There are three Jewish cemeteries in today’s
Sosnowiec. The largest of them, located at
Gospodarcza Street, was established in the late
nineteenth century and is still being used. On
the cemetery we can encounter beautiful
examples of Jewish sepulchral art, such as the
ohel grave of Rabbi Meir Gitler. The oldest
cemetery in Sosnowiec is found in Modrzejów. It
may have been founded at the turn of the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The third
and the smallest cemetery are located at
The Church under the Invocation of Peter and Paul the Apostles in Mysłowice was built between 1875 and 1877. It was founded by a young evangelical community, which had been active in the city only since the mid-nineteenth century. The neo-Gothic church was built of brick. The interior has one nave with matronea and a small choir. The decoration mainly refers to neo-Gothic. In the nineteenth century, for several years, the parish administrator was Fr. Jerzy Badura, a meritorious Polish national activist in Silesia.
The chapel located in Mysłowice at the
present Krakowska Street is called the Jarlik
chapel. It is one of the city’s landmarks. In
1745, a small chapel was founded here by
Mr. and Mrs. Jarlik. They founded it because
of Prussian persecution. The authorities
put ban on traditional processions to the
places, which then lay across the Polish
Modern Powstańców Street in Mysłowice was founded in the nineteenth century, as a link of the city center with the train station, which was very important for its development. For many years, it was called Bahnhofstrasse, i.e. Station Street. Along the street there are historic buildings such as the Eclectic town hall, a neo-renaissance villa of the Kuder family, an Evangelical church, townhouses and the building of the former Emigration Agency with a distinctive passageway.
In the second half of the nineteenth century, a thorough reform of the judiciary was carried out in the Kingdom of Prussia. As a result, in 1878, Mysłowice became the seat of the Prussian Royal Court of the District, and in 1889, of the Royal Municipal Court. In the years 1895-1906, an impressive, Eclectic courthouse was erected in the city center (at the present-day Krakowska Street), at which a neo-Gothic prison building was constructed.
The church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in
Mysłowice was built in the late nineteenth
century. It was erected in the rapidly growing
industrial city, where the then existing parish
church could not accommodate the growing
number of the faithful. The brick building is neo-Gothic. It is a three-nave church with a transept
and a tower of up to 70 meters. Inside, it is
worthwhile to see figures of the 12 apostles
placed by the pillars.
