Tychy, one of the largest cities of the Silesian province, is located in its very centre. The major communication routes intersect here – Warszawa-Cieszyn and Kraków-Wrocław. An additional advantage is the proximity of the Balice and Pyrzowice airports, which are just within an hour of driving distance. But most of all, Tychy is green – parks, squares and historical Pszczyna Princes’ forests, famous for their extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna, constitute more than half of the surface of the city. In the city there are 172 m2 of green areas and 7.2 m2 of greenery per each resident.
A multitude of outdoor locations, as well as the proximity of Lake Paprocański and many ponds, provide ideal conditions for leisure and relaxation in the beautiful surroundings. Numerous bike paths, forest tracks, outdoor gyms and playgrounds for children encourage active leisure; they are great places for walks, exercise, bike tours, horse riding, nordic walking and many other forms of physical activity.
Not without reason Tychy is also the capital of the Polish automotive industry the Fiat factory – one of the largest in Europe – has been producing a new car every 35 seconds since 1973. Moreover, Tychy boasts the oldest brewery producing the best beer in Poland since the 17th century. The Prince’s Brewery in Tychy invites you not only for beer tasting, but also to explore its historical edifice. Also the Civic Brewery tempts you to visit with its 19th century architecture and numerous cultural events, which take place within its premises.
