The city of possibilities
Katowice. Capital of Upper Silesia Region, center of the largest, most urbanized metropolitan area in Poland, with almost three million inhabitants. The city used to be associated with the heavy industry; today, it is a modern center of culture and business travel.
Katowice will surprise you with its thorough, multifaceted transformation. Traditional industries are replaced by innovative sectors of the economy, highly developed technologies, and advanced services. Public space is changing, cultural events are increasing in number, and local communities' requirements are increasing as well.
The citizens of Katowice no longer need to leave the city to listen to the best artists performing various styles of music (Festivals: OFF, Nowa Muzyka, JazzArt), to watch avant-garde movies (Ars Independent Festival) and stage performances (Festival of Directorial Arts “Interpretations” [Festiwal Sztuki Reżyserskiej Interpretacje]), to get a closer look at street art (Katowice Street Art Festival) and world-class architectural projects (the seat of Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra or the Silesian Museum)
