The Archdiocese Museum in Katowice is housed in the building of the Archbishop’s Curia at the Jordana Street, near the Archcathedral of Christ the King. It has been operating since 1975, but its origins date back to the interwar period. The most valuable part of the museum collections are monuments of religious art, but the institution also collects books, medals and memorabilia of the "Solidarity". Among the pictures displayed here are the works attributed to Raphael, Poussin or Zurbaran.
The building of the Faculty of Theology of the University of Silesia in Katowice is located at Jordana Street. It represents the latest architectural style if Upper Silesia. The building was erected in the early years of this century. It was designed by Jack Kuś, Tadeusz Orzechowski, Jerzy Stysiał and Henry kWilkosz. This project received the Grand Prix in the competition "Architecture of the Year of the Silesian Voivodeship" in 2004.
The Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice was being built over nearly 30 years. The construction work started in 1927, and the ceremony of its consecration took place in 1955. The building was built in the Classicist style, with a monumental colonnade in front of the main entrance and a distinctive central dome. This dome is 64 meters tall and is lower than the one originally designed by 38 m. The church is the largest arch cathedral in Poland.
The cemetery located at present Sienkiewicza Street in Katowice was set up for the newly established Roman Catholic parish of Saints Peter and Paul at the beginning of the last century. Over time, the cemetery has become one of the main graveyards of the city, where people especially meritorious for Silesia and Polish have been buried, among them, Stanisław Ligoń, Zbigniew Cybulski, Alfred Szklarski and Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. There are a lot of interesting gravestones and a Modernist cemetery chapel in the graveyard.
The church of Saints Peter and Paul in Katowice was built in
the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, as the seat
of the second Roman Catholic parish in the city. The
designer of the church was Joseph Ebers, a building advisor to the diocese from Wrocław.
The neo-Gothic church is made of brick, on a Latin cross
plan. Interestingly, in the years 1925-1957, it served as the
cathedral church of the diocese of Katowice
