The Zieleniewski Manor House


The beginnings of the manor can be dated back to the 13th century, however the first brick building was most probably erected when Trzebinia belonged to Dziersław Karwacjan (2nd half of the 14th century). Earlier estate buildings were made of wood. The last proprietors were Marian Zieleniewski and his wife Paulina, coming from Borysław; their name has left in the manor’s name till now. They bought Trzebinia estate in 1920.


The manor represents several characteristic features of Old Polish manors; for example, a broken mansard roof (also known as a Polish roof) and a four-column portico. On the basis of preserved records, it is assumed that this shape was given to the manor probably not later than in the 1st half of the 17th century. Earlier, however, it was a residential tower, which served as a watchtower on the road between Olkusz and Okleśna, where lead and silver ore was transported.


The Zieleniewskis purchased the manor in a much neglected condition; therefore they carried out extensive redecoration between 1925 and 1929. By the way, they changed the arrangement of rooms and thoroughfares inside the manor, and built a terrace on the east side of the manor and a balcony on the first floor.


In reply to a civil initiative that attempts to save the deteriorating building, in 1983 the estate manor together with the lot where it is situated have been repurchased from the Zieleniewski family by the Treasury. Renovation works started in 1990. At present, the Zieleniewskis manor belonging to the commune of Trzebinia is a place of numerous concerts, exhibitions and meetings with interesting people organized by the Trzebinia Culture Center. Also, the manor offers guest rooms of high standard, and stylish basements hold a restaurant and a coffee house.

St. Mary's Shrine in Płoki


The first brick church on the Zagajnik hill in Płoki was raised at the beginning of the 14th century (a parish was erected in 1314, and the first church could have been built in that period, whereas the existence of the parish in Płoki is confirmed by the Peter’s pence census from 1326). After a fire of 1793, the church was rebuilt in a classicistic style as a much more modest temple, which was pulled down in 1949 because of its poor technical condition. The building of a present church was completed in 1954. See more.


The most precious treasure of the church is a miraculous painting of the Virgin Mary and a Child from the 2nd half of the 15th century (author unknown). It is the oldest painting in Trzebinia. It was painted on a wooden plank using a tempera technique in a way imitating the Byzantine iconographic style of the Hodegetria, with an acanthus motive imprinted on a chalky and gilded background. The fame of the painting contributed to its coronation with papal crowns in 1982. The second valuable item – a full-size crucifix from the beginnings of the 14th century – is now located in the church in Psary.


The shrine to the Virgin Mary – the patron of Polish Workmen’s Families is one of important centres of the Marian cult in the Kraków archdiocese, whose fame can be traced back at least to the 1st half of the 17th century. In 2007, the shrine was placed (likewise the shrine to the Virgin Mary of Fatima on Salwator, Trzebinia) on a route of an international pilgrimage trail from Częstochowa to Mariazell in Austria.

The trail leads straight along Florkiewicz Street then nearby bus stop Młoszowa Góra I (Młoszowa Hill I) it turns right behind a little bridge to Góra Bartoska Street and leads further to Góra Bartoska overgrown by interesting mix of many tree and plant species. The trees on the top of the hill and the fields on the east side of the hill make the way not easy to pass; that is why the trail turns back towards Florkiewicz Street.

By the bus stop Młoszowa Góra II the trail turns right to Karniowiecka Street. Along with the last buildings of the hill a tarmac road is over and trail changes into a dirt road kept in good order. On a crossroad you have to turn right to go to the nature reserve Ostra Góra created to protect Carpathians beeches. Among young trees that overgrow Ostra Góra there also are fancy bent beeches above 200 year-old, moreover, along the ridge of the hill you can find traces of former development heading and ruins called locally "Owczarnia".

The trail leads to the East through a path at the end of the reserveand then it goes to Ostra Góra Street in Psary. Behind the bus stop Ostra Góra the trial turns left into a path that leads to the hill Bialny Dół in Psary where once limestone was extracted.

Park and palace complex in Młoszowa

The works lasted dozen or so years and were carried out to lend credence to the made up story and chivalric tradition of the Florkiewicz family, which originated from the middle class. In the 1850s, buildings designed at the beginning of the 19th century were added a stylized entrance gateway and a large pond in the front and the entire area together with a park was surrounded with a rough stone wall. The reconstruction of the very manor started in the end of the 1850s. On January 11th, 1862, the “reconstructed” castle was consecrated and made available to visitors. Architecture details, window shape, towers, epitaphs and a stone plaque put up on the northern wall of a loggia ‘commemorating’ the events made up by the owner were supposed to suggest further changes in the form and history of the building.


The entire southern part of the castle built by Juliusz Florkiewicz does not exist these days, because after taking over the possessions by the grandson of the Florkiewicz family - Juliusz Potocki – in 1898, the residence was extensively rebuilt taking the then fashionable French design into consideration by an architect from Kraków - Zygmunt Hendel. Also Baszta Kozacka, Rondel Hajduków and other buildings did not survive, pulled down after the World War II.


