Abstract: Dąbrowa Górnicza is the largest city in the Silesian Voivodeship in terms of surface area. It is also the greenest area of Silesia and the Dąbrowa Basin. Its name comes from oak forests growing there in the past, hence the presence of green acorns in its coat of arms, next to the crowned eagle and a hammer. This paper discusses the geographical location of the city, its administrative affiliation, the most important events in its history, historical monuments, religious sites, water reservoirs, green areas and a variety of recreation, sports and tourist facilities. Dąbrowa Górnicza is home to “Katowice,” currently Arcelor Mittal Poland S.A., which used to be the largest steel plant in Poland. The area of the city also includes: part of the Błędowska Desert – the only area in Europe that is covered by loose sand; “Karst springs” – the area of dolomite and limestone hills with springs ejecting 50 liters of crystalline calcium‑magnesium water per second; and an adit on the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian province, currently a part of the “Sztygarka” city museum.
