Cieszyn / Těšín Silesia

?? Cieszyn Silesia is a region characterized by cultural and regional distinctiveness, its inhabitants have a strong sense of their own identity, certainly because they were once the lands of the Duchy of Cieszyn, concentrated around the city of Cieszyn and the Olza River. The charming city of Cieszyn, full of monuments and at the same time open to contemporary cultural events, is not the only place worth visiting during vacation trips, although it is certainly the first association of most tourists. Therefore, it is worth reaching for a guide to see the beauty of sacred and secular monuments, admire unique natural nooks and crannies, sometimes hidden in smaller towns of the region. One should also realize that Cieszyn Silesia is also Beskid health resorts, such as Wisła, Ustroń, Brenna, Trójwieś, and a town with traditions, with a turbulent history: Bielsko-Biała. Just as the brothers rejoiced when they unexpectedly met in Cieszyn, many of you will certainly be happy to meet friends in the Cieszyn region; These are areas that are eagerly visited regardless of age and interests, so everyone will find their place here. The Euroregion Śląsk Cieszyński is not only the former Duchy of Cieszyn, but also Jastrzębie-Zdrój and Godów. In our case, cross-border cooperation brought together two different historical regions.

?? Těšín Silesia is a term denoting the territory of the former Těšín Principality in Silesia (including all its former territories, which became independent estates, and with the territory of which the estates never belonged to the estates Bohumín). In the west, Těšín Silesia is bordered approximately by the Ostravice and Odra rivers (the border actually zigzagged along both rivers in places) and by the Bělá river in the east. The historical capital of the area is Cieszyn. Today, the territory is divided between the Czechia (approximately 56% of the former territory) and Poland (approximately 44% of the former territory). The territory of Těšín Silesia includes the eastern (Silesian) part of the city of Ostrava, the district of Karviná (Karviná, Havířov, Orlová, Bohumín and Český Těšín), part of the district of Frýdek-Místek (Frýdek, Třinec, Jablunkov, Hnojník) and the current Polish district breitling repliky of Cieszyn to Bielsko -Biała, which is half in Silesia (Bielsko belongs to Cieszyn) and half in Malopolska (Bělá). Těšín is part of the Moravian-Silesian Region (Czech part) and the Silesian Voivodeship (Polish part). Cross-border cooperation is mainly reflected in the project of the Euroregion “Těšínské Slezsko – Śląsk Cieszyński”.
