M13 Wygodne Spanie
Nowadays CHEAP is one of the most popular words. Everything is cheap or at least that is what the salesmen and service providers say. But is it really like that? In our opinion, this seems to be a cliché. As a matter of fact, the things are not that cheap as people say, not to mention the quality of products and services. That is why, we named our M13 a comfortable night’s sleep.
Why is it comfortable? It is comfortable as it is located in the center of Silesia and Katowice on the street bustling with life. It is comfortable as you will feel comfortable in our hostel. It is comfortable with value for money as well. Come here and check it yourself! Welcome to M13 - a comfortable night’s sleep!
This is a street with a very lush, but not always glorious history. It was formely a field road between the loosely scattered peasant buildings. The situation began to change in 1852 ...
Starting from the hostel, and looking to the right, we see a huge block of St. Mary's Church, closing the street on the east side. The temple is built of clear dolomite of Silesia and until recently had walls as black as coal mined from the Silesian land.
In front of us the brick building with slightly dirty walls appears. Compact construction, leading to the inside of the gate, reminiscent of a medieval castle. Please, step inside.
I must admit to make a mistake. What is the story about Giszowiec and Nikiszowiec without mentioning about Anton Uthemann?
From a distance you can hear the rumble of wagons, hauled by a small electric locomotive. We get in and start the trip. None of us thinks about buying or validating a ticket.
Do you remember Kazimierz Kutz’s film"The Beads of One Rosary", which is the closing of his film trilogy ("Salt of the Black Earth" and "Pearl in the Crown")? Authentic moments of destruction of the old Giszowiec and the tragedy of the people who have lived there for generations are immortalized in it.
