Church of St. Paul the Apostle


Church of St. Paul the Apostle was built in 1911-1912 according to the design of Jan Franciszek Klomp from Dortmund.


The temple combines Romanesque and Byzantine styles and was built as a three-nave basilica on a Latin cross plan. The organ dates back to 1928 and is one of the largest in Poland. In front of the facade there are two huge sculptures depicting Saint Florian and Saint Barbara - patron saint of Silesian workers. The sculptures were made by Mathias Beule, an artist from Bytom.


The parish priest here is Father Jan Janiczek.
