Visit the former workers' district of Nikiszowiec on a guided tour and see the amazingly picturesque working-class colony of the Giesche ( Wieczorek) mine. The unique 20th-century architecture was designed by Emil and George Zillman and later built in 1908-1915. Explore the 9 buildings that are connected by characteristic rooftops.
This working-class colony became a pearl among the other colonies in the area and was often used as a background for many movies about Silesia. It is included in the list of Historical Monuments. The historical miners estate now forms a tourist attraction that attracts growing numbers of visitors year by year.
