The Silesian Uprisings are events of utmost importance for the history of both Silesia and Poland. As the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter, “Without Silesian Uprisings, there would have been no Second Polish Republic as we know it from history, and the Polish borders today would be completely different”.

Mateusz Morawiecki then departed for Złoty Stok, where he informed the residents that a bypass was planned for the town. “Nowadays, we build bypasses around towns and cities; they are meant to form a part of the infrastructure, to attract investors and to alleviate traffic in urban areas,” said the Prime Minister.

Kamieniec Ząbkowicki was the next stop for the Head of the Government; there, the Prime Minister announced that he would recommend that the Council of Ministers grant a municipal charter to the village. “This is such a beautiful place; its history and charm would be a great gift to the rest of Poland,” said Mateusz Morawiecki. The Prime Minister also visited the Marianna Orańska Palace, which is currently undergoing renovation.

Afterwards, the Prime Minister left for Duszniki-Zdrój, where he participated in a signing ceremony for a sponsorship agreement: the Duszniki Arena Stadium, one of the biggest and most modern cross-country skiing and biathlon centres in Poland, now has a naming rights sponsor – the Tauron Energia company. The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of cooperation between the central government and the local government, which, as he stated, “can bring considerable benefits for residents, for sport and for health”.

The final place visited by Mateusz Morawiecki was the town of Niemcza, where the Prime Minister announced restoration of rail transport operations on line 310. This line will enable the residents of Piława Górna, Niemcza, Łagiewniki and Kobierzyce to once more enjoy rail transport services. “We are planning to restore, step by step, transportation connections between such towns. This will increase the mobility of their residents and make it easier for them to find a good job,” concluded the Prime Minister.
