Tychy
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.

Tychy
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.
Tychy
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.
Tychy
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.
Kobiór
The Hochbergs were once one of the wealthiest families in Silesia. Their lands stretched from the Sudetenland to Pszczyna. They were equal to kings, as evidenced by their major ancestral seat in Książ near Wałbrzych and the palace in Pszczyna. In Promnice, between Tychy and Kobiór, they built a hunting palace preserved to this day. It was erected in 1868. The palace fascinates by English neo-Gothic elegance, completed with some Swiss architectural elements. Currently, it houses the luxury Noma Residence Promnice Hotel.
