Silesia (Slask)

Major Cities
Katowice is the capital of the Silesian Voivodeship, and one of the largest cities in southern Poland, boasting a metropolitan area of over 2.7 million inhabitants. It is one of the richest cities in Poland and one of the most economically powerful cities in the European Union. Its importance as a business hub also makes it a popular city to host trade fairs; the UFO-shaped Spodek was once the largest indoor arena in Poland. Katowice was one of the epicenters of the Industrial Revolution in Poland, and the growth the city experienced allowed it to build a reputation as not just a hub of trade but also transportation, culture, and science. Katowice is a UNESCO City of Music and is where the Polish National Radio Symphony and Orchestra is based.
The city of Bielsko-Biala is situated on the Biala River in the Silesian Voivodeship, with the formerly German-speaking town of Bielsko on the left bank, and the smaller Polish community of Biala located on the east bank. Bielsko-Biala is well-known for its Art Nouveau architecture, and is sometimes referred to as the `Little Vienna` of Poland. Sights include the formidable 16th-century Bielsko Castle, home of the Sulkowski princes; the Frog House, an ornate mansion featuring, you guessed it, statues of frogs over the entryway; and multiple ski resorts located in the Silesian Beskids mountain range.
Czestochowa is the largest city in northern Silesia. It is a popular Catholic pilgrimage site, home to the Pauline monastery called Jasna Gora. The 14th-century monastery hosts such sacred religious artifacts as the painting of the Black Madonna, believed to have been created by St. Luke. Millions of pilgrims visit Jasna Gora to catch a glimpse of the Black Madonna each year, many of whom arrive on foot in the months of August and September. Tens of thousands of people travel the 136-mile path from Warsaw each year, and the pilgrims have walked that path since the Middle Ages.

The Silesian Voivodeship, in south-central Poland, is one of the richest areas of the country and the most densely-populated, fitting nearly five million people in an area roughly 80% of the size of the U.S. state of Connecticut. The capital of Silesia (Slask in Polish) is Katowice, one of the most industrialized cities in the country, and definitely one of the wealthiest. Other important cities in the region include Bielsko-Biala, known for its exquisite examples of Art Nouveau architecture and its ski slopes in the Silesian Beskids; and Czestochowa, a popular Catholic pilgrimage site best-known for the Pauline monastery of Jasna Gora and the Black Madonna painting, believed to have been painted by St. Luke, that is housed there.
