      10 THEMATIC ITINERARIES  :               

 

   Gliwice belong to the oldest towns of the Upper Silesia….the first record comes from 1276

 

....In 1887 a district was created in Gliwice. Since then the town has been able to decide about its own matters and needs.....

 

     Art Nouveau is the shortest lasting style which however introduced revolutionary changes in every field of art. It was born out of a desperate search for “the new”.

 

........Steelworks in Gliwice at the end of XVIII century was the most modern and leading company in Europe and became one of the powers that had impact on the growth of the city.......

 

   After the World War II, Gliwice became an important scientific centre. The Silesian University of Technology was established. At first, it was planned to be located in Katowice; however the Gliwice location prevailed due to the great number of well-preserved school buildings.....

 

   Gliwice, due to its location, was incorporated in the territories of different countries several times in its rich history. ....

 

" It is an extraordinary city, which can well be numbered among the zero-category monuments. It has a beautiful art nouveau architecture, impressing everyone who loves beauty. I recall Gliwice as a perfect example of a romantic city."
