Katowice, the capital of Silesia, has been the place of heavy industry, coal and steel with the coal mine winding tower as its landmark for years. After its transformation and revitalisation of the former mine area, the city Culture Zone is currently a unique place in Europe and the new symbol of Katowice, with delightful buildings of the National Symphony Orchestra of the Polish Radio,
the Silesian Museum, and the International Congress Centre.

On behalf of the ESSR and Sports Section of the PLTR we cordially invite you to Katowice,
for a high-quality educational event as well as a friendly get-together.
