Opis
Chain Bath opens for the visitors the mining complex "Queen Luiza Adit". A one-storey, brick building with a basilica layout, standing just near the main street of the city, is a characteristic element of the architecture in this part of Zabrze.
The facility used by miners during the mine's activity, then used as a gallery and place for events, has awaited to adaptation under conservational supervision.
Skillful entering the elements related to the new function into the original structure of historical development creates the effect of an unique revitalization.
