Wisła is one of the most extensive towns of the Silesian
province. The center is relatively densely built, but
houses also line long valleys. Old wooden buildings have
survived in small numbers: a representative example is
the cottage "U Niedźwiedzia". We can encounter more
distinctive villas built when the resort was founded.
There are buildings erected in the style of the interwar
functionalism, which surround the Bogumił Hoff Square.
Large holiday centers come from later times.
Adam Małysz is already regarded one of the legends of Polish sports. In Wisła, which is the home town of this ski jumper, there is a real find for every fan. This is the Adam Małysz Gallery of Sports Trophies. In a few rooms of the building at 48a 1 Maja Street, Crystal Balls of the four-time World Cup winner, medals of the World Championships and the Olympic Games, trophies, sports equipment, a ski suit, and memorabilia of the champion form Wisła are on display.
In Wisła, one of the most popular resorts in Poland, fans of
industrial monuments can see two unique buildings of civil
engineering from the interwar period - railway bridges - one
over the Dziechcinka valley and the other over the Łabajów
valley. The latter, bigger is better known, but the other is also
worth looking at. It stands on three arches rising to an
impressive height of about 13 meters.
The railway bridge in Łabajów, located in the vicinity of
the train station of Wisła Głębce is one of the largest
such structures in Poland. The bridge of seven arches and
eight pillars is 122 m long and 25 m tall. The brick
construction was erected over the valley floor in the
years 1931-1933. It is located along the popular tourist
railway line from Katowice to Wisła Głębce.
The faithful of the Lutheran Church have always
constituted the majority of the inhabitants of Wisła.
So it was at the turn of the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries, when the first settlers came
to the area of Barania Góra. So it is at the beginning
of the 21st century. The main center of life of the
congregation in the oldest part of Wisła is the church
of Apostles Peter and Paul, which belongs to the
Evangelical-Augsburg parish embracing the town
center. The historic church of the nineteenth century
is accompanied by a former rectory and school.
