    Częstochowa
    In Częstochowa, at Krakowska Street, there is an eclectic small palace, built in 1909. It is the former palace of Jean Motte, co-owner of a French textile factory. The usual practice of nineteenth-century entrepreneurs was to erect their residences near the company, which was from their own, but more frequently from borrowed funds. Before the First World War, the Polish Kingdom, including Częstochowa, actively participated in the development of the Russian economy. In Częstochowa, they assigned pieces of land for the houses of the French residing in Częstochowa.

    Olsztyn
    The ruins of the castle in Olsztyn near Częstochowa are among the best-known strongholds of the Polish Jura. A cylindrical, 35- meter tall tower catches the eye from afar. It was built of white limestone, and overbuilt with brown bricks, like a mast of the ship floating in the rough sea. Indeed, the castle witnessed many dramatic events, including the assassination of Maciek Borkowic. From the mid-seventeenth century on, it was falling into disrepair. Eventually, it became a tourist attraction, lying on the popular Eagles’ Nests Trail.

    Złoty Potok
    One of the monuments of Złoty Potok associated with Zygmunt Krasiński is a Classicist mansion built by Wincenty Krasiński, poet’s father, in the first half of the nineteenth century.

Częstochowa
The church of Saint James in Częstochowa has an interesting history. Originally, there was a sixteenth-century chapel of the same patron, and in its place, a brick church was built in the following century. During the partitions, on the site of the demolished chapel, tsarist authorities erected an Orthodox church of Saints Cyril and Methodius, which was somewhat a demonstration of power. After being returned to the parish of Saint James, the building was rebuilt, but has retained the characteristic features of the neo-Byzantine style.
