The region of Silesia invites and attracts both history and culture enthusiasts, those hungry for knowledge and interested in technology, thrill seekers and sport fans, as well as those who like relishing the beauty of nature!
Considering its variety the region of Silesia seems to be an ideal place to study – it features sites and people that are simply worth getting to know!
This is a region with palaces (such as, for example, the Palace in Pszczyna – the gem of Neo-Renaissance), castles (the medieval ruins of castles built on the picturesque limestone rocks in Wyżyna Krakowsko-Częstochowska – the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland), parks (the natural and architectural complex of the Cistercian Monastery with a historical park in Rudy), landscapes (mountain passes in the Beskidy, caves in the area of Jura), museums (the Museum of Bread in Radzionków, the Museum of Technology and Textile Industry in Bielsko-Biała), culture (modern dance shows, European-wide and even worldwide festivals)…
It is only here that you may, in just one day, experience the rich variety of places such as: the XV-century castle watchtower, palaces full of splendor and wealth, the coal mining heritage park with historical machines, shows of the folk band enjoying international success, “a backstage tour” round the brewery or the “Hercules’ Club” (a 25m high limestone formation).
