The centre of city in Bytom

24th September 2015


As you know from previous my posts my city Bytom which is located in the South of Poland is very old city 760 years old. So here you come across a lot of famous landmarks. A lot of old houses are renovated and a lot of them will be renovated in near future.

Market Square - most people call it "Red square"..



It was lazy afternoon on last Wednesday.






 The red trees are wonderful..

The house dates back from 1903.


The old part of the city

  1. The two buildings in the last photo look lonely and the flats behind them are not their friends.

  3. This Bytom "Red Square" is darn near deserted - at what time were these photos taken?
    Bytom being such a large city - this therefore would not be the central city square???
    Thanks for the answer of the "sleeping lion" of Bytom.
    So it was the Franco-Prussian war period ( 1870/1871 - Napoleon 111 v's Otto von Bismarck as the Prussian/German power behind and in front of the German Emperor or Kaiser) when this lion was presented to the city of Bytom which was then German
    owned.
    Thanks Gosia - previous post and this - you are regenerating my love of history
    and having me kept on the "boil" ( as we say).
    Cheers
