Upper Silesia is modern and well- develped but there are the old buildings,too. Most of the old buildings dates back from 19th century when it was a typically mining region. And what's more all houses were made of red brick. Now new building are completely different and are made of concrete. I don't think so it is a better material but definitely cheaper than brick now. A lot of buildings need renovation to preserve them for next generations.
