Celebrate Miner's Day (Barbórka) in Katowice's Nikiszowiec district! Here, the miners' orchestras will hold its annual street parade, waking up the neighbourhood bright and early with the blaring sounds of brass instruments at 06:00 in the morning. If you're not able to make it out to this unique historical district that early, don't worry, the festivities keep going all day long on the square outside of St. Anne's Church - where a special St. Barbara's Day mass will take place at 09:30. Expect lots of locals dressed in outrageous mining regalia, concerts, hearty singalongs and other odd attractions organised by the local mining industries. A truly unique and curious event in Katowice, this long-running tradition has continued despite the reality that most of the area's mines have closed down.
