Mysterious Silesia Tour (Ksiaz castle - Swidnica - Osowka)
During this special day our professional driver/guide takes you to the various Silesian sites: mediaeval castle in Ksiaz, splendid church in Swidnica and impressive underground town Osowka.
Ksiaz (Fuerstenstein in German) is the biggest and most imposing of the Silesian castles, belonging to the same league as Wawel and Malbork. The daily sightseeing tour includes the most beautiful representative rooms and a fragment of a mysterious tunnel constructed by Nazis during the Second World War. The rest of the route leads through the oldest medieval-Renaissance part of the castle with the Hunting Hall, the Knights’ Hall and a small ballroom. After the tour, stay for a while on the castle terraces. The view is incredible!
The next place in your visit is an architectural marble listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site: the largest timber church in Europe, the Church of Peace in Swidnica. It was supposed to be a sign of reconciliation between Roman Catholics and Protestants ending the longest war in the history of Europe. Its characteristic construction is supported on a wooden framework filled with straw and clay briquettes. A modest architectural form contrasts with the rich interior – woodcarvings and painted decorations as well as pipe organs constitute outstanding Baroque pieces of art made by local masters.
The last part of the program takes place in the mysterious Osowka underground complex, the last and the most developed Hitler’s headquarters built in Lower Silesia. Being a part of the „Riese” (Giant in German) undertaking in the Owl Mountains contains a huge network of concrete corridors, fortifications and chambers, open not only for people interested in the history of II World War.
