Church of the Transfiguration in Staniszów
Staniszów [staˈniʂuf] (German: Stonsdorf) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Podgórzyn, within Jelenia Góra County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It lies approximately 6 km (4 mi) south of Jelenia Góra, and 97 km (60 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław. The village has a population of 640.
Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. There used to be a Bismarck tower on the village's highest point, Prudelberg Hill, erected in 1901 when the area was part of Germany. The monument was destroyed after 1945; its base has been preserved. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles. The herbal bitter Echt Stonsdorfer, still produced in Germany, originated in this village.
