The church of the Holy Trinity in Gliwice is one of the three
Armenian catholic parish churches in Poland. Its present
parson is Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski. The church building
was erected in the neo-Classicist style, in the first half of the
nineteenth century. Inside the shrine, it is worthwhile to
see the miraculous image of Our Lady of Łysiec, which was
brought by the borderlanders to Silesia, and was placed in
the church in 1950.
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
A campus extends to the east of the old city of Gliwice, where most of the university buildings of the oldest technical higher school – the Silesian University of Technology stand. Tourists should visit this place, because there are a lot of historic buildings worth attention. For instance, at the corner of Wrocławska and Strzody Streets there is an interesting building of the Faculty of Architecture of the Silesian University of Technology, originally built (at the end of the nineteenth century) as one of the first hotels in the city.
The Piast Castle in Gliwice is one of the landmarks of the
city. Its origin is attributed to Siemowit, the first ruler who
styled himself Duke of Gliwice. He reigned in the first half of
the fourteenth century. The stone and brick stronghold is
situated in the line of the city walls. It currently houses a
branch of the Gliwice Museum. The collections gathered
here present the history of the city and life of its people
from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century.
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.
