Visit Silesia and its kept secret: Nikiszowiec
Luckily now is evening so I am lucky because tomorrow is Tuesday the second day of week.
I would like to invite you to Nikiszowiec the suburb of Katowice.
Silesia is a region full of hidden treasures. One of them is Nikiszowiec – a hidden district in a heart of Katowice. It is a great place to stroll and feel like at the end of the 19th century. In Nikiszowiec time has stopped 100 years ago. Nikiszowiec is a perfectly preserved small mining district with unique architecture – red brick tenement houses with red framed windows and arcades. It is a paradise for photography fans: it is full of narrow, cobbled picturesque alleys and small squares. There are a lot of gems around, such as special shops, craft workshops and many more that have been operating here from the beginning of the 20th century.The houses look the same at first sight. But it is only delusion. The perceptive observer may discover a subtle, but important difference. Which exactly? You have to look by yourself.
