A hidden Polish gem, Katowice is a musical and adventure hotspot waiting to be discovered!

Like most cities in Poland, Katowice has had a troubled and long history, thanks to events of the second world war. However, the city flourished after an industrial boom in the 19th century and expanded to its large size today! Unlike other Polish destinations, Katowice isn’t known for its architecture. The industrial era led to building for purpose, rather than grandeur, as thousands of Polish miners needed somewhere to live. These buildings, which are still standing today, are an excellently preserved window into the city’s past. Don’t let this fool you though, Katowice is home to many modern attractions that make it well worth a visit. Museums, breweries and a newly emerging art and music scene are all part of Katowice’s emergence as a cultural hub.
