The buildings of the Centre for Disabled People in Zabrze Rokitnica were
built in the years 1902-1904. They were designed by brothers Emil and Georg Zillmann, Berlin
architects. The brothers became known in Upper Silesia for several projects, including Giszowiec, a workers' housing estate. Today, the buildings are owned by the Medical University of Silesia. The Faculty of Medicine with the Department of Dentistry are housed here.
In the nineteenth century, Rokitnica was already a large,
industrial settlement, which was part of Count von
Ballestrem’s property. Count was the owner, among
others, of the mines "Castellengo" ("Rokitnica") and
"Abwehr" ("Mikulczyce '). In the early decades of the
twentieth century, Count took a special care of the
miners working for him and built a housing estate „Stara
Rokitnica”. It resembles a well-kept village with houses
for four and eight families, next to which a school, a
pharmacy and other public facilities were built.
The John West Ranch in Zabrze is one of the few equestrian centres specializing in horse riding in the Western style. The stable is located in Rokitnica, a northern district of the city. Its traditions go back to the second half of the 1980s. The centre offers recreational riding for children and adults, stayin in a boarding house or a possibility of buying a horse. The so-called “ Cowboy Days on the Ranch” organized by the stable are a very interesting event.
The Refuge of Peace is a life-work of Mother Eve from Miechowice, a person famous all over Silesia. Waleska von Tiele-Winckler, named Mother Eve, was an aristocrat, who devoted her life to helping the poor and needy. In 1890, the first residential care center, called the Refuge of Peace, was opened in Miechowice near Bytom (now a district of the city). In the following years, new buildings were added, creating a center of charity care homes, a nursing school, and even its own church.
Apart from the ruins of the palace and outbuildings, the Tiele Winckler Palace Park, known under its present name as the
People's Park, is all that have remained of the once beautiful the palace and park. It was founded as a landscape garden in the early nineteenth century, and was extended 50 years later, retaining the previous spatial layout. Numerous exotic trees were planted here. The park, though a bit run down today, is on the list of monuments.
