Cieszyn is a very charming city with over 1200 years of history. It borders directly with the Czech Republic. If you choose Cieszyn as your travel destination, it is worth doing some research beforehand and learning about the attractions awaiting you. There are many indeed 🙂
A little bit of history
It is worth starting your tour of Cieszyn from the symbolic and legendary Well of the Three Brothers. This is where it all started! It is also worth spending a moment strolling around the market square, admiring the beautiful townhouses and the town hall. You will also be charmed by Cieszyn’s Venice – an ideal place for romantic evening strolls. And if you like a lot of walking, you will certainly appreciate the numerous walking trails located in the city.
With a 20-zloty note in your hand….
Head to Castle Hill. Get to the top, walk straight ahead, look to the right…. In front of you stands the Rotunda of St. Nicholas – exactly the same as the one on the banknote! In addition to the Rotunda, on the hill you will also find the Piast Tower (go to the top of the tower to admire the beautiful panorama of Polish and Czech Cieszyn) and the Final Defense Tower. If you’re on the hill, visit the nearby Castle Brewery, which organises a sightseeing and beer tasting tour featuring Cieszyn’s best beers!
On the Czech side
While in Cieszyn, it is definitely worth visiting its Czech side located on the opposite bank of the Olza river. Some of the sites worth visiting in Czech Cieszyn include the market square and the Sikora Park, which is perfect for a stroll…. Only 15 km from Cieszyn lies Karviná, with its Spa Park. Golf enthusiasts will surely appreciate the golf courses located nearby. Brewing fans should also visit the Radegast Brewery, which is 30 km away.
