The Workers' Colony " Kaufhaus" in Ruda Śląska Nowy Bytom

The workers settlement "Kaufhaus" is located on the border of two districts of Ruda Śląska, namely Nowy Bytom and Chebzia. The housing estate was built by the owners of the still existing steel mill “Pokój” The oldest multi-family houses called “familoks” were constructed in the second half of the 19th century. We can see them in Piotra Niedurnego Street. At the beginning of the last century, a shopping center “Kaufhaus” was erected for steelworkers and their families, from which the settlement took its modern name.

The monumental structure of the out-of-operation blast furnace of the steel mill “Pokój” is one of the distinctive and eyecatching industrial facilities in the district of Ruda Śląska, bearing the name of Nowy Bytom. The future of the furnace is hazy. It can be considered as an attraction and adapted to the needs of tourism, or be demolished. It is worth mentioning that in the interwar period, the steel mill was the largest on the Polish territory.

Nowy Bytom, popularly known as Fryna in the Silesian language because of its former name – Frynsztad, is a district of Ruda Śląska. It is situated in the eastern part of the city. The settlement evolved only in the nineteenth and twentieth century. In 1911, a monumental church of Saint Paul was built in the center of the village. Architect Johannes Franziskus Klomp created an uncommon work, representing mainly the neo-Romanesque style, together with some early Christian and Byzantine elements.

The workers' colony "Karmańskie" (its name comes from the shaft Karl Emanuel) in Ruda Śląska is one of the nicer examples of sponsored building in Upper Silesia. The construction of the colony was initiated by the Ballestrem family in the late 19th century. The Ballestrems had a large mine "Brandenburg" (later "Wawel") and a coke plant to the south of Ruda. Impressive residential buildings for miners and administration staff still stand at Wolności and Raciborska Streets.
