Rybnik… after hours
For many years the city has been a symbol of cinder-track racing team. The most successful speedway rider in Rybnik Antoni Woryna – world champion in 1965 and 1966 – is now the patron of the stadium, where the football matches and concerts are held. Rock fans fulfilled their dreams during Bryan Adams concert (in 2011) and Guns’n Roses (2012).
The city constantly improves the conditions for school sports, including the handicapped. Young people during the training benefit from the developed infrastructure around the stadium, sports halls and swimming pools of Municipal Sports and Recreation Centre, sports fields created within the “Orliki” project. In the city there are basketball, cinder track, football, judo, volleyball, chess and fencing clubs.
Rybnik has the District and Municipal Public Library and several subsidiaries (school and public) and four galleries as well as the museum, which documents the local and regional history.
