Nikiszowiec is located in the eastern part of Katowice, near the border with Mysłowice. It is considered the main historical attraction of Katowice. It was built in the years 1908-1918 according to the design of Georg and Emil Zillmann - as a workers' housing estate. Today, it is one of the stops on the Industrial Monuments Route and is included in the list of Historical Monuments. The estate includes nine three-story brick blocks forming quadrilaterals with internal courtyards. Each residential building has 165 flats, and a typical flat in Nikiszowiec consisted of two rooms with a kitchen and had an area of approximately 63 m². The central point of the estate is the elongated Liberation Square. The most important service buildings are located next to it: shops, a church, a restaurant, and a police station. In the estate - in the building of the former laundry and mangle - there is one of the departments of the Museum of the History of Katowice - the City Ethnology Department. There is also a Tourist Information Point at the museum, where visitors can borrow audio guides for the Nikiszowiec estate free of charge.
