Culture in Tychy has a lot to offer both to residents and to visitors.
The city offers not only traditional cultural and artistic institutions, such as museums, art galleries, a cinema or theatre. It goes well beyond the walls of such institutions, inviting you to participate in the events, but also to contribute to them and to create the modern image of the city.
In Tychy, culture is at your fingertips. You find it not only in buildings, but also on the city squares (Baczyńskiego, pod Żyrafą), by the Paprocański Lake (sea shanties), on the streets, in parks and shopping malls (A window to culture). You find it on the walls (mosaics, sgraffito) and in sculptures (Riedel, Wejchertowie). It is provided by urban institutions, where history complements the present (Tychy Brewery, Municipal Museum), but also by non-governmental organisations (parties, picnics, fairs), art and hobby associations (exhibitions, open air events, concerts).
Urban route - the Unique NEW Tychy
Along the route you can see the urban concepts of the entire post-war period. The route is made up of 13 pieces of 'urban furniture' and 10 information boards located near the most attractive places in the city, both in cultural and architectural terms.
The route can be explored on foot or on bike. Information about each facility can be found on the information boards near every 'urban furniture' piece and in the guide prepared by the Municipal Museum in Tychy.
Formation and marking of the urban route cost PLN 869,418, however, PLN 739,005.30 was funded by the EU. The project is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the Regional Operational Programme of Silesia for 2007-2013.
AUKSO Chamber Orchestra of the city of Tychy
AUKSO Chamber Orchestra of the city of Tychy - is the reason to be proud of. The orchestra conducted by Marek Moś is flying high in Poland and abroad!
Aukso Chamber Orchestra of the city of Tychy was founded in February 1998 thanks to a joint initiative of a group of graduates of the Academy of Music in Katowice and Marek Moś, an outstanding violinist, conductor and chamber musician.
The orchestra's name refers to the Greek word 'aukso', which means 'growing'. The word can characterize the professional directions taken by the chamber orchestra musicians, who continually hone their skills and take up new challenges.
The orchestra's repertoire includes classical, romantic and modern music, with special emphasis on Polish music.
Aukso Chamber Orchestra is the group that is considered the showcase of the city of Tychy, the region and also of the Polish culture. It has toured in a number of concert rooms across Europe, but also in Brazil and China, where it took part in the celebration of the Days of Polish Culture.
Aukso is the winner of numerous awards, among others the Fryderyk Award and the Marka Śląskie 2011 Award. The musicians constantly expand their repertoire, enjoy the ever-growing circle of loyal audience and enthusiasts of their art. It is one of the most renowned European orchestras, which is - from the very beginning - characterized by individualism and which clearly makes its presence felt in the cultural life of Europe.
