The Garrison Church of St Barbara in Gliwice


The present building of the garrison church of Saint Barbara in Gliwice was founded by the local Protestant community in the mid-nineteenth century. Previously, since 1482, a wooden Catholic church had stood in its place. From 1809 to 1860 it was shared with the Evangelical Church. The church is an impressive, brick basilica, referring in style to the Italian art of the Trecento and the Quattrocento. It was designed by Friedrich August Stüler, a prominent architect.

The monumental and austere building of the former City Theatre located in Gliwice once housed one of the best institutions of its kind in the Silesian region. The Gliwice stage was established at the end of the nineteenth century, and in the interwar period it was part of the Upper Silesian Theatre of Three Cities. The building was partially burned in 1945, when the Soviet soldiers set fire to it. In the 1990s century, the theater building, which is now called “Ruins”, was revitalized, and has become a place of many cultural events.
