  • Katowice city in the capital of Śląskie province, an important hub of the giant Silesian region. Katowice offers many attractions for tourists to discover, from the classic and charming to industry and innovation.
  • The city has a population of over 300,000 having 2.1 metropolitan area.
  • Katowice has been going through a noticeable metamorphosis, working hard to bring new life to its urban space. It’s a vibrant, modern city, the beating heart of Poland’s first metropolis, the host of many major events and a UNESCO-recognised city of music that is bursting with green spaces. For all these reasons and more, it’s not a surprise that it has become such a popular place to live, study or visit. 
  • The Katowice City has plenty of green spaces and parks such as Silesian Culture, Refreshment park, Tadeusz Kosciuszko Park and Zadole park which are tourist attraction of the city.
  • Poland is considered a very safe and friendly country to study and live. According to the statistics, it is one of the safest countries in the European Union.
  • English is fairly widely spoken in Poland with just over a third of Poles overall reported as being able to speak English to some degree.
  • Each city has its own urban transport authority, so ticket prices vary from city to city. The good news, however, is that if you are a student (and therefore have a student ID), you are entitled to a large discount (usually 50%).
  • In Poland, freedom of religion and conscience is constitutionally guaranteed, so if you are a follower of one of the legal religions, you do not have to worry about practising it.
  • It may not be so good in every part of the country, but in the south, in the Silesia region, unemployment is very low and you can choose between many different companies to work for. Big or small, production or services, Polish or foreign – the choice is yours.
  • They say that wages in Poland are low, but the cost of living also isn’t very high (at least not as high as in Western cities). The good thing is that salaries are growing every year and there are pay rises at the beginning of each year. Also, if you decide to change your job you will get yourself a salary increase for sure.
  • Cities offer all the services and entertainment one needs, but living in the village is also comfortable. There are all communal amenities necessary for a normal life.
  • Nature in Poland is amazing! It’s very diversified and it has everything which is needed for a nice weekend or memorable holidays. It has fantastic mountains in the South, seaside in the North, and lots of forests, lakes and National Parks in between.
  • Forests and meadows are usually public and available to everyone. There are no fences which would keep you from enjoying nature.
  • Summer is summer, winter is winter. There’s a big distinction between seasons which makes life more interesting. Poland has a fresh scented air in spring, scorching hot in summer, colourful leaves in autumn and snow in winter.
