Upper Silesia is overpopulated crowded, polluted and what's more traffic jams are normal situation here. It is not unusual situation about 3 million people live here it's the biggest metropolis in Europe. In that situation Silesian don't like spending their free time at place especially in spring , summer . Where do they usually go away at the weekends? There are different destinations but we prefer mountains.
The answer is simple - The Beskidy Mountains which are located about 70 km from Katowice. One of the most beautiful cities in Beskidy is Bielsko Biała. This city has had a the market square which remains unchanged since 13 th century,
