Also the capital of Upper Silesia offers a myriad of attractions and in the winter season we can even go skiing! There is a ski lift "Sopelek" operating since 1986. The idea first came from Andrew Jakubiński, a Murcki Mine worker, who designed the lift for children. The slope on which the lift is built is in the vicinity of Sołtyska street (Kostuchna district). The slope is naturally formed. There had only been a small leveling of the starting platform done. The lift is 175 m long and the route is 185 m long.
