Katowice on sunny Friday

19 th September 2014

Today in the afternoon I visited Katowice. It is capital city of Upper Silesia. 







The old buildings from 19th century



 Katowice is a unique city, the center of the largest metropolitan area in Poland and the administrative, academic and cultural heart of the Silesian Province. The city’s roots are related in the mining and metallurgy industry, while currently it is developing as a thriving economic, educational, cultural and entertainment center.

Galeria Katowicka- Shopping centre next to the railway station.

The prestigious Secondary School. The building dates back from 1898.








I love this building.
