"Street chapel in Nikiszowiec" Top 5 Page for this destination Katowice Off The Beaten Path Tip by ZiOOlek

Katowice Off The Beaten Path: 33 reviews and 102 photos


In the South of Poland you may find lots of steet chapels. In the region I come from - Beskidy Mountains - almost every street has its chapel... In Silesia you will also find some good exaplmes of these kind of chapels. In some places, local people still gather together, usually in May and June. In these months there are litanies in Polish churches - in May prayers to Holy Virgin and in June to God. People gather and sing litanies together in front of the chapel. The chapel is located in Szopienicka street in Nikiszowiec.
