The Edifice of the Central Administration Offices in Katowice


The Edifice of the Central Administration Offices forms a western frontage of the Silesian Parliament Square in Katowice. It was built in the late 30s of the last century to accommodate the government offices, which were not housed in the Silesian Parliament. The office building was designed by modernist Witold Kłębkowski, who gave it the shape of a lying cuboid. Before the Second World War, there was a stone relief of a crowned eagle on the eastern facade of the southern projection. The work of Stanisław Szukalski was removed by the Nazis.

In the interwar period, the Silesian Parliament (Sejm) was in the legislative authority of the autonomous Silesian voivodeship. In the years 1925-1929, a magnificent edifice was built in Katowice, which became the seat of both the Silesian Parliament and the Voivodeship Office. The building was the largest in Poland at that time. It- was built in the neo- Classicist style. The Parliament Hall became a model for the Sejm of the Republic of Poland, which was being constructed at the same time.

The Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice was being built over nearly 30 years. The construction work started in 1927, and the ceremony of its consecration took place in 1955. The building was built in the Classicist style, with a monumental colonnade in front of the main entrance and a distinctive central dome. This dome is 64 meters tall and is lower than the one originally designed by 38 m. The church is the largest arch cathedral in Poland.

There are 23 cemeteries in Katowice. In many of them well known people are buried, and we can admire beautiful tombstones. But the most important necropolis of Katowice, the counterpart of Warsaw’s Powązki and Cracow’s Rakowice, is the cemetery of the parish of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary located at Francuska Street. The Avenue of Honor can be found here, including the graves of Wojciech Korfanty, Józef Rymer and General Józef Ziętek.

The building of the old train station in Katowice was erected at the beginning of the twentieth century, and for many years it was one of the flagships of Upper Silesia. In the course of time, the railroad station was becoming less and less sufficient for the needs of the growing passenger traffic. This situation resulted in the several extensions of the building by adding upper floors, and after the Second World War, it was decided to build a new facility, which was opened in 1972. Currently, the old train station building belongs to a private company.
