You can stroll here with admiring the architecture of good times of Katowice where coal miners lived with their families. They admired the values of having a large family and faith in God. You can visit also St Anne's church nearby.

Workers' housing estate, a pearl of social housing architecture; designed in the early twentieth century. Lovely place, really worth a visit. I'm from Katowice, I can assure you it's the place that will show you how people in Silesia used to live in the past.

Probably the most interesting part of Katowice. A perfect place for a walk, as it is a unique historical site. It is quite poor neighborhood, but there are some very pleasant coffee places.
