#Silesia Park

The Silesia Park is a perfect location for fans of nature, sport, culture, science and entertainment. There, you will find the Silesian Stadium, where many sport and musical events take place, as well as a planatarium and a zoo.

However, the most Instagram sites in the Silesia Park include, according to many, Legendia - Poland's oldest amusement park (an attraction for the whole family) and scenic ponds which you can cruise in a rented boat or kayak. Legendia is situated in beautiful green surroundings at a fabulous lake, and its numerous towers, water attractions and roller coasters will make you feel like you are in a magic village straight from a fairy tale. You should also know that the park has a cableway called Elka. Connecting the Silesian Stadium with Legendia, it guarantees great opportunities to immortalise memorable views from above, and post them on Instagram.

#Katowice Spodek Centre and Silesian Insurgent Monument

Among places which you must see in Katowice, naturally, the iconic Spodek centre and the Silesian Insurgents Monument, which are located in a short distance from each other. The Spodek is a characteristic landmark in the city centre, as it resembles a flying saucer (hence the Polish name). It looks fabulous, especially at night, when it is illuminated in blue - an ideal background for your Instagram photo. A symbol of important historic events, the Silesian Insurgents Monument has also unique architecture. Raised in the form of three eagle's wings (to commemorate the tree Silesian uprisings), it is popularly called "the Wings”.
