Katowice: 2-Hour Walking Tour with Local Guide
- Duration: 2 hours
Explore the emerging metropolis of Katowice and learn about its complex history on a 2-hour walking tour with a local guide. Discover original pre-war buildings from the end of the 19th-century through to modernist buildings from the interwar period, when the city was the capital of the Autonomous Silesian Voivodeship. Head up the tower of the Warszawa II shaft, which used to take miners down to work in the Katowice Mine but now offers an observation deck from which you can admire the Cultural Zone. Look out over a revitalized post-mining space which includes such buildings as the National Polish Radio Orchestra Concert Hall, the Conference Center, and the new Silesian Museum, architectural pearls repeatedly awarded in contests for their unique design.
