One of the many interesting wooden churches of Silesia is located in Ostropa, a district of Gliwice. The church is situated a few miles west of the city, on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province. It is difficult to determine the exact date of the construction of the first building on the site of the present church. It was mentioned as early as 1340, but we know that the building was burned down during the Hussite Wars. In the seventeenth century, it was replaced by a new shrine.
The Central Cemetery at Kozielska Street in Gliwice is an interesting example of modern urban necropolis, which is located in a park. The cemetery was established in the 1920s in response to the demand of the growing city on the Kłodnica river. It has an oval layout, with a symmetrical arrangement of plots and alleys. Two gates lead to the cemetery, and in its central part there is a monumental funeral home.
The wooden church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary located on the Starokozielski Cemetery in Gliwice was originally erected in Zębowice near Olesno. Itserved the local faithful from the end of the fifteenth century to the beginning of the last century. Then, it was carried over to Gliwice. It is archaic wooden structure, with an added tower, was crowned with a helmet and a lantern. The interior, decorated in the Baroque style, dates from the eighteenth century.
The loft in the granary in Gliwice is another successful example of the revitalization of former industrial buildings in Silesia. The project of the adaptation was created at the “Medusa Group” designing studio from Bytom, also known for the “Bolko” loft building in that city. There are luxurious apartments and utility rooms in the nineteenth-century Gliwice granary. The project was soon appreciated. It already received the “Superjednostka (Super Unit)” award in 2010 and secured its place in the prestigious catalog of "101 most interesting Polish buildings of the decade."
The history of the Gliwice parish church of the Holy Cross is connected to two orders. The Baroque church was built in the seventeenth century by the Franciscans, after the conflagration of the older church. It is worth emphasizing that after being rebuilt in the 1920s, the church was deprived of stylistic features. From that time on, to the present day, there has been a Redemptorist monastery, here. Inside the church, it is worthwhile to see old furnishings and a number of seventeenth-and eighteenth-century sculptures.
