It is summer - the best time for travelling so what about visiting Upper Silesia. Silesia population is 4.64 million or 12,2% of all residents of Poland. One of the remarkable features of the Silesia is its multi-cultural aspect, as the province and its national borders changed throughout the history. This land was occupied by people of Polish, German, Czech and Jewish origin, but most of the people who live here today feel Silesian, as this is the only and unchanged identity they have ever had.
