    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is possible to get to Chorzow by bus, car, train and tram. However, the best way to get there from Katowice is to take a tram. Trams leave from the main square in Katowice (Rynek) and you may reach almost all atractions like the zoo, fun fair or cable car.

    You may take all trams going to Chorzow or Bytom. The trip takes about 10 - 15 minutes. Remember to buy a ticket for two cities. Those tickets are more expensive than those for one city.

    When you go to the zoo you may find some baloons and toys sellers. They sell tools for children just in front of the main entrance to the zoo. Most ballons show animals. But be aware that prices here are high, not only for toys but also other things, including , meals, drinks etc.

    During high seasons, especially when the weather is great and during weekends you may see some special entertiment in the park. I have seen some tanks and other military cars and it was possible to have a ride in the tank. In adittion, there was also a place to play paintball.

Chorzow Favorites

  • Planetarium

    During off - season (winter) there are not a lot plays in Planetarium. It is sometimes hard to be on time to attend the play. However, try to ask at the ticket office as there are some plays for groups, like students from schools and it is possible to join the group. I did last time and the ticket has the same price.

  • Visit the Zoo

    There is a fairly nice zoo in Chorzow. It is well-maintained and half of it is an amusement park. But beware of some of the rides you take in the park,for example that "washing-machine" like spinning ride- the bars are not secured well enough and I almost got swung off the seat!! But generally the other rides were quite fun and safe as well.
