Nikoszowiec is a very special district of Katowice. Silesians have dubbed it Nikisz. I highly recommend visiting it and staying for a while.
It is a mining district, designed by the Zilmann brothers – Georg and Emil and built for the miners of the Giesche mine. As part of national heritage, this symbol of Upper Silesia, this district lets you dive into the true feel of the region, and no wonder. It is, after all, one of the most picturesque parts of the region.
Be sure to take your time, once you’re there. Enjoy some cakes at the café right opposite the church. Take a walk. Talk to the locals. They can tell you more, than you’ll ever find in books and on the Internet. Last, but not least, don’t leave before you try a traditional Silesian dinner!
