3 Maja St. – the fifth most expensive street in Poland – is being reshaped into a modern and pedestrian friendly space. The meaning and popularity of the area should to be influenced and strengthened soon not only by the new decor and infrastructure but also by the opening of Galeria Katowicka.
The street’s pavement is being made of cobblestone and granite to be featured by new lighting, street furnitures and huge bowls holding greenery.
