Poland I.: Katowice

Founded in the 16th century, for a long time Katowice was famous for its great quality coal mines. In the past 15-20 years, the city has been through major changes and now is the biggest city of Silesia county. Its population reached 303 000 and has great relationship with cities like Köln (Germany), Groningen (Netherlands) and Miskolc (Hungary).
