Katowice - city of grand events

Katowice center of cultural and economic life in upper-silesia. Silesia is a region incredibly rich in landmarks; here were born, lived and worked many famous people of science and art; here had their residences the princes of the Piast dynasty; here took place historical events important to Poland and Europe, whose memorials we can see to this day.

The Silesian Voivodeship’s landscape is diverse in many respects: geographically (here coincide terrains belonging to The Kraków-Czestochowa Upland, Silesian Upland and Beskid Mountains), economically (next to Upper Silesian Industrial Region we’ll find typically agricultural areas), culturally, ethnically and religiously.

Worth visiting is, for instance, the Black Trout Adit in Tarnowskie Góry, where you can feel the thrills and take an underground tour by boat, while watching wonders jealously guarded by Skarbnik (The Treasurer), the legendary mine ghost.
