    Description

     

    The town of Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski ranks second in the Świętokrzyskie voivodeship. It borders on a large expanse of the Iłżycka Forest in the north and on the uplandish territory of the Opatów region in the south. In its 400-year-old history tradition intermingles with modernity.
    The historical monuments in Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski range from sacral buildings, sites connected with wartime dramatic events, to industrial heritage constructions and unique installations of the old ironworks.
    The cityscape is dominated by the collegiate church of St Michael the Archangel founded by prince Janusz Ostrogski in 1614. It was remodeled after the invasion led by prince George II Rákóczy of Transylvania and consecrated again in 1672. During the interwar period of the 20th century the church was provided with Baroque appearance according to a project designed by Stefan Szyller. Its main nave was raised and extended. Lateral naves as well as a burial chapel, sacristy and a church tower were added. A new stone high alter was built by Józef Jamroz in 1944.
    The Baroque church of St Stanisław the Bishop from the late 16th century is also worth a visit. Erected in the Denków quarter in 1581, it was founded by Stanisław and Kaliksta Michowski. The wooden church was dismantled  in 1691 and a new brick church in Baroque style was built on the Latin cross pattern. The late-Baroque high alter contains a picture of the Holy Virgin Mary with Child from the turn of the 17th century as well as pictures featuring St Barbara and St Stanisław.
    In the same quarter of Denków is located a cemetery with neoclassical chapel of the Kotkowski family. Noteworthy monuments of architecture include the building of the Polish Post from the 1920s, a bit neglected building of the railway station raised in the 1880s, and city residences from the turn of the 19th century (ul. Siennieńska 14 and 37, ul. Wardyńskiego 26).
    In the south-western quarter of the city Częstocice stands an interesting palace of the Wielopolski family (late 19th c.) surrounded by a old park. It now houses the Historical and Archaeological Museum.
    Worth a visit is also the post-industrial area of the Old Ironworks as well as  the former sugar factory of Częstocice, workers lodgings in the lower town, and the wooden factory church of the Holy Heart of Jesus erected in the Zakopane style in the years 1931-32. The church is located on the regional itinerary of the Timber Architecture Trail.
