In the interwar period, Tarnowskie Góry became the biggest railway node in Poland. It was just from here that coal, the main important export commodity of the Polish state, was sent into the world. However, the history of rail transport in Tarnowskie Góry dates back to the 1850s. In 1888, a new train station building was opened here, which was designed by Robert Hönsch, an architect from Wrocław, in the neo-Renaissance style.
The Main Post Office in Tarnowskie Góry is
housed in one of the largest buildings of the
city, erected in 1909 according to the design
of Hane, a Berlin architect, at the one of the
finest streets of the city, now bearing the
name of Marshal Piłsudski. The building was
erected in a fairly rapid pace. Its architecture
combines elements of Art Nouveau and neoBaroque. To this day, it has retained some
interior decorations. It was listed as a
monument in 1996.
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.
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
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.
