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.
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 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.
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.
Just before the outbreak of WW2, Tychy was a small Silesian town with roughly 11 thousand inhabitants. Shortly after the war, the Communist authorities made a decision to expand the town, which eventually became a city inhabited by more than 100 thousand people. Thanks to this political decision, today, the city represents a wide spectrum of planning and architectural solutions - from Socialist realism to Postmodernism.
