    Świerklany
    Amateur art painting has a rich tradition in Upper Silesia. One of the greatest artists was Ludwik Holesz (died in 1999), whose paintings can be found in numerous domestic and foreign collections. Every day, he worked as a miner in the mine "Moszczenica", and in his spare time he painted original pictures. You can see them in the gallery, which was opened in the family home of Ludwig Holesz in Świerklany, in 1986. His wife, daughter and grandson also deal with art.

    The church of Holy Spirit of Racibórz is a fourteenth-century building. For ages, its history was associated with the nearby Dominican monastery. The convent in the monastery, which daughter of the local dukes entered, was one of the main religious and cultural centers in the area. Nowadays, inside the building, which after the dissolution of the monasteries in Prussia in 1810 went through various vicissitudes, there is a museum with some interesting exhibitions, including an archaeological one.
