Where Mona Restaurant was established
The construction of the manor house, where the Mona Restaurant is located today, dates back to 1736.
The building was erected by the Cistercian Order in late Baroque style with a mansard roof, characteristic for that period. Its shape has been preserved to this day, and after a thorough renovation, it gained a new shine.
The place has witnessed many historical events throughout its history. The place has witnessed many historical events throughout its history. After the first reconstruction carried out by the monks, its interiors were decorated with the works of the Baroque fresco master Franz Sebastiani. At present, they are in the museum in Pszczyna, which has protected the valuable paintings from total destruction, while the building was in ruins in modern times.
Currently, the Cistercian manor house, together with the adjacent grounds and paddock after the equestrian centre, was purchased in 2016 by the investor, Pamira Investment. In 2020, the long-awaited renovation and construction works, also by the local community, began. Historically, the building had a characteristic wide staircase, which has been preserved and restored and now leads to the restaurant rooms on the first floor. On the ground floor, rooms have been created which are connected to an outdoor, heated terrace
You will also find here one of the few in the Silesian region Humidor, where you can enjoy cigars and quality spirits.
