A few days in Katowice - sightseeing and tourist attractions. Historic buildings and church in Nikiszowiec, Silesian Museum in Katowice, Spodek, Katowicka Gallery and the city at night. There are also some pictures from the Pendolino train journey from Gdansk to Katowice - quickly - 765 km in 6 hours, quietly and comfortably.



Poland from the train

I like to travel by train - it is time to think, read, watch the world from a completely different perspective. The image behind the glass moving at high speed is almost hypnotic and also metaphorical. The world is racing and we just sit and watch everything ... through the glass ... (Photo: LG G4).

The Silesian Museum in Katowice is in the closed "Katowice Coal Mine". Some of the elements of the mine, such as shaft lift tower or mine buildings, were used for the construction of the museum. It looks very interesting. (Photo: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II, obiektyw M.Zuiko 12-40 mm f/2.8 ED PRO)

Center of Katowice at night makes quite a nice impression. Everywhere many young people walk, sit on benches or in cafes or bars. Pleasant summer evening in the middle of the week and a lot of people on the street.
