Our Region


Mikołów is a city of 39.000 inhabitants which is situated on a Silesian plateau, near Katowice, at the crossing of two important communication routes: Katowice-Pszczyna and Gliwice-Oświęcim. It has been functioning as a county city since 1999. Mikołów is one of the oldest cities in Upper Silesia which lies on the old route leading from Cracow to Wrocław. The earliest mention is from the year 1222. However, it is believed that the city is older. In the thirteenth century Mikołów was a fortress but then it lost its position to the castle in Pszczyna. Under the regulation of Ferdinand II from 1545, the city received the right to organize fairs and markets and the tradition has been cultivated since then. Municipal rights were given to Mikołów in 1547 by Jan Turzo who was its owner at the time. The flowering of the city became possible thanks to the city’s good location on the busiest trade route. Over time rulers of Silesia and the owners of Mikołów were changing: after the Silesian Piasts came the Czechs, then the Austrians and the Prussians. In the nineteenth century Mikołów became a famous center of Polish publishing movement. In 1845 the first Polish printing house in Upper Silesia was opened here and a Silesian activist Karol Miarka joined the city. After World War I Mikołów together with a part of Upper Silesia became a part of Poland.


Silesia is a region which covers the basin of the upper and middle Odra as well as the upper Warta. Due to its frontier location and numerous changes of nationalities (Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Prussia), the region is very diverse culturally and ethnically. Since the end of the fourteenth century Silesia had been lying beyond Polish borders. After the first World War Poland received the eastern part of Upper Silesia and after the second World War almost all Silesian area became part of the country. The interesting history of the region is brought back by many monuments, old cities and towns, castles of former princes, workers’ colonies as well as by Catholic and Protestant churches. Traditionally Silesia is divided into Lower Silesia and Upper Silesia. The latter is often identified only with its the most industrialized part i.e. Upper Silesian Industrial District which till the 80s had been the center of Polish heavy industry. ( Currently it is being restructured.) The capital of the region is Katowice. In addition to the large urban agglomerations (with the highest population density in Poland), Upper Silesia also includes extensive green areas-the so-called ‘Green Silesia’ with Beskid that is adjacent from the south as well as with beautiful agricultural and forest areas that are adjacent from the north- west. Upper Silesia is a well-known and respected cultural and scientific center. Numerous universities, research centers, cultural and artistic institutions function in the region.
