Description forthcoming


The building of the old train station in Katowice was erected at the beginning of the twentieth century, and for many years it was one of the flagships of Upper Silesia. In the course of time, the railroad station was becoming less and less sufficient for the needs of the growing passenger traffic. This situation resulted in the several extensions of the building by adding upper floors, and after the Second World War, it was decided to build a new facility, which was opened in 1972. Currently, the old train station building belongs to a private company.
Katowice developed from a small village to a major urban industrial center over several decades, from the late eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century. The oldest and most important urban axis is the line connecting the three squares: Wolności, Rynek (Market Square) and Szramka. Of these three sites, the Market Square was laid out as the firSt It was a place which for several centuries was an important transportation hub. The oldest urban axis is lined with a number of stately edifices, including the synagogue, the church of Saint Mary’s, etc.
In 1984, the reactivated Silesian Museum in Katowice was moved into the impressive building of the former Grand Hotel at today’s 3 Korfanty Street. The construction of the building was financed by Max Wiener, an entrepreneur from Katowice in 1899. It was designed by Ignatz Gruenfeld or Gerd Zimmermann. The building is made of brick, giving it an elegant, neo-Renaissance form with decorative gables and projections.
The Evangelical Church of the Resurrection is the oldest stone church in Katowice. It was built in the years 1856-1858 – and it is the oldest building in the city. Later, it was expanded and restored many times. It is a neo-Romanesque shrine, also referring to the early Christian architecture. Inside the church it is worth noting the original pulpit, stained glass windows in the chancel and valuable organ.
The Educational House of the People's Libraries Society at Francuska Street in Katowice is one of the most spectacular examples of modernist architecture created in interwar Poland. The building was erected in the years 1929-1934, and the designers were Stanislaw Tabeński and Józef Rybicki. The edifice presents all the features of a modern building, recommended by the master modernists - French architect, Le Corbusier.
Katowice is the second city (after Warsaw) in Poland which boasts the largest number of high-rise buildings. The tradition of such constructions in the capital of Upper Silesia dates back to the interwar period, when the first “skyscraper” in the country was erected in Katowice. Currently, the record high building is the skyscraper "Altus", which is 125 meters tall and has a total area of about 69 000 square meters.
