Silesia is a historical region of Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany.



  • Opole (German: Oppeln)— at the Odra River with a Gothic Cathedral and a Neo-Renaissance town hall
  • Świdnica (German: Schweidnitz)
  • Wrocław (German: Breslau) — large city that is a perfect mixture of Gothic and Baroque
  • Tychy, famous for its car factory and its old brewery.

Other destinations[edit]



Historically, most of Silesia was German speaking until 1945. Today, the vast majority of the region is Polish speaking with accompanying smaller regions speaking either Czech or German. There is a small German minority to be found in Upper Silesia. Upper Silesia is also home to a separate Slavic language/dialect, also called Silesian.
