Southern Poland's Upper Silesia region is where you'll find the city of Katowice, renowned as a centre of science and industry, and made famous by its history of coal mining. Today Katowice is where you'll find one of the best museums in southern Poland- Katowice History Museum. Hiring a car from Katowice means that you can visit the city's most beautiful buildings which include the Cathedral of Christ the King and the Theatre of Silesia, and you can travel between destinations at your own pace.
Rent a car in Katowice and make the drive to one of the largest and most important art institutions in Poland. Along with Propaganda in Warsaw, the BWA Contemporary Art Gallery is the modern answer to Poland's more traditional galleries. As well as showcasing established artists, it also displays work by budding local artists.
Alternatively, a trip to the Silesian Zoological Garden is an opportunity to see more than 2,500 animals from 350 different species. The fascinating Dinosaur Valley features reconstructions of full scale dinosaurs, whose fossils were discovered in the Gobi desert.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