Since the end of construction works of Florkiewicz, visitors were invited to the castle. No matter whether they believe in the authenticity of the story presented by the owner or not, they visited the Młoszowa possessions in great numbers to see the “monuments” reserved there. The owner of the manor himself anonymously published in ‘Tygodnik Ilustrowany’ in 1865 a fictitious story of the castle in an attempt at lending credence to its existence and raising the importance of the Młoszowa possessions. People who visited the castle left their entries in a visitor’s book. While reading them, we can conclude that the “ancient” castle in Młoszowa was found unique, even if not because of its slightly suspicious historic value. It was considered a charming and hospitable place that evoked many events from the history of Poland.


Currently, the park-palace complex has a shape of a neo-Gothic object consisting of a manor and an adjacent chapel situated in a 17-hectare park full of old trees, which was established in 1824. The park is surrounded by a wall with a tower and the Belwederski bastion. The park-palace complex in Młoszowa is one of the points of the Renaissance trail in the Lesser Poland. For more information on the project, see here.

The first mentions on Trzebinia date back to the 12th century. As far as the locality itself is concerned, a parish which probably was established in the 13th century is known to have existed there as early as in 1325. The name of the settlement derives from the Polish verb ‘trzebić' [to thin a forest or a tree stand].


Initially, the aforesaid verb meant ‘forest clearance' so as to gain some areas for arable crops. In 1415, the king Wladislaus Jagiełło conferred upon Trzebinia the Magdeburg and the mining law which governed the rules of winning zinc and lead ores. Nicolaus Kezinger became the owner of the estate; in the second half of the 16th century, the estate mentioned was taken over by George Schilchra [who afterwards assumed the name Trzebinski]. The said family was wielding the locality till the beginning of the 19th century. Successive owners were, among others, Charles Estreicher, Caroline Pichocka and August Raczynski.

 In 1817, Trzebinia was incorporated by decision of the Senate of the Free City of Cracow. The successive development of Trzebinia was due to the railway line, led up in 1847, as well as to an intensive development of various branches of industry.


In the 19th century, the areas of the Dabrowa Basin and the Cracow Republic constituted the largest European and the second world-wide [after the USA] centre of zinc mining and smelting industry in Europe. Trzebinia was situated in the Cracow Republic as a part of the district of Free City of Cracow. The period of the 19th and the 20th centuries was characterised by an intensive development of industry, especially of the raw materials branch. There were commissioned coal mines, zinc smelters and glass works.

At the end of the 19th century, there was inaugurated the first local calamine pit mine in Trzebionka. Thereafter, another industrial objects, among others the ‘Zbyszek' coal mine, a pump fittings plant, an iron foundry, a stone processing plant, brickyards, an oil refinery, a wood preservation plant, a cement plant, a power plant and a vegetable oil products factory, started their operation.


Ended the World War Two and reborn the local industry, Trzebinia became one of the most industrialised towns in Poland. The economic transformations, that have taken place of late, have contributed to a certain limitation of the heavy-industry character of Trzebinia. Despite an appreciable degree of industrialisation, as much as 43% of the commune area is wooded. The wooded areas are an excellent shelter for a large number of rare plants [Turk's cap lily, Streptopus amplexifolius, smooth carline, Veratrum lobelianum] and animals [boar, racoon dog, black grouse, crane, otter, beaver].





The flora of Trzebinia consists in 43% of forests. One can spot here different types of forests, water rushes, xerothermic grass and plenty of protected species of plants as well as the profusion of wildlife including animals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and insects. These are the places that deserve special recommendation due to their natural, recreational and tourist values:


THE DULOWA PRIMEVAL FOREST is situated within the borders of the Jurassic Landscape Parks. In the Dulowa Primeval Forest the beavers settled in for good. Beaver - created wetlands known as fens make great habitat for new species of fauna and flora that have not appeared here up till the present day. In the Dulowa Primeval Forest it is also possible to find deer, fallow deer and boars.


BALATON RESERVOIR - the body of water placed in the heart of Trzebinia, in the disused quarry excavation. The surface of the first purity class water covers the area of approximately 3 hectares and the reservoir is on average 9,5 m deep. In the summer time it is used as a public open-air swimming-pool.


THE KOZI BRÓD is the longest river in Trzebinia. The Osowiec reservoir, which is situated on this river makes both, a well-equipped recreational resort and a perfect place for relaxation for the citizens of the commune.



THE CHECHŁO LAKE is the largest one in Trzebinia and makes a 54-hectare body of water. Some recreational and holiday resorts as well as water sports resorts are located here. All of them offer full catering services and water equipment rental.


THE "OSTRA GÓRA" NATURE RESERVE was founded to protect the Carpathian beech wood on the area of 7,22h. Standing timber is dominated by beeches aged 150-200 years old. About 15 species of endangered plants can be found in the reserve.


THE TRIASSIC ROCK IN BOLĘCIN is the nature monument of inanimate nature. Diploporous dolomite forms a rare monadnock mountain. Endangered species of plants grow at the bottom of the rock.


THE KARNIOWICE SINTER is a specific kind of rock, which is well-known, especially among geologists. This rare example of freshwater limestone was discovered in 1870 by a botanist from Cracow named Marian Raciborski.
