Get the bus to this area on a clear day and wander round - the architecture is well worth a visit! However, in the middle of the neighbourhood there’s only really the church to ‘do’. But walk out to the Wilson Gallery for some wonderful...More

A must if you visit Katowice. The brick houses make the district special, and its a pleasure to walk around. Apart from walking and having a coffee, not much to do, unless having a guide.

Brick town, old and historic architecture, but few cafés and restaurants. Beautiful historic church.

You can stroll here with admiring the architecture of good times of Katowice where coal miners lived with their families. They admired the values of having a large family and faith in God. You can visit also St Anne's church nearby.

Workers' housing estate, a pearl of social housing architecture; designed in the early twentieth century. Lovely place, really worth a visit. I'm from Katowice, I can assure you it's the place that will show you how people in Silesia used to live in the past.

It is hard to believe that this is a real world not the scenography from the movie; only cars on the street will remind you the time. It is a magic place with great atmosphere full of peace and harmony. Unbeliveable, astonish frames stays on...More
