    Pszczyna
    After the conquest by Prussia, Silesia was divided into districts. A number of the royal officials appeared in towns and cities, which at the same time meant that some privileges of the local lords were cancelled. Landrats - Prussian governors appointed by the king – took over power in the districts. The present building of the District Office was erected not before the 80s of the nineteenth century. Previously, the District Office occupied successively two other buildings.
