The Spodek building complex
The Spodek Sports and Entertainment Area consists of a number of buildings covering nearly 7 ha. Its outstanding architecture and convenient location in the heart of Katowice makes it popular not only with participants in large events, but also regular residents of the city.
The multifunctional and versatile nature of the venue allows it to serve a variety of purposes: art and sports events, exhibitions, trade fairs, as well as congresses, conventions and trainings, which can take place in all buildings at the same time.
Additional recreational spaces, such as the swimming pool, sauna, ice rink and gym boost the offer of the Spodek Sports and Entertainment Arena and allow it to target companies and organized groups, as well as the residents of Katowice and the broader region of Silesia.
The heart of the Spodek is its main hall. The venue has witnessed many concerts, sports events and trade fairs, and continues to amaze viewers with its architecture and unique atmosphere, attracting more and more fans as years go by.
