Full description
Journey through the delightful landscapes of Lower Silesia, full of old castles and churches, and steeped in noble history. Visit the UNESCO-listed Churches of Peace in Jawor and Świdnica, valued for their unique architecture. Discover the Książ Castle and its secret network of tunnels, remnants from its role as a Nazi headquarter during WWII. 

Travel to the Churches of Peace, which were UNESCO World Heritage Listed because of their masterful architecture and unique construction with perishable materials like wood, straw, and clay. The Church of Peace in Świdnica is additionally the largest wooden church in Europe. 

Make a visit to the castle in Książ, the largest castle in Silesia. It was built in the 13th century, but plays a more important role in modern history as the castle had been selected to be Hitler's headquarters. Discover the mysterious network of tunnels, corridors, and chambers bored in solid rock around the castle — to this day it is not entirely clear for what they were supposed to serve. In the basement, it was planned to launch a modern telephone exchange, with a radio listening department, and the Radio Free Europe jammer really worked there.
