Tarnów Leisure & Recreation

Tarnów offers plenty of leisure activities and this section is geared towards those looking to stay active while in town. If strolling the cobbled alleys of the Old Town isn't enough, the city also boasts the large Strzelecki Park practically right in its centre, which merits inclusion on any sightseeing checklist thanks to the Bem Mausoleum. If you have a more specific activity in mind, Tarnów's local sports and recreation organisation (TOSiR) is one of the best in Poland, and offers a range of public fields and facilities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, the water park, climbing wall and more.

Tarnów also boasts a professional motorcycle speedway track, and visitors from April to October have the exciting opportunity to watch the local club compete against the country's best. Once that gets you revved up, you can head to one of the two excellent go-cart tracks in town to burn some adrenaline.

Go-karting

Motor sports are a favourite activity in Tarnów and go-karting is taken about as seriously as you can imagine without quashing the fun. Just west of the Old Town, Tarnów boasts two adjacent go-karting tracks on ul. Kochanowskiego, which together probably represent the most exciting and competitive go-karting complex in Poland. Safe and exhilarating, visitors to the city should seriously consider taking a spin behind the wheel while in town.

Local Sports

The big spectator sport in Tarnów is motorcycle speedway (żużel in Polish), with the local club Unia Tarnów dating back 50 years and now competing in Ekstraliga - the highest sweedway league in PL. In fact, they've won the Polish championship three times in the last decade. If you're not familiar with speedway, this is motorcycle racing between 4 racers at a time on a dirt oval track. Speedway motorcycles have only one gear and no brakes, causing drivers to 'powerslide' through the turns before hitting up to 70mph on the straightaways. Pretty thrilling and a great opportunity to catch some local sports excitement in Poland without suffering a boring, sloppy (and potentially dangerous) football match.
