Piekary Śląskie
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 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.
Piekary Śląskie
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.

The Liberation Mound is the highest point of Piekary Śląskie. It rises to 356 meters above sea level. From the top one can see a panorama of the four corners of the world. With good visibility people armed with binoculars can admire the distant ranges of the Tatra Mountains, lying more than 160 km away. Closer you can see blocks of apartments and church towers and chimneys of Zagłębie Dąbrowskie, a region of Upper Silesia. The mound was between1932 and 1937 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Polish victory under Vienna and the 15th anniversary of the incorporation of Silesia into Poland.
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.
