"Tychy" (, ) is a city in Silesia, Poland, approximately 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of Katowice. Situated on the southern edge of the Upper Silesian industrial district, the city borders Katowice to the north, Mikołów to the west, Bieruń to the east and Kobiór to the south. The Gostynia river, a tributary of the Vistula, flows through Tychy.

Since 1999 Tychy has been located within the , a province consisting of 71 regional towns and cities. Tychy is also one of the founding cities of the Metropolitan Association of Upper Silesia, a pan-Silesian economic and political union formed with the eventual aim of bringing the most populous Silesian areas under a single administrative body.

Tychy is well known for its brewing industry, which dates back to the 1600s., Microsoft Encarta Online Encyclopedia 2009 Retrieved 2006-07-02 Since 1950 Tychy has grown rapidly, mainly as a result of post-war Communist planning policies enacted to disperse the population of industrial Upper Silesia.Duvall, C and Winstan Bond. (2003). "Suburbanising the Masses: Public Transport and Urban Development in Historical Perspective". p. 114. Ashgate PublishingLipk-Bierwiaczonek, M. , " Katowice"Retrieved 2006-07-02

The moniker Tychy is derived from the Polish word "cichy", meaning "quiet" or "still".Room, A. (2005). "Placenames of the World". Second Edition p. 386. McFarland and Company Although appropriate for most of Tychy"s history, the name is now somewhat ironic considering the growth of the city from 1950 onwards.

Originally established as a small agricultural settlement on the medieval trade route between Oświęcim and Mikołów, Tychy was first documented in 1467., Retrieved 2006-07-02 In 1629 the first trace of serious economic activity was recorded in the shape of the Książęcy Brewery, which is now one of the largest breweries in Poland., Retrieved 2006-07-02

From 1526 onwards the area on which Tychy is built was part of the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy. This situation came to an end when Prussia forcibly took the land in 1742, before itself becoming the German Empire between 1871 and 1918. For a short period between 1918 and 1921 Tychy was just inside the border of the newly formed Weimar Republic and still a part of the German Province of Silesia, only securing its place within the Second Polish Republic after the armed Silesian Uprisings (1919 to 1921). Encyclopædia Britannica Online Retrieved 2006-07-02

Shortly after its return to Polish territory Tychy began to develop into a small urban settlement, acquiring a hospital, a fire station, a post office, a school, a swimming pool, a bowling hall and a number of shops and restaurants. Its population also grew between World War I and World War II, reaching 11,000 at its highest point during this time.

939 to 1945: Invasion and Occupatio
Along with the rest of industrial Upper Silesia Tychy was occupied by Nazi forces after the invasion of Poland and absorbed into the Third Reich^ Cienciala, Anna M. (2004). University of Kansas. Retrieved on 2009-07-03, while many of its inhabitants who were not expelled or exterminated were forced to change their nationality to German in order to comply with the racist policies of Nazi Germany.Kamusella, T. (1999) p. 381 Open Society Institute. Retrieved 2009-07-03 Fortunately the city received minimal damage during the invasion, thanks largely to the fact that most of the nearby fighting took place in the Mikołów-Wyry area., Retrieved 2006-07-03

The "New City" was designated by the Polish government in 1950 and deliberately located near to Katowice with the intention that it would not be a self-sustaining city. Tychy is the largest of the so-called "new towns" in Poland and was built from 1950 to 1985 to allow for urban expansion in the southeast of the Upper Silesian industrial region. By 2006 the population had reached 132,500.

The design and planning of New Tychy was entrusted to Kazimierz Wejchert and his wife Hanna Adamczewska-Wejchert.

In the administrative reforms which came into effect in 1999, Tychy was made a city with the status of a powiat (a city county). From 1999–2002 it was also the administrative seat of (but not part of) an entity called Tychy County ("powiat tyski"); this is now known as Bieruń-Lędziny County. Tychy is twinned with the town of Milton Keynes, UK.

A large Fiat auto plant is located in Tychy, with production of nearly half a million cars in 2008. The fast-selling Fiat Nuova 500 is made exclusively in Tychy.


Tychy is home to two major sporting teams, both named GKS Tychy. GKS stands for Górniczy Klub Sportowy, (English:"Miner"s Sporting Club"), which is a common prefix for Polish sports teams situated near mines or in mining regions.

Several players from the club have gone on to play in the American and Canadian NHL. These include Mariusz Czerkawski and Krzysztof Oliwa.


GKS Tychy football club was also established in 1971 and currently plays in the Polish Second League. Throughout a varied career the club reached a pinnacle between 1974 and 1977, making it into top Polish league Ekstraklasa. During those glory days GKS Tychy also participated in the 1976–77 UEFA Cup. Tychy City Stadium (Polish:Stadion Miejski w Tychach) is home to the club and seats 12,000 spectators.

A few notable footballers were either born in Tychy or spent some of their career at the club, the most famous being Real Madrid and Poland goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek. Ekstraklasa player Bartosz Karwan started his career there, as did retired player Radosław Gilewicz.

Tychy has been the birth place and home of notable people, both past and present. German sculptor August Kiss (1802-1865) was born in Paprotzan, Prussia, which is now situated within modern day Tychy.
