Katowice In Your Pocket


Silesia then, in some ways, is an abstract concept and a geographical anomaly. The region spreads out from Katowice’s suburbs and sprawls into a matrix of towns and cities that were once historically connected through heavy industry and political autonomy. This shared history helped forge a strong regional identity and indeed Silesia has its own dialect (Silesian) which is a mix of Polish, German and Czech. In Your Pocket has travelled to the furthest reaches of Greater Silesia to try and uncover the regions sordid past and shed some light on its bright future. Katowice and Greater Silesia as a whole has a lot to offer the open-minded tourist, businessman and post-industrial enthusiast alike.
