Gliwice
Ulica Zwycięstwa – Victory Street in Gliwice was laid out in the years 1875-1880. From that time on, until 1945, it was called the Wilhelmstrasse. In the course of time, it became an elegant street, leading from the Market Square to the train station. There are many grand houses, representing different, historicizing styles and Modernist monuments, with the so-called Seidenhaus Weichmann, a department store, designed by Erich Mendelsohn.
Gliwice
For centuries, the municipal authorities of Gliwice operated in the town hall, which still stands in the middle of the market square. Currently, the main seat of the magistrate is the imposing edifice of the former "Haus Oberschlesien" (meaning "House of Upper Silesia"). It is located in Zwycięstwa Street, which connects the Old Town with the train station. This Eclectic building was constructed the 1920s. Horst Bienek made it famous in one of his novels.
Gliwice
Gliwice belongs to the old city in Silesia, which has retained its medieval urban layout in the center. We do not know the exact date of granting city rights to Gliwice, but it was probably as early as in the thirteenth century. In the fourteenth century, the city on the Kłodnica river was surrounded by defensive walls. They protected the market square with the town hall and the nearby church of All Saints. The town had a gridiron plan. All these medieval features have survived to this day almost unchanged.

Gliwice is one of the major Upper Silesian cities, which can boast of the well preserved medieval urban layout. Its centre forms a square marketplace with the centrally located town hall. The first wooden town hall was probably erected as early as the end of the thirteenth century. It was later replaced with a brick one. The present-day nimeteenth-century, Clsssicist town hall stands on its Gothic foundations.
Gliwice
Gliwice was located in the middle of the thirteenth century. At this time coincided with the establishment of the oldest parishes in the city, which operates from the fifteenth century, dedicated to All Saints. The present parish church was built at the turn of the fifteenth and sixteenth century, in the Gothic style. Fire destroyed the temple several times, and after a further restorations not recovered the previous appearance of the original. The most distinctive feature is a massive tower open to the public,.
Gliwice
One of the most beautiful buildings of Gliwice stands at the corner of Zwycięstwa and Kłonicka Streets – the edifice of the former “Schlesischer Hoff” Hotel (“Silesian Manor House”), which today houses the “Diament” Hotel. The construction was completed in 1896. Stylish elements borrowed from Mannerism, Renaissance and Baroque give the appearance to the building.
