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.

The Archdiocese Museum in Katowice is housed in the building of the Archbishop’s Curia at the Jordana Street, near the Archcathedral of Christ the King. It has been operating since 1975, but its origins date back to the interwar period. The most valuable part of the museum collections are monuments of religious art, but the institution also collects books, medals and memorabilia of the "Solidarity". Among the pictures displayed here are the works attributed to Raphael, Poussin or Zurbaran.

The cemetery located at present Sienkiewicza Street in Katowice was set up for the newly established Roman Catholic parish of Saints Peter and Paul at the beginning of the last century. Over time, the cemetery has become one of the main graveyards of the city, where people especially meritorious for Silesia and Polish have been buried, among them, Stanisław Ligoń, Zbigniew Cybulski, Alfred Szklarski and Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. There are a lot of interesting gravestones and a Modernist cemetery chapel in the graveyard.
