The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the most distinctive buildings in Sosnowiec. The shrine was erected in the years 1893-1901, that is, just before the granting of city rights to Sosnowiec. The monumental, neo-Romanesque building was designed by Karol Kozłowski. The interior was decorated with magnificent religious and historical murals by Włodzimierz Tetmajer and Henryk Uziembło. Along with the church a stylish rectory was built.
Modrzejowska Street is one of the oldest and most important streets in the center of Sosnowiec. It serves as a promenade. The street was laid out at the beginning of the second half of the nineteenth century, after opening of the Warsaw-Vienna Railway station. It then ran from the city center, which is near the train station, towards the then yet independent village of Modrzejowa, which is now a southern district of Sosnowiec. In the street we can encounter a few nice buildings from the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth centuries.
is the oldest in Sosnowiec. It was built in 1862 thanks to "the efforts of Polish railway workers, pioneers of cultural and social life in Zagłębie." The church is small. It refers to the Gothic style. Its tower is crowned with an unusual bulbous helmet. In the churchyard there is a building with the stations of the Cross, which houses valuable paintings by Włodzimierz Tetmajer.
The historic train station in Sosnowiec was built as part of the Warsaw-Vienna Railway in 1859. It was designed by Enrico Marconi, one of the greatest architects in the Polish lands in the middle of the nineteenth century. The building was erected in the harmonious neo-Classicist style, referring to the architecture of the Vienna Station in Warsaw. The building was a witness to the battle during the January uprising.
The orthodox church in Sosnowiec dedicated to Saints Vera, Nadia, Luba and his mother, Sophie, is the seat of one of the two Orthodox parishes covering the area of today's Silesia. The church was built close to the train station of the Vienna- Warsaw railway. The church is a cruciform building, stylistically reminiscent of the Byzantine patterns. In the interior, you will see, among others, an iconostasis, which is more than 100 years old.
The palace of Dietl in Sosnowiec is one of the most beautiful residential buildings not only in Zagłębie Dąbrowskie, but also in whole Silesia. The palace was erected by Heinrich Dietl at the end of the nineteenth century. Heinrich Dietl was a German entrepreneur, who launched in Sosnowiec the first worsted spinning mill in the Polish Kingdom. The palace was built in the neo-Baroque style.
