SILESIA – POSITIVE ENERGY
The Śląskie Voivodeship
The Silesian Voivodeship is the most important Polish industrial region, located in the southern part of Poland. The unique economic position occupied by the Silesian Voivodeship is owed to the fact that its share in the GDP is one of the highest in the country. The region neighbours Opolskie, Łódzkie, Świętokrzyskie and Małopolske voivedeships, bordering the Czech Republic and Slovakia from the south. Six European capitals are within the reach of 600 kilometres from Katowice, namely Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava and Berlin.
Silesia is full of positive energy, taking its source from diversity in respect of ethnicity, culture and tourism. The Silesian region has a range of Poland’s most diverse tourist attractions, including the beautiful limestone rocks of the Kraków-Częstochowa Jurassic Highland Chain, with perfect conditions for rock climbing, the mountain ranges of the Silesian Beskids and Żywiec Beskids with the well-known in Europe ski resorts of Szczyrk, Ustroń, Wisła and the Upper Silesian agglomeration with an industrial legacy of almost 200 years. These areas are diverse, yet they form a unity – the strong Silesian Voivodeship.
