Visit Gliwice!

Gliwice is a city in Silesia, southern Poland. It is known for its industrial character and 19th century architecture, but also has many attractions for tourists, such as parks, museums, and monuments. We especially recommend visiting Gliwice’s Old Town and Main Square and their beautiful townhouses from the 19th and 20th centuries. Another must-see attraction is the Gliwice Radio Tower which happens to be one of the world’s tallest wooden structures.

Polish culture and cuisine

Poland is a country located in the heart of Europe. That’s why, as a nation, we have got a long and difficult history related to the events that truly changed the fate of the world. Polish cuisine is hearty and filling, featuring dishes such as pierogi (dumplings), bigos (stew), and kielbasa (sausage), and often utilising ingredients such as cabbage, potatoes, and mushrooms.
