The Soviet Army Cemetery in Bielsko-Biała


The Soviet Army Cemetery is located at Lwowska Street. Most of the Soviet soldiers who fought against the Germans in the battle for Podbeskidzie in 1945 are buried in 300 individual graves and 21 mass graves. Altogether, 15340 were killed in the battle. Originally, for political and propaganda reasons the Communist authorities located the cemetery (together with the memorial) at a controversial place - opposite the Cathedral.

Bielsko-Biała
Today's Liberty Square (Plac Wolności) in Bielsko-Biala is one of the two town markets of Biała Krakowska. It has an approximately rectangular shape measuring 75 by 40 m. The square was laid out in the late eighteenth century. 11 Listopada Street runs along its southern frontage. It is the main promenade and shopping street in Bielsko-Biala. The paved square is partly a pedestrian zone, and partly a pay car park and a taxi rank.

The Hotel „Under the Eagle”, located in the historic centre of Biała Krakowska, is a four-storey building erected at the beginning of the 20th century. Its architecture is a combination of Secession, Baroque and Classicism. Nowadays, since the 1990s it has been an office building and a shopping centre. Undoubtedly, the most magnificent part of the hotel is the splendid Redoute Hall – one of the most elegant of this kind in Poland.

The Church of Divine Providence is one of the most beautiful examples of the late and Neobaroque architecture in southern Poland. It was built in the second half of the 18th century, yet many elements were added during the 19th century rebuilding works. Attention shall be paid to the elegant façade with two towers. Inside the church a beautiful Rococo pulpit in the shape of a boat and the interior mainly from the 19th century have been preserved.
Bielsko-Biała
In the eighteenth century, Biała lay on the south-western edge of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. As a recently established town, it attracted entrepreneurial evangelicals who in neighbouring Cieszyn Silesia did not possess the freedom of professing their faith as well as of erecting their own churches. After the partition act of 1772 and the 1781 Patent of Toleration evangelicals were allowed to build a church, and they quickly seized that opportunity. In 1792-1798, an elegant Classicist building was erected, which is still the pride of Bielsko-Biala.
Bielsko-Biała
The House "Under the Frogs" is one of the textbook examples of Polish Secession. The building located on the corner of the Wojska Polskiego Square, (the former White Market), in front of the Martin Luther Lutheran Church, has a fairytale architecture. It is known primarily for the portal, which is part of the sculptural composition of the two feasting frogs, one of which, leaning against the barrel, holds a glass, and smokes a pipe, while the other plays the mandolin.

Gastronomy
Bielsko-Biała
W miejscu w którym powstała Restauracja "Mały Wiedeń" istniała niegdyś Karczma i punkt wymiany zaprzęgów na trakcie Wiedeń-Kraków-Lwów. Ścierało się tu wiele kultur: żydowska, czeska, niemiecka, polska, węgierska... Wielonarodowość i wielokulturowość ówczesnego Bielska pozwoliła zaliczyć go do grona szczęśliwców mianowanych w Europie chlubną nazwą "Mały Wiedeń". Także za sprawą architektury czy obyczajowości opartej na spokoju i radości.
