Tarnowskie Góry
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.
Tarnowskie Góry
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.

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

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.
Tarnowskie Góry
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.
Tarnowskie Góry
The church of Saints Peter and Paul in Tarnowskie Góry was passed to the Catholics in 1630. Previously, since its construction (around 1530), it was used by Protestants. In the nineteenth century, the building was rebuilt in the neo-Romanesque style. Among other architectural elements, a tower has remained from the original building. From the beginning of the eighteenth century, Saint Barbara, patron of the miners, has especially been venerated in the church. Inside the church, we will find Renaissance, Baroque and later monuments.
