Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park

  ul. Parkowa 25, Chorzów ,   No District          (+48) 32 241 07 18     03 Jun 2019

This fantastic open-air folk park presents rural Silesian life through its aged architectural monuments. Since the late 60s, Chorzów's 'skansen' has been rescuing endangered or forgotten Silesian structures by hoisting them up and dropping them in this makeshift village laid out over 20 hectares of idyllic countryside. Grouped into six ethnographic regions, visitors explore some 100 buildings dating from the late 18th to early 20th century, including traditional thatched-roof homes, granaries, historic wooden churches, wayside shrines and windmills (please note, on Mondays, you can only walk around them without entering). Many of the buildings are open with indoor exhibits and an informative staff on hand. There's even an old karczma (inn) where you can get a bite to eat and a beer. One of the farms even has a few goats, sheep and horses, adding some extra magic to this romantic village of architectural artefacts saved from extinction. Although currently undergoing renovation, you can still walk around the park, with works set to be completed by May 2019.
