Those with time on their hands should head for the suburb of Nikiszowiec where there is a unique housing estate built for miners (and their families) who worked at the nearby Nickisch (now Poniatowski) shaft between 1908 and 1924.
Built of attractive red brick, with a network of streets between them, the nine blocks are interconnected by gateways, and the complex was totally self-sufficient, with everything from shops, restaurants and a swimming pool to a hospital, a school and a detention centre. Bus 12 goes here from the centre.
