    Chorzów
    The Fortified Area of Silesia was constructed along the sixty-kilometer interbellum border of Poland and Germany in the area of then-divided Upper Silesia. The line of fortifications was to defend the Polish part of Upper Silesia against the aggression of the German troops. One of the most important elements of the central part of the line is the Łagiewniki stronghold located between Bytom and Chorzów. It was a set of fortifications, among which we can find a neatly renovated bunker at 168 Katowicka Street in Chorzów. It is a two-floor construction, with almost two meter thick walls.
