The Presidential Castle
The Presidential Castle in Wisla Czarne was built in years 1929 - 1930 in a place of a previously burnt Habsburgian hunting castle. The Presidential castle was a gift from the people of Silesia for Ignacy Moscicki, the President of the Republic of Poland back then, and his successors.

Efforts to bring the castle back under the care of the President of the Republic of Poland began in the early 90s. Thanks to the support of the town council as well as some local organizations they were successful and the castle went back under the Presidential care in 2002. Aleksander Kwasniewski, the President back in 2002, initiated a complex renovation of the castle, so it could  match the modern requirements for a Presidential residence.
