Industrial Monuments Route

 (+48) 32 774 09 69     more than a year ago
While Katowice holds quite a few post-industrial gems, such as the modern day Cultural Zone, site of the former Katowice Coal Mine, the wider Silesian region is littered with defunct (and still functioning!) coal mines, factories, park areas, and even still inhabited workers settlements - the most impressive of which is the charming Nikiszowiec district, only 20 mins away from the centre of Katowice. The district has some fantastic places to eat and drink, but also the brilliant Industrial Ethnography Museum where you can learn about the area, the region, and of course, its people. We have listed the most interesting industrial heritage sites throughout the region in our Industrial Tourism section, but this is only a fragment of the many industrial sites to be found around Silesia (40 to be exact, across 30 towns and cities), therefore, those of you seeking post-industrial tourism and ethnographic history are urged to get hold of the excellent ‘Industrial Monuments Route' (Szlak Zabytków Techniki) multi-lingual pamphlet containing information on all there is to see, which can be picked up for free in any Tourist Information points around the region.
