Fridrich Wilhelm von Reden

The statue ofFridrich Wilhelm Graf von Reden, very important person for industrial development of Upper Silesia (and especially – Königshütte – now central part of Chorzów). The statue has a turbulent history, and the existing monument is a reconstruction (made in the year 2002) of original monument from 19th century.

Digital xerox

I like this building, but I don't like painting. The yellow is a mistake in my opinion. But it is an owner right.

Where to fly?

(Sparrow near the crossing.)

Of course, for the sparrow is better to fly 'left'. On the left we have museum and bank (credits); on the right: hospital and funeral services (twice) :)

green woodpecker and
common pheasant.

Town Hall

The part of the Town Hall with the town coat of arms: on the left the yellow Upper Silesian Eagle on the blue background, on the right side double cross refers to the Order of the Holy Sepulchre (Chorzów, as a village was given* by Władysław, duke of Opole, to the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, in 1257.)

*) There are many uncertainties: it was village in this time, or it was only a place for village, or the village was destroyed by Mongols (called in Poland 'Tatars').

The cross in 'my neighborhood'. I don’t know how old it is, maybe 100 years? It is important place for local community – everybody knows the house nearest to the cross is an informal place for obituaries.
