    Rybnik
    The palace in Rybnik is also known as the Piast Castle, but since the times of the Piast dynasty it has undergone many changes. Although the first mention of the castle dates to 327, we know that it existed here as a wooden building in the first half of the thirteenth century, and it had probably been constructed in the twelfth century. The present form of the palace primarily resulted from the rebuilding in the eighteenth century, when it was given the late baroque and neoclassicist appearance.

    Rybnik
    Stodoły is the smallest district of Rybnik, located in the north-western part of the city on the Rybnik Water Reservoir. Its name might just come from barns (“stodoły” means “barns” in English), which were typical for the former rural settlement, or the "hundred holes", meaning a large number of pits associated with the mining of iron ore. The most important monument here is a Cistercian mansion, built in the Baroque style in 1736.

    Czernica
    Although Czernica, located close to Rydułtów, is a small town, it boasts many interesting monuments.
