Welcome to Katowice and issue 33 of Katowice In Your Pocket – your guide to the city and greater Silesia! Spring is already in the air as this year’s winter quietly slinks away having gone mostly unnoticed. Spring in Silesia usually means the beginning of a jam packed festival season. Katowice has a growing reputation for hosting some of the best music festivals in Poland (Tauron, OFF and Rawa Blues etc.) and this June will mark the kick off to the season with Tauron 2018! Don’t forget that the cultural revolution in Katowice has industrial tourism leading the way, and this year is no different with Industriada 2018, the theme being ‘Women of Industry’, the stars of which you can read about in our main feature on p.6. There’s plenty to see and do in Kato indoors and outdoors so read on to find out more. You can find a full listing of upcoming events in Katowice and other great Silesian venues in our What’s On section (p.16). Welcome to Katowice, the city which continues to surprise and humble us. Join us as we guide you through the best of what Katowice has to offer… As always, let us know how you got on in Katowice on our FB page and/or show us what you’ve seen during your time in the city by using the hashtag #katowiceinyourpocket through Instagram, or if you prefer, just use good old fashioned email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
