The Rybnik Aero Club and the Sport Airfield in Gotartowice

The airfield in Rybnik-Gotartowice is a sport facility, which is now being used by the Rybnik Aero Club. There are ambitious plans to expand the facility and convert it into a large airport, with a one-kilometer-long runway, a control tower, and hangars. The Rybnik airport would handle up to 150,000 passengers a year. It would be a domestic and an international airport.

Ligocka Kuźnia, which is a district of Rybnik, has an interesting monument. It is a wooden church of Saint Lawrence. The shrine was built in 1717 in nearby Boguszowice, and moved to Ligocka Kuźnia in the 70s of the last century. The building, erected on a Greek cross plan, houses the precious painting depicting the martyrdom of Saint Lawrence. The church lies on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
One of the most important industrial plants operating in Rybnik and its surrounding area was the Steel Mill “Silesia”. It was built as early as the middle of the 18th century in Paruszowiec, now a district of Rybnik, and was closed at the end of the twentieth century. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, during the heyday of the plant, a housing estate for workers was established nearby, of which a few three-storey multi-family brick houses known as familoks have been preserved to the present-day.
Jednym z najważniejszych zakładów przemysłowych działających kiedykolwiek w Rybniku i okolicach była Huta Silesia. Powstała już w połowie XVIII wieku w Paruszowcu, obecnie wschodniej dzielnicy Rybnika, a jej kres nastąpił pod koniec XX stulecia. Na przełomie XIX i XX wieku, podczas rozkwitu huty, wybudowano w pobliżu niej osiedle robotnicze, z którego do dziś pozostało kilka trójkondygnacyjnych, ceglanych familoków.
