The Park on Mount Liberation in Chorzów


Góra Wyzwolenia (Mount Liberation) to a height of 321 m above sea level in the eastern part of Chorzów. In the nineteenth century, the hill was named after Friedrich Wilhelm count Reden, a person with particular contributions to the development of industry in Królewska Huta. At that time, a large city park was established on the hill. It currently has almost 7 acres. In the park, we can relax on shaded paths lined mainly with deciduous trees. There are a wooden church of Saint Lawrence and a camouflaged bunker of the Fortified Area of Silesia, which is now a museum chamber.

Chorzów
One of the tourist sights located in the Silesian Park (formerly the Regional Park of Culture and Recreation) is an open-air museum with an area of 22 hectares, in which there are more than 70 historic buildings. The exhibits collected in the museum come from the five sub-regions of Upper Silesia (the Beskids, the Piedmont, Pszczyna-Rybnik, the Industrial sub-region and Lubliniec) and from Zagłębie (Coal Basin). The Museum "Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów" is on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
Chorzów
The Church of Saint Lawrence in Chorzów is one of the monuments located on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province. The building was erected at the end of the sixteenth century in Knurów. In the inter-war period, the wooden church built of larch logs was moved to a new location, onto Góra Wyzwolenia (Mount Liberation), once called Mount Reden, in Chorzów. Currently, the church is the seat of the parish.
Chorzów
"The buildings of the former coal mine „Prezydent (President)"" in Chorzow are among the most important monuments of architecture and mining technology in Upper Silesia. A winding tower of the mine is unique on a European scale. It was built of reinforced concrete in the 30s the last century. Next to the tower, there are numerous mine buildings, some of which house the ""Sztygarka"" hotel and restaurant."
Chorzów
The Sports and Recreation Club "Trial" is located in the famous Park of Silesia in Katowice, which is an oasis of greenery extending between this city and Katowice. The club offers both riding lessons and the development of sporting ambitions. Every year the "Trial" organizes the General Jerzy Ziętek Regional Competition of Horse Jumping, as well as the Competition for the Cup of the Silesian Voivode. Besides, there are trips, rallies and riding schools.
Chorzów
The Silesian Stadium in Chorzów is one of the "legends" of Polish football. The idea of building the stadium appeared in the interwar period, but it was not until the 50s of the last century, when it was erected. Once it was opened in 1956, it was the largest facility of its kind in the country. It could accommodate more than 100,000 spectators. A lot of football matches and speedway competitions held on the stadium have gone down in history. Currently, the stadium is being under reconstruction.
Chorzów
"Plac Hutników” (Square of Steelworkers) is one of the Chorzów squares, where there is a statue of Friedrich Wilhelm Count von Reden, the Prussian minister of mining, a person of oustanding merit for the economy of the Prussian state, and regarded as the "father of Upper Silesian industry." This monument itself, by many considered to be controversial (as is the figure of the count himself) has very interesting history. The statue in Chorzów after being demolished was erected three times - by the Prussian government in 1853, by the Nazi authorities in 1940, and finally by the Polish authorities in 2006.
