Katowice City Walk

Katowice is known to be a typical industrial city. Its short but dynamic history has resulted in a fascinating variety of such architectural styles like German Gothic, inter-war Art Nouveau and some shockingly different socialist architecture. The industrial revolution changed a small village into a modern urban center of great industrial, economic and political importance. In the 21st century we can notice a multinational, multicultural and multireligious development of Katowice and observe how it becomes a thriving cultural and congress center. Join us for a pleasant walk of the centre of Katowice to discover the most important sites of the capital city of Upper Silesia.

We organize private Katowice City Walks on request

Tour itinerary:

  1. meeting our private city guide in chosen language at your hotel at chosen time (if your hotel is located too far from the centre, we suggest a meeting point or at additional cost we can provide private transfer service)
  2. 3 hours of walking tour of the centre of Katowice that includes all important sites of this district of the city:
  • Main Market Square area – the city’s ”showplace”; the buildings at the square were built in the mid-nineteenth century; during the years of People’s Republic of Poland, some historic tenement houses were demolished in order to build some modern service facilities – Silesian Theatre – cultural institution of the Silesian Voivodeship named after S. Wyspianski, existing since 1907 in Katowice; known to be the biggest drama stage in the region
  • shopping Malls „Zenit” and „Skarbek” – cult department stores from the times of the communism era; Zenit was the first such facility in Poland – opened in 1962, it is an example of modernity – it had an escalator, glazed everywhere with a characteristic shape; it quickly turned out that one such facility would not be enough for the emerging huge agglomeration so another store was built – a much larger one; Skarbek was constructed in 1972−1974
  • Silesian Insurgents Park – a pleasant, large park located in the city center of Katowice with the Monument to the Silesian Insurgents – commemorating citizens who took part in 3 uprisings against German authorities and fought for joining Silesia to Poland in 1919-1921
