The Fortifications of the Fortified Area of Silesia

In the area of today's Piekary Śląskie there are very interesting Polish fortifications from the time before the Second World War. These are fortified shelters of the Fortified Area of Silesia, which was to defend the industrial region against German aggression. The preserved 24 fortifications were part of the point-defence 298 of the combat group "Brzeziny" and of the point-defence 304.7. In the unique shelter located in the district of Brzeziny the Association for Fortification Monuments "Pro Fortalicium" set up a museum chamber.

The church in Bobrowniki is the oldest monument of wooden architecture in the district of Będzin. The church was built at the beginning of the sixteenth century. Alongside with a stone enclosure and a cemetery the church is on the List of heritage registers. After the construction of a new church in Bobrowniki, the church fell into disuse, and is currently under renovation. It is located on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.

The church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Piekary Śląskie is located in Brzeziny Śląskie, the youngest district of the city. This is a large, brick building with lots of stone finishing elements. The sanctuary was built during the difficult years of the First World War, according to the design drawn up by Ludwig Schneider. He gave the church a neo-Romanesque-Gothic shape. Stylistically, the interior is not homogeneous, either.

Brzeziny is currently a district of Piekary Śląskie. It developed as a settlement in the nineteenth century as a result of the influx of workers to the local mines. In 1880, by the decree of the king of Prussia, the village became the seat of the commune, which resulted in building the headquarters for the communal authorities. The building was probably erected in 1913. It served many purpose, for some time even being the town hall. Today, it belongs to the Communal Water and Sewage Company
