The Historic Mine "Rozbark" in Bytom

For many decades, tempered glass panels of the windows of the buildings of the coal mine "Rozbark" in Bytom greeted all coming to the city from Chorzów. The mine was put into operation in 1863 and ceased to work in 2004. The windows were dismantled, but a few historic, brick buildings have been preserved, including a century-old pithead building at the helm. Thanks to revitalization its impressive interior will be adapted to the Dance Centre.

The present church of the Holy Spirit in Bytom was built in the early eighteenth century, but the first, wooden chapel stood in this place probably already at the turn of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. For centuries, the temple belonged to the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, which had a hospital in the vicinity. The building was erected on an octagonal plan, harking back to the chapel of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The edifice and its interior are a beautiful example of the Baroque style.
The Church of Saint Adalbert, located at Plac Klasztorny (Monastery Square) in Bytom, is closely related to the 750- year history of the Bytom Franciscans, who were probably brought here in 1258. For centuries, Saint Nicholas was the patron of the church. Saint Adalbert became the patron after the Second World War. The present church is a baroque building with a Gothic choir. The interior also is in the Baroque style.
“Kronika” ("Chronicle"), which is part of the Bytom Cultural Center, was established in 1991. The activities of this institution are beyond an ordinary gallery itself. It combines various fields of art - painting, printmaking, architecture, film, theater, music - into one artistic message. In 2006, the institution underwent reorganization. The center was also renovated. Moreover, the gallery goes beyond art. It runs a bike rental shop.
Bytom is fortunate to have one of the largest complexes of historic Secession architecture. A Striking example of this style is the building of the Bolesław Chrobry Fourth Secondary School situated at the Władysław Sikorski Square. The building was erected by Carl Brugger, a Bytom building counselor in the early twentieth century. It distinguishes itself by an avant-corps decorated with the coat of arms of Bytom and a small clock tower crowned with a dome.
Bytom is one of the oldest cities in Silesia, which is reflected in its urban layout rooted in medieval times. The market square is the center from whose corners the streets run out. Remnants of the old fortification are the names of streets - Murarska (Mansonry) and Wałowa (Earthwork). The development of the city in the nineteenth century and the destruction of the last century meant that most of the current buildings in the center were erected in the Art Nouveau and neo-historicist styles.
