    How to pronounce "Pszczyna"???

    by Kathrin_E Written Jun 14, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The name looks like a misspelling but it is not. So how to pronounce it? Very easy, in fact.

    "Psh-t-shEE-nah."

    Easy, eh?
    Please repeat...

    Fondest memory: Matt gave us several lessons during the bus ride until we all could say it...

    City hall

    Favorite thing: The population of Pszczyna town is about 27 thousand. Tourist advantages of the Land Of Pszczyna have been known for a long time, though there are still many attractive places to be discovered and properly developed. The capital of the region is best prepared to receive guests. In Pszczyna, there are hotels of varied standards, as well a network of trade, service and catering outlets, ready to provide their services to tourists. Nevertheless, it is the entire Pszczyna region which is of unique interest, highly recommended for visits.

    OLD  TENEMENT  HOUSE

    Favorite thing: Old, renovated houses are usually painted in pastel colors in Pszczyna, like in Italy hehe and in contrast to bright green of Mexico for example.
    Unique are colores of roofing-tiles of some houses: dark brown or black in contrast to common red/orange.

    MIRROR  HALL  IN  CASTLE  MUSEUM

    Favorite thing: The Castle Museum in Pszczyna is one of the most frequently visited museums-residences in Poland. Every year, the castle attracts over 100 thousand tourists. Why?
    Because of very well maintained interiors of Pszczyna castle. At most days you can enter the museum till 2.00pm. Don't forget to buy a guide-book to the museum in castle tourist store.
    You can't get the guide in English or German unless you call to Musem Office in advance: (+48 32) 210 30 37.

    CASTLE  PARK  IN  FALL/AUTUMN

    Favorite thing: The castle park with its small lakes looks really amazing. It covers quite large area.
    It looks much better then a little neglected outside building of the castle itself. And it looks great although different whenever you come: in winter, summer, spring and fall/autumn.

    WESTERN  WING  OF  PSZCZYNA  CASTLE

    Favorite thing: In the immediate neighbourhood of the Market Square (Rynek) , right behind the Wybrantzen Gate, the magnificent residence of the Dukes of Pszczyna is situated.

    The first fortified castle was built in 11th centure in this place. The last reconstruction – in the neo-baroque style – was carried out in the years 1871-1876, by Aleksandre Hippolite Destailleur, a famous French architect (1822-1893).

    STREET  LAMP

    Favorite thing: Look at old street lamps. They are put along main walking (closed to traffic) street of Pszczyna that is Piastowska Street and around Market Square. More and more old Polish towns put them now - I like it.

    ROMAN  CATHOLIC  PARISH  CHURCH

    Favorite thing: There is Roman Catholic Parish Church at the back of Evangelical Church. The renovation of this church is almost finished now in 2003. So, it looks better and better now. Go to see its already renovated interiors.

    Evangelic church

    EVANGELIC  CHURCH

    Favorite thing: There is an evangelic church at the main square (Market Square = Rynek) of Pszczyna. It's buit in neo-baroque style and its located in the northern part of the square together with adjacent (to right on my picture) neo-renaissance Town Hall built in 1930.
    Hmm... the church looks better than city Town Hall in my opinion.

    MARKET  SQUARE  (RYNEK)  IN  PSZCZYNA

    Favorite thing: The town centre is a market square (Rynek), one of the oldest and most beautiful in southern Poland. It is surrounded by meticulously renovated tenement houses dating from the 18th and 19 centuries. Believe me - it's lovely place especially on sunny days.
