Nikiszowiec, history, culture and entertainment #LocalsRecommend


The former coal miners' district of Nikiszowiec (German: Nikischschacht) is home to some highly unique early 20th-century architecture as well as an excellent Wilson Shaft Gallery, a magnificent St. Anne's Church, and a few additional offbeat attractions, like very good restaurant Śląska Prohibicja.

What is fascinating, the district is still alive, which means not only regular residents, visitors, and trips there but also two big fairs every year – for Christmas (in December) and for St.Anne’s Day (in July). One of the visitors, Philip Zimbardo, was fascinated by this place so much that he became a co-founder of the Youth Center at the Nikiszowiec.
