If you haven't noticed already, Katowice, and Silesia as a whole, is big on industrial tourism. If this is where your interests lie, then 'Walcownia Cynku' (Zinc Metallurgy Museum) will be right up your street! Originally opened in 1904 near Huta Bernhard (Bernhard Steelworks), the Zinc rolling mill hall (91x20m) and the engine Room (70x6m) functioned right up until 2002! The interior is filled with the majority of theoriginal machinery, so walking around, you have an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the place. The main function of Walcownia today is as a museum, which also contains a collection of American motorcycles, and hosts cultural and corporate events. For photographers or filmographers, you simply won't find a better, more unique backdrop. To get there, take trams 14, 15 & 20 to the 'Szopienice Roździenska' stop, from where it is only a 5min walk away.
