About Youth Hostel

The Youth Hostel is located at No 5, Sowińskiego Street in Bydgoszcz. It was built about one hundred years ago, so it has got a historical character. It is an impressive neogothic building with two storeys, where the last one is partialy limited by the slopping roof.

This object is used as a hostel from 1962. Due to capital renovation in second half of 80 years, as well as constant maintenance, it was possible to create the high standard of the hostel.


Some history of the building

The building is located in the city centre of Bydgoszcz, It was built between 1896-1898 as the seat of Dual Folk School No. 6 called 'Karlschule'. In 1896, E. Reichert and a city construction engineer Carl Meyer decided to build a school at the Saviour Square (the German Karlplatz). After a few years the property was administratively assigned to today's J. Sowiński Street.

According to the original idea, a new building was to be designed for Dual Folk School (German: Doppel Volksschule) - comprised of two separate schools, one for girls and one for boys. These were: The Sixth Folk Male School (German Sechste Knabenvolksschule) and The Sixth Folk Female School (German Sechste Mädchenvolksschule). In the building there was an equal number of identical function rooms designed for both schools - male and female. The common name of the school was 'The Charles School' (German Karlschule). It was placed in the middle of the front elevation.

Since1921, two German schools identically called 'Charles Primary School in the City Centre' had functioned in that building. The first one was a Catholic school, which existed until 1926, the second one was an Evangelical school, existed until 1924. Since 1925, a co-educational Polish Primary School under the name of Henryk Sienkiewicz was placed here.

In the school year 1936/1937 the school was divided into two similar schools. After 1945, two Primary Schools No. 2 and No. 3 were located in the building. In the years 1962-1963 the building was converted into a School Hostel Touring. Later, it's name was changed into Youth Hostel.


Tourist attractions
When you visit Bydgoszcz, you should remember that many famous people are related to our city, e.g. An excellent playwright and literature critic – Adam Grzymała-Siedlecki, a composer – K. Szymanowski or a great painer – Leon Wyczółkowski.

The monuments are grouped at the Brda River and in the area of Old Town. The building of Privinence Public Library was built in 1778 and originally functioned as a court. Late gothic church is placed at Farna Street (1466-1502). The chapel of Saint Cross was saved from the chapels. In the main chapel three are: the Image of God's Mother with a rose (1466), rococo pulpit from XVIII c. And seven side altars from XVII and XVIIc. Along Przyrzecze Street at the Brda Młyńska you can admire the group of antique buildings. One of the oldest churches in Bydgoszcz is situated at Długa Street. Built in 1522, it was initially gothic, then it was rearranged many times. The fragment of city fortification, with tower from Xvc., is placed between Pod Blankami Street and Wały Jagiellońskie Street.

At the Brda River there are three antique granaries, the oldest canes from XVIIc. The church of Clarists is located at the corner of Gdańska and Jagiellońska Streets. It was evected in 1582-1602 as late gothic, later extended in renaissance style. In the central altar – the coronation of God's Mother and the Birth of Jesus from XVIIc. A beautiful, hammered grid separates the presbitery from..... nave (1651). Near the church there is a museum, which has the biggest in our country collection of L. Wyczółkowski's works.

It is barely the part of buildings, that are worth seeing. Perhaps you become interested in fact, that every year many music events take place in Bydgoszcz, e.g. The Festival of Polish Music, and from 1966 an international festival of music of the countries that were the part of central and Gastern Europe („Musica Antiqua Europae Orientalis”). These festivals are held in the Philharmonic Hall at Szwalbego Street. One of the few groups of old music „Capella Bydgostiensis” exists at this Philharmonic. There you can also find the collection of the antique instruments, the gallery of sculpture and the portraits of composers.
