Overview
More
The biggest and the oldest planetarium in Poland was founded in 1955 to commemorate a great astronomer - Nicolaus Copernicus. It is provided with Zeiss projection apparatus, placed under the 23 metres dome - the screen of the artificial sky. Almost 400 spectators can watch the programme at the same time. The planetarium sky is an exact picture of the real firmament under which different lectures take place. Most of them deal with geography, astronomy but musical shows can be attended there as well. The telescope with 30 cm objective situated in the Astronomical Observatory enables astronomers who work in the Planetarium to follow planetoids and comets. On fine days, visitors can observe the Sun, and after the sunset - admire the most interesting night objects, even with magnification of 750 times. Time is measured by the big sun-dial which is situated in the planetarium yard.

Great place to visit! You can request an English language session- it costs 240 zloty ( approximately £48) for a group. Amazing!

The place is a must to visit while you are in Katowice. All is fine except- the language! All info is JUST in Polish! Would be happy to understand the things the spokesman were telling the time of the presentation..

Visited a 5:00pm show, and saw a nice presentation of a sky talk using their 1955 star machine, as well as a multi-media show. Not state of the art equipment by any means, but a good job done with what they have available. Good news...More
