About Katowice

Katowice – a metropolis worth visiting!

Katowice is one of the fastest growing Polish cities. The capital of a province of almost 5 million people, it is well connected with the rest of Europe and the world.

It is the center of the metropolis, which has undergone deep restructuring in a short period of time, and the dominant elements of the economy have become high-tech services. Another pillar is culture, as evidenced, for example, by the title of UNESCO Creative City in the field of music. The young city, 150 years old, promotes itself with the slogan: “Katowice. For a change.”

The heart-shaped logotype combines, as it were, two faces of the city – the traditional one with its industrial heritage, and the modern one – the creative and economically strong one.

Welcome to Katowice!
