Hello everybody. In August I'm going to Kędzierzyn-Koźle for a week. I've been to Poland once before. My stay back then was awesome. Can someone tell me about Kędzierzyn-Koźle? What kind of town is it and is it worth going? I'd like to have kind of a party week. What's the citycentre like? Does anyone have tips? Is there anyone who knows a nice hostel in the centre?

Goat - Koza?

Did I not type the name of the town correctly?

It's rather small city, 66k people only.

My cousins live near Kędzierzyn-Koźle, close to the pleasant little town of Baborów, between Głubczyce and Raciborz. I've been there quite a few times. The 'old town' or starówka of the "Kożle" half of the city is very attractive, expecially the large market square surrounded by quaint period buildings. There are some cafes in the square where you can enjoy some good drinks and food. Make sure you spend the time to stroll through the nice streets in the old town if you enjoy old architecture. The 'newer' portion of the city, Kędzierzyn, is mostly modern and doesn't have much in terms of old buildings. There are some interesting navigable canals in this half used for transporting goods. For sure, there are clubs around the city. So, Kożle is the older, nicer half and Kędzierzyn is the more modern half. Enjoy yourself!

Thank you for this usefull information :)

We are also going to Opole. I searched the internet for Opole and It seems like a very nice town. Has anybody been there?

Yeah. Town neighbouring my village. Been there thousands of times. Nice place to visit and hang out in bars, but not much perspectives to live and work. That's why I regretfully left it.

I lived in Zdieszowice which is about 18km away from Kędzierzyn-Kożle 18 months ago.
I wouldn't describe it as a city, it's just a town and not a particularly big one. There isn't much particularly worth writing about it in my opinion, it's pretty drab looking, aren't many shops, quite unremarkable really. I am sure there are a few bars as with any town but I wouldn't expect much more than that to be honest.

Opole is much bigger, it's a bit of a university town. I am sure there will be more nightlife there...

Yes

I've seen the coat of arms for the place now.

Not one...
not two...

but

three goats.

Should be twinned with Gatwick in the UK.
Now all I need to do is find a place in Poland named after donkeys.
