Route chronicle


The Industrial Revolution that took place a few centuries ago also affected the bread production. The pace of work contributed to the fact that there was no time to share it in the traditional manner. Almost one hundred years ago, American Otto Frederick Rohwedder, generally considered to be the inventor of the industrial sliced bread, patented a machine for automatic bread slicing. Nevertheless, problems with maintaining freshness of such bread discouraged him from starting the production on a larger scale. However, he resumed the concept and 82 years ago he designed a production line which first cut bread and then packed it tightly.

Radzionków
The mini open air museum in Radzionków, with a small exhibition of old mining equipment and a quaint chapel arranged in an old transformer station, was established at the beginning of this century. It is a reminder of the local coal mine, which under the name "Radzionkau Grube" was founded in the 70s of the nineteenth century and operated as the mine “Radzionków” and later as "Silesian Insurgents" until 2001.
Bytom
Lovers of old cars should seek out in Bytom the following address: 98 Strzelców Bytomskich Street. In the building of the voivodeship training centre for drivers one can find the Museum of Motorization and Technology, in which there are three exhibition pavillons presenting old cars, wheelers as well as military vehicles. They come from a few Silesian institutions and private collections. The oldest vehicle is a Buick from 1928.
Piekary Śląskie
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.
Radzionków
As in many other places in Poland, there is also a legend about Radzionków. The legend tells the story about Saint Adalbert, who was preached the Word of in the contemporary town. The fact is, however, that the first church was built here very early - probably at the beginning of the fourteenth century. But the present-day church of Saint Adalbert was built in 1875. The building itself and its interior were decorated in the neoGothic style.
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.
Radzionków
Centrum Dokumentacji Deportacji Górnoślązaków do ZSRR w 1945 roku mieści się w budynku byłego dworca kolejowego w Radzionkowie. Placówka pełni różne funkcje w obszarze edukacji, kultury, historii, a także zachowywania dziedzictwa kulturowego. Stała ekspozycja przybliża historię deportacji i uświadamia zwiedzającym, że 1945 rok – czas końca wojny i wyzwolenia, dla wielu śląskich rodzin był początkiem gehenny związanej z masową wywózką na wschód. Wielu Górnoślązaków pozostało na radzieckiej ziemi na zawsze. Wystawa w interesujący sposób łączy ślady przeszłości w postaci eksponatów z nowoczesnymi rozwiązaniami multimedialnymi.
