from the 19th & 20th centuries, despite the hardships the area saw through the wars. The castle grounds are part of the larger historic Pszczyna Park, which is also home to the Polish Bison Farm, where you can get up and personal with not only bison during feeding times, but deer, peacocks and geese too. This is definitely one for the kids to enjoy, but  adults will love it too.
