“Suchy Połeć”, which can roughly be
translated as “Big Piece of Bacon”, also called
“Suchy Palec” – “Dry Finger”, is a distinctive
rock formation near the center of Podzamcze.
In this region, there are German bunkers from
the Second World War. They were part of the
so called Ostwall, a fortification line whose
task was to prevent the Red Army from
invading the areas of Upper Silesia. Although
the Soviet-German fighting in the nearby
areas was fierce, the bunkers themselves did
not play a bigger role, however.
