About Katowice

Katowice is the most important industrial city in Poland. It is situated on the banks of Rawa River in the south of the country. It is located in the middle of the Upper Slesia Industrial Region, which is called as the "Industrial Metropolis" of Poland with 14 cities and over 3 million population. Katowice, which has the wealthiest coal mines in the country, is literally a heavy industry and trade center.

Katowice, whose establishment dates back to 1598, looks like a village surrounded by dense forests. With the discovery and operation of the coal mines in 1770, the city grew and developed rapidly. Katowice where iron-steel and cast iron production have been made for many years had become an important railway production center during the World War I.

Katowice, which hosts many factories and production facilities today, also has few historical artifacts as well as the spectacular structures of modern architecture. Although it is not considered as a tourist city, the city is swarmed by foreign visitors thanks to its economic power and cultural diversity. The most attention-grabbing architectural work in Katowice, which hosts several different festivals throughout the year, is Spodek, a flying saucer-shaped indoor sports hall.

In addition, the Silesian Museum and Theater, the city's historical center Nikiszowiec, the King Jesus Cathedral and the Slesia Parliament Building are attractive sightseeing spots in the city. Cold and temperate climate is effective in the city, which receives a large amount of rainfall all year-round. Katowice International Airport is located 30 kilometers north from the city center.
