    Katowice
    Wyciąg narciarki "Sopelek" został zaprojektowany i wybudowany w 1986r. Jednym z głównych pomysłodawców był Andrzej Jakubiński, pracownik kopalni Murcki. Z myślą o swoich dzieciach zaprojektował wyciąg. Cel był jeden, wypoczynek dzieci i młodzieży. Stok, na którym wybudowano wyciąg znajduje się w obrębie ulicy Sołtysiej. Jest naturalnie ukształtowanym zboczem. Dokonano tylko niewielkiej niwelacji peronu startowego.

    The history of the Protestant parish in Mikołów goes back to the second half of the sixteenth century. After the wave of the Reformation, the Counter-Reformation came to Silesia, which was not conducive to the construction of Evangelical churches. Eventually, the church was built in the early 60s of the nineteenth century. The neo-Gothic building was the culmination of the efforts of the Lutherans from Mikołów, who in the previous years had gathered in a rented room in the local pharmacy.

    The Church of St Mary Magdalene in Tychy was built in 1780-82. It was the third successive church in Tychy, but the first one built of brick.  The oldest, wooden sacred building  must have existed  here as early as the sixteenth century. Its present form results from the rebuilding work carried out at the beginning of the last century.  The late-Baroque  church was significantly enlarged, and after some time  a tower with a distinctive helmet was added.
