The St Hyacinth Church in the district of Rozbrak in
Bytom was built between 1908 and 1911. It was erected
near the former chapel, which was dedicated to this
holy monk. The neo-Romanesque church was modeled
somewhat on the cathedral in German Limburg. The
facades were built of sandstone slabs. The church is a
three-nave basilica with two 57-meter tall towers on
either side of the facade. There is is a crypt of Saint
The Upper Silesian Museum in Bytom operates in two
buildings: a modernist one, from the interwar period, and
an older one, built in the historicist style that emerged in
the late nineteenth century. The latter was originally the
seat of the District Office. Nowadays, concerts are held in
the most representative hall of the District Office, which is
decorated with stucco and colorful stained-glass windows.
The concerts attract music lovers from all over Silesia.
The Upper Silesian Museum in Bytom continues the
traditions of the local museum. It was founded in the
early twentieth century by members of the Historical
and Museum Society of Bytom (Beuthener Geschichtsund Museumsverein). The museum has numerous
exhibits in its collections which comprise archeology,
ethnography, history, art, history and nature. Exhibitions
can be seen in the modernist building at Sobieskiego
Street and in the neo-Gothic building of the former
District Office at Korfantego Street.
The New Jewish Cemetery at Piekarska Street in Bytom
is one of the few active cemeteries in Silesia. It was
established in the 60s of the nineteenth century, during
the industrial boom in Bytom, which resulted in the
influx of Jews into the city. In the cemetery, there are
almost 1500 graves. Eight hundred burials have survived,
including those of the distinguished inhabitants of
Bytom, such as the families of the Loewich and
Friedlaender families. A lapidary was created from the
tombstones from the old Bytom cemetery.
The Bytom Mater Dolorosa Cemetery is one of the
most beautiful and richest in sepulchral art monuments
of the necropoles in Upper Silesia. It was founded in
the late 60s of the nineteenth century. It is located at
Piekarska Street, which runs from the city center to the
north. In 1882, a Neo-Gothic chapel, designed by Hugo
Heer, was erected on the cemetery. In the following
decades, well-known inhabitants of Bytom were buried
here. Their graves are decorated with beautiful
The Cellars of the Gorywoda family are the oldest surviving
traces of medieval Bytom. We can find them under the
modern shopping pavilion at the corner of the Market
Square and Strażacka Street. There is now a popular
restaurant in the cellars. Visitors to the restaurant can touch
the thirteenth-century walls, made of dolomite slabs and
pass under the Gothic portals. Until the middle of the last
century, a baroque house of the Gorywodas stood over the
