Friendly and Reliable Taxi in Katowice

Katowice is the shining capital city of the Silesian Voivodeship in Poland. Thanks to its impressive industrial past and excellent art scene, there are plenty of museums and art galleries to visit during your stay. Katowice is also home to many historical sites and monuments such as the Goldstein Palace, the Nikiszowiec Quarter and the Wyspiański Silesian Theatre. 

This sprawling city is the 11th most populous in Poland, so getting around can be a little tricky. To avoid the busy and complicated public transport networks, we suggest taking a fast and reliable Katowice taxi instead. You can easily hail a taxi in Katowice from the street, book one in advance or call a radio taxi in Katowice for an easy pickup.
