A walk through contemporary Katowice
May 2018
This amazing cultural zone is placed just 5 minutes from the Katowice Runek (Main Square). It is a large urban and contemporary space, where you will find how the history and the ideas for the future of the city are meeting one another. It is a complex comprising the Concert Hall (Spodek), in form of the Nonidentified flying object, Congress Center, half beneath the small artificial hill, half in black glass, Philharmonic, contemporary edition of the old red-bricks building in Silesia, and a Silesia Museum, 4 floors beneath the earth, with amazing complex of old and contemporary buildings turned into galleries and caffees. All this is conected with paths, fountains, trees and benches to have a time-out. Moreover, all this promises you a great afternoon stroll, and getting to know the live and cultural spirit of the town! When here you should definitely visit Silesia Museum, which is by all standards great: interactive, diverse, provocative and full of great contents! As their permanent exhibits, hey have a part dedicated to modern Polish art, simply amazing and refreshing, and a part dedicated to the history of all region, well organized, interesting and substantial! You have free entrance every Tuesday, and that is when you can see so many people strolling around here and enjoying the culture and history they have, and coffee and drinks in between. However, it is also worth to pay the entrance, which is inexpensive. The staff is super friendly and all of them speak English. You should definitely come and stroll around Strefa of you are in katowice- get something to drink, chat with polite Polish people around and enjoy the city spirit. It will take you 3-4 hours all, but you will have good memory of the city!

    Nowe miejsce w Katowicach
    To jedna z nielicznych sensownych i potrzebnych inwestycji w tym mieście w ostatnich latach. Odnowiony Spodek + MCK + nowa siedziba NOSPR + Muzeum Śląskie -wszystko w jednym miejscu. Mankamentem jest brak parkingu podziemnego o który aż się prosi, bo beton na górze mógłby być zastąpiony zielonym parkiem i miejscami np. do warsztatów kulturalnych w plenerze.

Recently developed part of the city, stretching from Spodek arena to the new Silesian Museum, with the International conference centre (MCK) and the Polish National Radio Symphonic Orchestra's (NOSPR) concert hall on the way. Great architecture and a good place to see the city as well. Used to be an industrial area.
