Cieszyn has two main tourist information centers, one on each side of the border. Both are useful for hotel and restaurant recommendations, planning outings, and figuring out transportation options, but each is much stronger on its respective part of town. Don't expect the Poles to have much info on the Czech side or vice-versa (in spite of the towns' shared EU "Euroregion" designation). On the Polish side, visit the Cieszyn Information Center (Rynek 1; tel. 33/479-42-49; www.cieszyn.pl). On the Czech side, try the Ceský Téšín Regional Information Center (Hlavní Trída 15; tel. 420-558-711-866; www.info.tesin.cz). There's also a tiny information center inside the castle complex on the Polish side (Zamkowa 3; tel. 33/851-08-21; www.cieszyn.pl). On our visit, the woman behind the desk could not speak English but had a few maps and brochures on the castle that she was happy to hand out.
