Tarnowskie Góry can boast a historic urban layout dating from the sixteenth century. In those days, this miners’ settlement received many extensive privileges from the dukes, the then owners, which has also an impact on the look of the city. Tarnowskie Góry was founded amid borrow pits and spoil pits, therefore, the market square itself, as well as the grid of streets have an irregular shape. To this day, the historical centre has retained many interesting secular and religious monuments.
Krakowska Street is one of the most elegant in Tarnowskie Góry. For centuries, it was an important thoroughfare leading from the city to the East. It was changed in the nineteenth century, when town houses with smart shops on the ground floor were built. Many of these buildings were erected in historical styles, although we also encounter Art Nouveau and Eclectic houses. The eastern exit of the street is crowned with the historic building of the Stanisław Staszic 2nd Comprehensive Secondary School.
The town hall building is one of the most elegant architectural objects in Tarnowskie Góry. It was built at the market square on the site of a former courthouse between 1896 and 1898. The designer of the town hall was Hermann Guth, a known Berlin architect, who in this building combined the neo-Renaissance and neo-Gothic features. The building has three storeys, and it was decorated with clinker brick, granite and sandstone. Inside the town hall, there is an impressive meeting hall.
The Lutheran church in Tarnowskie Góry is
one of the oldest in Upper Silesia. Its origins
date back to the 20s of the sixteenth
century. It was then when the first Protestant
church was erected. It is the present parish
church of Saints of Peter and Paul. The
origins of the Church of the Savior at the
Tarnowskie Góry market go back to the
second half of the eighteenth century. The
shrine is the result of remodeling of an older
building, which was made in 1900. It gave
the church a raw, neo-Romanesque design
The Winery “Sedlaczek” is one of the landmarks of Tarnowskie Góry. This historic building is situated at the market square, at the exit of Gliwicka Street. It was erected as early as the sixteenth century, but later, it was was rebuilt several times. It is now a two-storey house with a roof covered with shingles. Its stucco decorated stone portal is the most interesting architectural element. The building houses, among others, the Museum of Tarnowskie Góry.
An old, eighteenth-century manor house is
undoubtedly a place worth seeing in
Tarnowskie Góry. Today, it houses a restaurant
and the local seat of the Polish Tourist and
Sightseeing Society. The charming interior of
the restaurant, together with a collection of
old items, is a venue for exhibitions and
concerts. The building is called “ manor
house of Goethe”. The German poet stayed
here for two days in 1790, when he came to
Tarnowskie Góry to see the steam engine and
explore the local mines.
