Poland continues to amaze me. Katowice was one of the ugliest cities I ever visited, but now it seems that it's no longer true. Great thread!

Few hours in 2012 and a longer trip in 2009. I was also on the excursion to the Silesian museum, when it was just an abandoned mine in 2009. When I was there last time, just one street was pedestrianized and Galeria Katowicka was still U/C.
