Is Osiedle Tysiąclecia a good area to live in Katowice?

Hello Poles,

I will be living in Katowice from November this year, and I would like to ask some questions.

Actually, my place of work will be in Chorzów, near the centre, but I've read quite a lot of comments advising against living in that place. This is why I prefer living in Katowice.

I've also read some comment saying Osiedle Tysiąclecia is a nice area. However, I see it's sorrounded, on one side, by Chorzow, specially Chorzów Batory, and on the other side, by Dąb and Załęże. So I don't really know if this area is really nice. The alternative would be living in the centre of Katowice (Koszutka). Otherwise, I don't want to be far from direct transport lines to my place of work.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

I'm really eager to be there!

Well, I wouldn't say it's the nicest, but it's got loads of advantages; huge park beside it....some say it's the biggest city park in Europe, but I don't know if that's true, it has a zoo, loads of pubs and restaurants and cycle paths, there's even a gondola, massive stadium (unfinished) too

Biggest shopping centre in southern Poland on your doorstep too and loads of public transport at your disposal
Tysiąclecia itself has loads of shops, a few supermarkets and small businesses too, things like chemists, hairdressers, the usual local stuff

Koszutka is fine too, you're closer to the city and can take buses/trams to Chorzow every day easily. I used to do that, takes about 30mins to Chorzow on tram, buses can be tricky depending on time of day, they can take 20 minutes or up to an hour depending on traffic; not as many conveniences as Tysiąclecia, but you're closer to town so there's that.

If I was working in Chrozow, I'd go for Tysiąclecia, it's still pretty close to Kato, and if you wanna stay in Kato later for a few pints at night it's serviced by late trams and buses too, or just get a bicycle, cold weather doesn't really hit until January (for the last few years anyway)
