Maciej Shaft

The Maciej mine shaft in Zabrze is a place that stands out on the map of Silesia with its excellent location, great cuisine and an interesting industrial interior. It is the only facility in the Silesian Voivodship, located at the same time on the Industrial Monuments Route and the 'Silesian Tastes' Culinary Trail. The Maciej mine shaft was honored twice by the General Conservator of Monuments for the well-kept monument. The object was created to promote the culture of the region, and especially the Silesian Metropolis.

The glass-roofed conference and banqueting hall is perfect for both conferences and banquets, and the courtyard area (10,000 m²) allows outdoor events to be held for up to 4,000 people. The complex also has a 3,000 m² parking area.

European and Silesian cuisine is served in the Maciej mine schaft Restaurant. The bistro, located on the ground floor of the complex, offers less official service and, in summer, grilled dishes served in the courtyard of the complex in the ChillOut area.

Restaurant 'Szyb Maciej' is a member of the 'Silesian Tastes' Culinary Trail.

Shaft "Maciej" is a complex of buildings of the former coal mine “Concordia” (later “Pstrowski”) situated in Maciejów, a district of Zabrze. Coal was already mined in this region in the first half of the nineteenth century. The history of the shaft dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century, when in the area of the mine "Concordia” the tenth shaft called the "Westschacht" was dug out. After 1945, it was renamed "Maciej". The complex had been operating until the parent mine was shut down. Today, we can visit a headframe, from which we can admire the panorama of the urrounding areas, buildings of the shaft top, a hoisting machine and a drinking water intake.
The present church of Saint Andrew the Apostle in Zabrze was built between 1863 and 1866.

The church of Saint Camillus in Zabrze is located on Traugutt Square, which is considered the most beautiful in the city. The building of the church was designed by Heinrich Gerlach, a Gliwice architect, but the square itself and a number of buildings on it, as well as the interior of the church are the work of Dominicus Boehm, a prominent German architect. In the interwar period, he successfully combined historicizing styles with popular Modernism. The hosts of the church are the fathers Camillians.
