Katowice, Poland - my province capital city

Katowice is located in Upper Silesia, which means it's changed hands many times in its long history. The city of Katowice was founded in the 19th century, gaining city status in 1865. The city has a long history of being a multi-ethnic city, and its inhabitants consisted mainly of Poles, Germans, Jews, and Silesians. After the Industrial Revolution, the city became one of the largest centers of coal and steel production, and to this day is known as an industrial center of Poland.

  5. That's an interesting great intro to a city that I do not know, but I would like to visit. I love the seats alongside the water, looks like the public transport is good!
