Radiostacja Gliwice

Reviewed By rodneycs - Linz, Austria

The Radio Station at Gliwice is the highest wooden structure in the world at 111 metres high and this is where the second world war began with Nazi provocation which Hitler used to invade Poland and start the second world war. The Nazis took over the transmitter and broadcast radio programmes from nearby Breslau. The transmitter on top of the tower is still in use and there is a museum nearby. The whole area is in a park but no toilets At night transmissions from the Gliwice radio tower could be heard throughout Europe and daytime throughout all of Upper Silesia

Palmiarnia Miejska

Reviewed By Russco83 - Livingston, United Kingdom

It's now a tradition when going to Poland to visit my family that we take an afternoon to come to Palmiarnia Miejska. For around £1.26 you can spend a nice peaceful, interesting couple of hours here. And once you have wandered around looking at the exhibits there is a very nice cafe on the 2nd level, where on a nice day you can sit out on the balcony area enjoying a really nice coffee and delicious home made cake or pudding. For me it's THE place to visit in Gliwice, do not give it a miss it's really something that you would be missing out on.

Rynek, Gliwice

Reviewed By sir_meeshoo - Gdynia, Poland

Plenty of dining and drinking opportunities, a generally solid restoration undertaking is noticeable. Rather small, yet one comes across original tenement houses to enjoy here and there.

Kolejkowo - Wonderful world in miniature!

We will take you for a journey through the miniature world in Kolejkowo. The creators of Kolejkowo have built a huge and vibrant model picturing the wonderful Silesia. They have made huge efforts to imitate as precisely as they could the reality and the life of the miniature inhabitants of Kolejkowo who are shown in a variety of daily situations. In Kolejkowo you will have a chance to observe the rural life and accompany tourists during their mountain expeditions. You will also take part in a rescue operation and play roles of foresters, skiers, buyers, construction workers, circus artists or sunbathers.

Willa Caro - Gliwice Museum

Reviewed By Basia K - Krakow, Poland

Good to visit on the occasion of an exhibition. Willa Caro is beautiful but not that impressive if there's nothing going on inside.
My favourite room is definitely the cabinet with that old massive desk and chairs.
It made me wonder what would be presented in museums in 200 years from now. IKEA furniture?

Piast Castle

Reviewed By Tomek86 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Castle dating 1108 and used by many kings Polish and German. Castle consists of courtyard, brewery, duke's house and other. There is a guided tour every hour (available also in English). And the tourist information is just at the front gate. Very nice place. Entrance is for free the only paid part is visiting the duke's house, the price was I think 3-4 polish zloty (1Euro).

Cathedral Church of St’s. Peter and Paul

Reviewed By Roman P - Chicago, Illinois

Cathedral church of St’s. Peter and Paul. Its construction was completed in 1899
It was built with the characteristic typical of the late 19th and early 20th century neo-Gothic style, with the shape of a cross. The intersection of the main nave and transept is crowned by a fleche. The main entrance leads through almost 250 feet tall tower in the middle of which there is a clock. Inside, there are three huge bells from 1922. Above the side naves and the gallery surrounding the sanctuary are spread support arches characteristic of Gothic and arched windows. The facade of the main nave is interestingly decorated with a design made of green clinker it catches the attention also the use of dormers in the roof. Above the main entrance there is a mosaic with the image of the St’s. Apostles Peter and Paul.
Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows. It’s one of the tallest churches in the city. I recommend to visit this church.

Gliwice

Reviewed By Roman P - Chicago, Illinois

The Gliwice Railway Station was opened on October 2nd 1845. The construction of the line was finally completed on October 3rd 1846. The line consisted of 196.3 kilometers was opened by the Prussian King Frederick William IV.
In the years 2015-2016 the station and platforms were completely rebuilt.
After renovation the station lok very nice and the platforms are very modern.
I recommend to go and see this station if you are near by.
