City profile

Katowice is the capital of Upper Silesia. With a population of 308,000, it is the main city of the current Silesian Province.

Most buildings reflect the architecture of the communist period, though there are several remnants of its 19th century grandeur. Apart from being the principle science and educational centre of the region, this lively city offers a wide range of entertainment. Cogitatur is Katowice's premier concert venue, featuring a spacious stage upstairs and a full bar with a tasty menu on the lower level. Stadium is another place to catch huge foreign acts, and is an outdoor venue located in wonderfully gigantic Chorzow Park.
