Tarnowskie Góry is a picturesque town in the Upper Silesia region of southern Poland. It has a rich history dating back to the end of the 15th century when mining of zinc ore, lead and silver began. A medieval mine still exists today as the Historic Silver Mine. Tourists can also visit the Black Trout Adit — a drainage tunnel that can be crossed by boat. In 2017 the underground mining and water system of Tarnowskie Góry was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The old town is known for its cafés and restaurants serving local dishes. It is worth taking a stroll around the market square and neighbouring streets to appreciate a number of renaissance, neo-renaissance and romantic buildings. Nature lovers can relax in the town park, just a 5 minute walk from the market square. There is also a water park, a town museum, a restored renaissance castle in Stare Tarnowice (the oldest district of Tarnowskie Góry) and numerous architectural monuments.
Another tourist attraction is the Nakło – Chechło lake with the highest biological purity class, which can be reached in summer by the oldest continuously operating historic narrow-gauge train.
Tarnowskie Góry is located close to The Katowice-Pyrzowice International Airport and is easy to reach from Kraków Airport.
