Hotel Villa Verde Restaurant is located in the heart of Cracow-Czestochowa Upland, near Zawiercie. It is surrounded by forest and not far from two national roads: Katowice-Warszawa and Cracow- Zawiercie and airports in Katowice-Pyrzowice (27 km) and Cracow-Balice (75 km).
The beginnings of the parish in Kroczyce date back (according to written documents) to the twelfth century. Before the erection of the present brick church, there were two successive wooden churches here (though their history is not well known). One was destroyed by a fire. The other wooden building was founded by Piotr Firlej in 1427 as a votive foundation for the safe return after the Battle of Grunewald in 1410. The present church comes from the nineteenth century.
The ruins of the knight castle "Bąkowiec" from the
fourteenth and fifteenth centuries are located within the
area of the holiday resort "Morsko", near the village of the
same name. Next to the castle there are the two most
important hiking trails of the Polish Jura – the red Trail of
the Eagles' Nests and the blue Trail of the Jurassic
Strongholds. A trip to the ruins of the castle can be
combined with a visit to the nearby Rzędkowice and the
The church of the Holy Trinity and and St Florian in Zawiercie Skarżyce is one of the parish churches in Zawiercie. It is a distinctive consrtuction with three chapes in the form of a rotunda, which symbolize the Holy Trinity. In 1999, the church was raised by archbishop Stanisław Nowak, metropolitan bishop of Częstochowa, to the rank of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Skarżyce.
In 1914, at the beginning of the bloody First World War, the area of the Polish Jura became the scene of a particularly fierce fighting of the allied German and Austro-Hungarian army against the Russians. Only in November 1914, around 70,000 German and Austrian soldiers were killed. The dead were buried in special military cemeteries, one of which we can see in Włodowice near Zawiercie.
Włodowice is both a village and the seat of the
commune in the district of Zawiercie. There is a ruined
chateau from the second half of the seventeenth century
built by Stanisław Warszycki, Castellan of Kraków, and a
very colorful character, famous for its numerous
scandals. The mansion hosted, inter alia, Jan III Sobieski.
It was repeatedly rebuilt in the following centuries.
Unfortunately, the twentieth-century fires and neglect
during the communist regime contributed significantly
to its ruin.
