The Statue of Ryszard Riedel in Chorzów

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.

Tychy
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.

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
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
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.
Tychy
The hunting palace in Tychy is one of the buildings associated with the successive dynasties of the princes of Pless such as the Promnitzs, Anhalts, and Hochbergs. It was built by the former in 1685, and was later extended by the next family in the second half of the eighteenth century. The third of the families, the Hochbergs, founded the Brewery Park next to it. Today, the palace is privately owned, and there will be a conference center and a hotel here.
