Castle Wisnicz
 Castle Wisnicz  Castle Wisnicz Wisnicz castle built around 1500. The castle flourishes till the Swedish invasion in 1655. The Swedes significantly damaged the building and ransacked its interiors, taking with them 150 carts filled with works of art and other valuables. The attempts at a restitution of the castle's former splendour fail and the castle never regained its former splendour. In 1831 the fire finally destroyed the castle. A reconstruction of the castle started in 1928. The outbreak of war in 1939 interrupts the works on the castle. The renovation started again in 1949. From 1991 the castle is renovated and maintained in good condition.
