In the outskirts of Katowice there are two worker's estates at Giszowiec and Nikiszowiec. Nikiszowiec I have described earlier now Giszowiec.
Giszowiec estate was built in 1906-1910 for the workers of the Giesche mine, which had new shafts built in 1903-1910. The estate consists of one- or -two family houses and gardens, shingled roofs and gravel roads..
In Giszowiec you can enjoy a Silesian cuisine in "Silesian Inn","Silesain Chamber" and the restaurant "Pod Kasztanami" where you can find cold, delicious Polish beer.
