Although Ryszard Riedel, a charismatic singer of the Dżem
group, the most important Polish band playing blues, was
born and died in Chorzów, but he is primarily associated with
Tychy, the place of his residence and final resting place. In
December 2011, in this city, on Niepodległości Street, a two-metre-tall statue of the artist was unveiled. It presents asinger, walking against the wind with a harmonica in his hand. The statue was made by sculptor Tomasz Wenklar.
The City Park in Tychy, which in recent years
has been regenerated, is located at Edukacji
Street, next to the Town Hall. Since 1975, an
intriguing monument has been standing here.
It was built in the 70s of the twentieth
century, and because of its shape it is
mockingly called the Giraffe. The "monster"
itself (as well as the circumstances of its
creation recalling the movies of Bareja) is one
of the reminders of the communist era, when
this structure was to be the Monument to
Struggle and Labor.
The Church of Blessed Karolina Kózkówna in
Tychy is eye-catching from afar due to a
characteristic shape, which is dominated by
the centrally located dome.
The building was erected in the housing estate
called “T” in Tychy in 1993-2000. It also has a
very impressive interior, painted in intensive
colors by artists form Katowice, Joanna PiechKalarus and Roman Kalarus. Wood carvings are
made by Antoni Toborowicz.
Paprocany is a southern district of Tychy. It is a popular place of recreation and relaxation. The attraction of this part of the city is the picturesque Paprocany Lake and extensive wooded areas. Hardly anyone remembers that, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, heavy industry developed here. An ironworks was founded by the Duke of Pless in 1703. There are a few brick buildings of the plant, which was closed in 1878, and…an extensive lake.
While in Tychy, it is worth seeing the
buildings constructed at the turn of the
twentieth and twenty-first centuries. They are
a manifestation of architectural interest in
postmodernism. This style, characterized by a
loose treatment of tradition and a game of
convention, in Tychy is represented primarily
by the "Gate of the Sun", which quickly
became an icon of the city. Next to it, we can
see an interesting bank building, whose
shape resembles a boat.
Paprocańskie Lake (also called Lake
Paprocany) in Tychy is a water reservoir with
a first-class water quality, which is located
within the city boundaries. Local residents
and tourists take delight in ravishing flora
and fauna with a number of protected
species (such as mute swan and heron).
Here, you can relax wonderfully. Everyone
will find something for everyone, from the
beaches, water sport equipment rental
shops, biking and hiking trails to fishing
competitions and concerts.
