    Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski  - the town of Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski ranks second in the Świętokrzyskie voivodeship. The cityscape is dominated by the collegiate church of St Michael the Archangel founded by prince Janusz Ostrogski in 1614. 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.

    Denkowski Square – the former district of Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski which is characterized by Baroque church of Saint Stanisław the Bishop Church from 16. century, rebuilt in 18.-19 centuries.

    Częstocice -  worth to see is 19th –century classical Palace of  Wielopolski Family which is situated in

     

    18th-century park. Nowadays, the historical building is used as Historical and Archeological Museum. One should notice a factory estates of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the sugar – refinery Częstocice.

    Szewna – a unique monument is a metal gate with an openwork design. The original portal was made by steelworkers of Ostrowieckie Plant and was used as a kiosk at a trade fair in Nizhny Novgorod in 1896. The parish of  Szewna received it as a gift 10 years later. Decorated with a cross on the top and shields with crossed hammers, crown and sash and forms a miner and steelworker at the top of every side.
