Full description
The first recorded history about pottery activities in the Bolesławiec region date back to the end of the 14th century. Since then, the region became know as a very important area of pottery production. The Professional Pottery School opened in 1893 with principal dr Wilhelm Pukal, technical director of the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin. Thanks to his improvements, the city of Boleslawiec (former Bunznlau) became famous as the "city of good clay". You will visit one of the best local manufacturers observing the skilled workers at the different stages of production. Especially spectacular is the decoration, all of which is done by hand with special stamps with the emblematic pattern called peacock's eye. Afterwards, there is some time for shopping before heading to the next stop, a local restaurant for lunch.

On the way back you will have a chance to see one of the biggest wooden churches in Europe. The outstanding Church of Peace in Jawor was built during the socio-political context of the 17th century during the religious wars and persecution of the Protestants. It was constructed under very strict regulations and it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
