If you’ve never considered venturing to Katowice, it might just be time to take the trip. Situated in Silesia, the southern region of Poland, the city itself is definitely on the up and a great deal of growth is making it a cultural hub we should be getting familiar with.

Over the last few years, Katowice has developed into an innovative city, consisting of a bunch of vibrant and energetic regions all ready to be explored. It even has its own dialect - if you fancy having a go at the native tongue, it’s a combination of Polish, German and Czech and known as Silesian. With just over a 2 hour flight time, there’s no excuse not to visit, so we’ve put together our top 5 list of things you can get up to…

1. Katowice Arts Scene

Brushing off an industrial past Katowice is traditionally known for, the art scene is on the rise and it’s often recognised for the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Wyspiański Silesian Theatre.

2. Visit the Silesian Museum

Having withheld through a Nazi attack, the Silesian Museum is rich in historical artefacts and the culture of Katowice. Here you can find stunning Polish art galleries and exhibitions that are well worth a visit.

3. Go to a Concert at the Spodek Arena

The visual aesthetic of the Spodek Arena is that of a UFO, but as the biggest concert venue in Katowice, it’s not to be missed off your itinerary. The likes of Elton John, Metallica and Pearl Jam are just some of the famous faces that have chosen to play here.

4. Brush up on your Brewery Knowledge at Browariat

Housing a number of international beers from Camba, Meantime and Holland, Browariat is the most popular brewery in Katowice. Visit here to try some of the finest craft beers and spend your night relaxing in the vibrant atmosphere.

5. Poland’s Largest Cathedral – Christ the King

If you’re feeling cultured, the Cathedral of Christ the King is a must-see on your visit to Katowice. Measuring 89m by 53m, this impressive sight is a fine example of classic Polish architecture.
