The New Jewish Cemetery at Piekarska Street in Bytom
is one of the few active cemeteries in Silesia. It was
established in the 60s of the nineteenth century, during
the industrial boom in Bytom, which resulted in the
influx of Jews into the city. In the cemetery, there are
almost 1500 graves. Eight hundred burials have survived,
including those of the distinguished inhabitants of
Bytom, such as the families of the Loewich and
Friedlaender families. A lapidary was created from the
tombstones from the old Bytom cemetery.
The Bytom Mater Dolorosa Cemetery is one of the
most beautiful and richest in sepulchral art monuments
of the necropoles in Upper Silesia. It was founded in
the late 60s of the nineteenth century. It is located at
Piekarska Street, which runs from the city center to the
north. In 1882, a Neo-Gothic chapel, designed by Hugo
Heer, was erected on the cemetery. In the following
decades, well-known inhabitants of Bytom were buried
here. Their graves are decorated with beautiful
One of the most distinguished people in the history of Bytom was Georg Brüning, a Westphalian, who died in 1932, and who previously has served as mayor for 36 years. He contributed to the transformation of the provincial town into a beautiful and well-maintained city. We can admire his villa at 4 Legionów Street. It was designed Carl Brugger in the Art Nouveau style. The villa was built in the early years of the twentieth century.
Piekarska Street is one of the main streets in the
downtown district of Bytom. It once was the main trade
route towards Piekary Śląskie. In the second half of the
nineteenth century, a cemetery known as "Mater
Dolorosa” and a Jewish graveyard were established
along the suburban sections of the street. Grand
townhouses, the building of the Main Post Office and
the Church of the Holy Trinity were erected closer to the
city center. In 1913, the first streetcar line was launched
along Piekarska Street, which is still in service today.
The building of the Main Post Office in Bytom was erected at
the beginning of the last century. Chronologically, this is the
third seat of this institution in the city. The edifice was
designed by Karl Fischer in the neo-Renaissance style. After
the last renovation, decorative pediments, massive portals,
elegant bay windows and loggias regained their splendor.
Worth special attention are the bas-reliefs placed on the
facade of the building, which, among others, present the
scenes of how the old post office operated in the past.
The water tower standing at Oświęcimska Street in
Bytom, is worth of interest due to its innovative design
and form, which is an expression of functionalism, which
at the time of its construction was a fashionable
architectural style. The tower was erected in 1934-1935
on pillars and on deep foundations, which protect the 44-
meter tall building from the effects of mining tremors.
The tower was built of reinforced concrete and, in
particular, of high-quality portland cement.
