Katowice
There is a noteworthy bridge in Katowice Podlesie, which links both banks of the Mleczna river. Built in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, it is the oldest bridge still operating in the region. By the early 90s of the last century, it was still passable, but since that time, due to the threat of devastation by traffic, it has served only pedestrians. The small Mleczna river flowing here begins in the vicinity of the reserve “Ochojec” in Katowice, and it is a tributary of the Gostyń river.
Tychy
"In Tychy, in addition to the well-known Prince Brewery, there was also a plant for the production of beer called the Civic Brewery. It started operating in the late nineteenth century, when it was owned by the company Brauerei Aktien Gesellschaft Brieger. After a century, the plant was shut down in 1999, and currently, its old buildings are owned by a private company. It houses an entertainment center with a restaurant and a music club.
Tychy
The Church of St Mary Magdalene in Tychy was built in 1780-82. It was the third successive church in Tychy, but the first one built of brick.  The oldest, wooden sacred building  must have existed  here as early as the sixteenth century. Its present form results from the rebuilding work carried out at the beginning of the last century.  The late-Baroque  church was significantly enlarged, and after some time  a tower with a distinctive helmet was added.
Tychy
"The tradition of brewing in Tychy goes back in 1629, which is marked in the beer label - under the crown prince. A modern brewery was built in this town by Duke Johann Heinrich Hochberg von Pless XI in the second half of the nineteenth century. It was later developed into one of the largest breweries in the Polish lands. The Tychy Brewery presents its history and today’s times .This is a combination of a modern museum with a tour of the modern facility and tasting a recognized brand of beer."
Tychy
The City Museum in Tychy was established in 2005. As befits the industrial city, it is housed in the historic building of an old drying plant of grain stillage (spent barley grains) built in 1909 and located in the premises of Prince's Brewery of Tychy. The museum has organized several interesting exhibitions, devoted mainly to Tychy and its environs. This institution is a meeting place for people of culture and education and conducts publishing activities.
