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.

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.

Roman Spa - Temple of Health and Energyis a unique and magical place - complex of saunas, baths and swimming pools reconstructed based on the ancient Baths of Pompeii prints.with unlimited possibilities and options - Temple of the Sun, 3 swimming pools, Water Temple, 12 saunas and baths (including the mud bath, floral, herbal and Finnish saunas, sauna of experiences etc.) and the Wellness Centre & Spa with relaxing treatments and massages.
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.

That's what I missed there - a male Spanish expert in massage:)
But seriously, the place is very nice, peaceful and quiet. I guess it's easy to relax there. However, that was the very first spa that I've ever been to so I don't have anything to compare it with. Especially that visiting spas is definitely not my way of spending free time:)
You will be pretty much surprised right after you enter the place:)

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.

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.
Great design in this modern building housing an art gallery with mostly home grown talent being shown
Also a few interesting building which were closed during our time there
Cost is under a fiver per person entry.
Coffee shop and visitor centre were available.
Great architecture throughout and a must see for this town

I have ambivalence perception of this place. On one hand I like the idea on the other hand I don't like the current execution. I remember when I was small the cable railway had three stations and covered the whole park. Recently it's been modernised and only two stations are left - so instead going in a triangular shape you go only one direction. However, the benefit of the modernisation is the availability of closed cabins - which is much safer for small children. Money-wise it's way overpriced and takes app 20-25 minutes for a one direction ride.

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.

The biggest and the oldest Planetarium in Poland was founded in 1955 to commemorate a great astronomer - Nicolaus Copernicus. It is provided with Zeiss projection apparatus, placed under the 23 metres dome - the screen of the artificial sky. Almost 400 spectators can watch the programme at the same time. The Planetarium sky is an exact picture of the real firmament under which different lectures take place. Most of them deal with geography, astronomy but musical shows can be attended there as well. The telescope with 30 cm objective situated in the Astronomical Observatory enables astronomers who work in the Planetarium to follow planetoids and comets. On fine days, visitors can observe the Sun, and after the sunset - admire the most interesting night objects, even with magnification of 750 times. Time is measured by the big sun-dial which is situated in the Planetarium yard.
The Planetarium is in the middle of a large park and Goggle maps and our Satnav couldn't find it exactly. However once in the park it was signposted. We visited on a weekday morning and there were several school and college groups there at the same time. The lady taking the money was unable to explain anything to us and so another member of staff who could speak English was summonsed to deal with these strange British visitors (We may have been the first ever). We were taken through our own personal entrance to the Planetarium where we were provided with seats and watched the show as the Solar system was explained in great deal using projections onto the inside of the huge domed ceiling. The show was being put on for a couple of hundred college students. The elliptical orbits of the planets, comets etc was explained as was the mechanics of Lunar and Solar eclipses. Show over and we were picked up again by our personal guide who then gave us an explained glimpse at the Observatory whilst the hordes of students were held back! The Planetarium is set in a beautiful park and after the visit we took advantage of the bright Autumn weather to take a walk through.

Paid a visit some 10 years ago, taken there by a friend. This district of the city is something different. Probably different from anything you've seen so far, so do not hestitate but go and see for yourself. :) Designed as an estate for workers/miners it is now a famous city sight and one of the most popular tourist attractions.
