Where is Rybnik Located?
Rybnik is located in the middle of a field and Meadow landscape, as a traditionally recognizable industrial centre. Crossed by rivers and streams, the chessboard-like juxtaposed fields form an interesting contrast to the ever-decreasing chimneys and supported towers of the old coal city. The fish ponds, which once formed the basis for the city coat of arms, are today outside the Urban Development.
