Information

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.
