National Symphony Orchestra of the Polish Radio

Reviewed By JonDoe04134 - Lidingo, Sweden

The building is not only beautiful from the outside, paying homage to the history and architecture of the region of Upper Silesia. It's also jaw-droppingly gorgeous inside. But even more importantly, the concert hall is cutting edge, which combined with excellent musicians results in an unforgetable experience.

Poland is not a very sauna-friendly place compared to Germany or Czech Republic. If you're staying at a spa hotel here you're likely to see people entering the saunas in flip-flops and bathing suits. So if in Silesia region of Poland and enjoy a true sauna experience, visit Czeladz with this spa center. The rooms are decorated in a bit kitschy manner but services and offer is professional - you get Finnish saunas, steam baths, a hot tub in kind of a salt cave, tubs with ice cold water, nice showers and resting places. They also have a sauna house outside of the main building where they can fit around 100 people for an Aufguss (a typical German sauna tradition where they put water on hot stones to increase temperature and then wave towels at participants to help them sweat it all out, sometimes done with music and humour) and after you can get outside in the cold pool (great in the winter). There is also a small indoor swimming pool and some spa services such as massage. Worth spending a whole day there, just relaxing.

Autodrom Sosnowiec

Reviewed By Brateq - Krakow, Poland

I'm a big fan of racing and cars, so there was no chance to miss this one. From very beginning service was very professional with great theoretical introduction and tips. The track have three types of surface with different grip, which is really fun! With 13KM in gokart, I was capable to drift nearly on every corner :D
But this isn't the end of attractions- after beating 26 second, driver can ride a 20KM gokart. Sadly, I need a 0,9s more to achieve this...
The only minus is a fact, that Autodrom doesn't print a list with times.

Royal Castle

Reviewed By PaK83 - Warsaw, Poland

If you like just Castles you can see it from outside, there is no need to get in for 3 euro. You will not find anything about the castle worth the money. If you are passionate about arms... you have to pay the entrance fee and spend there at least two hours. There is huge number of all kinds of arms from all over the world (I didn't find anything from Australia). Don't pay entrance fee for the tower, there is nothing except 91 stairs and poor view of the town.

Silesia Park

Reviewed By JonDoe04134 - Lidingo, Sweden

One of the largest city parks in Europe, created by the local politician Jerzy Ziętek between the cities of Chorzów, Katowice and Siemianowice Śląskie. Many attractions, such as zoo, amusement park, stadiums, Planetarium and regular large events organised there as well. However, I refuse to call it by its modern name invented by the regional government several years ago. For me it will always remain Wojewódzki Park Kultury i Wypoczynku (WPKiW) - Voivodeship Park of Culture and Recreation.

Silesian Museum

Muzeum Slaskie comprises a building complex erected at the site of the former mine and represents a perfect combination of the region’s identity with state-of-the-art architectural solutions. Such result was achieved thanks to the maximum use of underground space, and therefore relatively low interference with the local, post-industrial landscape. Impressive spaces are vast and modern and at the same time maintain the memory of place, which closely corresponds with the Museum’s cultural policy. The new building of Muzeum Slaskie, raised as a result of the local inhabitants’ needs and some brave decisions, has quickly and naturally become the crucial cultural centre of the region, a remarkably important Silesian social life hub and a significant contributor on the cultural map of Poland. The new building allowed us to display valuable exhibits, which we were unable to present to the visitors earlier, and create the “The Light of History. Upper Silesia over the Ages.” exhibition — an innovative event, which is both important for the region and emotional. However, opening new Exhibitions in just one of the goals fulfilled by the Silesian Museum. It is people who matter most to us and that is why we are proud to have established a dynamic and thriving meeting place.

The room has a nice climate...half shadow and mysterious...with background sounds and fog...like in the wonderland It looks small but that might surprise you as it is full of secrets. I was there with my partner and that was our first Escape Room ever and I must say it was not easy. We had to use tips twice but anyway we had fun...especially at the end when the time was coming to an end. I guess it might be easier with more people. I can recommend this room to anyone who likes this kind of activities.

Bledow Desert

Reviewed By AlbertSalichs - Manresa, Spain

Pustynia Bldowska is a very curious and amazing desert located near the Eagle-Nest trail, between Czestochowa (he most important pilgrimage place in Poland) and Krakow (the historical capital of Poland).
It is a fantastic curiosity in the zone, where you can not expect to find a desert. Really, it is very strange place and really there is a lot of sand. Impressive! Incredible! A place to come and marvel with it.. The biggest desert in the Central Europe.

Elektrownia Contemporary Art Gallery

Reviewed By Nick S - Scotland

Located in the plant building of the former Saturna coal mine this is an exceptional industrial museum with original machinery and historical photographs juxtaposed with modern art exhibits. Well worth a visit. It is free. Literature and signage is in Polish, but literature is available in English and possibly other languages on request. Don't miss the upper and lower floor exhibition areas.
