The Bytomska Street in Piekary Śląskie is the axis around
which the life of the city revolves. The artery is almost 5
km long. It starts in the south, near the border with
Bytom, and then runs almost straight north to end up in
the district of Kozłowa Góra. In this street we can find the
most important and most interesting objects in Piekary
Śląskie including the surgical hospital (formerly the “Unia
Bracka” Hospital), the city council, the Schaeffers’
manufacturing facility of sacred art and the Sanctuary
with the Calvary.
The building of the King John III Sobieski Secondary
Comprehensive School in Piekary Śląskie sited at
Gimnazjalna Street is a fine example of Art Nouveau
architecture, which was popular in the autonomous
province of Silesia in the interwar period. The building
with a distinctive, rounded glass projection was
designed by world famous architect, Karol Schayer, and
was built in 1930-1933.
The Piekarska Calvary is one of the most famous
pilgrimage destinations in Poland. It was built in the late
nineteenth century on the hill of Cerekwica, which is
adjacent to the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity and Social
Justice in Piekary Śląskie. It consists of Stations of the Way
of the Cross, a Gothic Calvary Church of the Resurrection,
and a number of other chapels and stations associated
with the subject of Passion.
The basilica in Piekary Śląskie is one of the largest
sanctuaries in Silesia, and also one of the better-known
centers of Marian devotion across the country. The local
Shrine of Our Lady of Charity and Social Justice is
primarily known for organizing May pilgrimages for men
and August ones for women, whose tradition goes back to
the interwar period. Each of them numbers from 80 to 120
thousand pilgrims, mostly from Upper Silesia.
As the process of the revitalization of brownfield sites is
still underway, not abandoned or underused industrial
and commercial facilities have been redeveloped or
reused. One of the first examples of the adaptation of an
industrial plant for residential purposes is Bolko Loft
within the premises of the former Mining and
Metallurgical Plant “Biały Orzeł” - "White Eagle" in
Bytom. The project was immediately recognized, and in
2006, it was selected in the competition -"Poland. Icons
of architecture”, as one of the 20 most interesting
architectural projects in Poland after 1989.
The water tower standing at Oświęcimska Street in
Bytom, is worth of interest due to its innovative design
and form, which is an expression of functionalism, which
at the time of its construction was a fashionable
architectural style. The tower was erected in 1934-1935
on pillars and on deep foundations, which protect the 44-
meter tall building from the effects of mining tremors.
The tower was built of reinforced concrete and, in
particular, of high-quality portland cement.
