Biala Bielsko  Bielsko-Biala is one of the biggest cities in Podbeskidzie region. The name of the city comes from the name of the river which is a former border between two districts- Bielsko (western) and Biala (eastern). These two districts were joined in In fact, most of city residents abbreviate the name to „Bielsko”. The first mention of Bielsko settlement dates from 1312, however, it was probably founded about one hundred years before that date. In the early nineteenth century, Bielsko and Biala were under occupation (Bielsko- Austrian; Biala- Prussian). On the other hand, at that time they were really well developing in weaving industry. The city was well known of its multilaterality- it was settled by Poles, Germans and Jewish- and its religious diversity. In 1939, when the World War II began, the Germans joined Bielsko and Biala with the Third Reich. Polish people were under constant persecution and most of the Bielsko’s Jewish were deported the the extermination camp in Auschwitz. The only benefit of incorporation to Nazi Germany was that Bielsko avoided being destroyed by bombing, that’s why a lot of old buildings survived until today. There are a lot of reasons for living or coming to Bielsko-Biala: - it is settled in beautiful Podbeskidzie region, surrounded by mountains, what gives the opportunity to organise mountain trips throughout the year and to go skiing in winter - the city centre has a unique architecture, dating from XIX century (that’s why it was often called „small Vienna”) which is being gradually renovated - 30km from Bielsko-Biala there is a lake which is a good place for sailing and windusrfing - the standart of living is high comparing to other cities in Poland; also the level of unemployment is really low and many others...  Population (2009) 175,513 City Area 124,51 km² Mayor Jacek Krywult Voivodeship Silesian II LO im.

The Animated Films Studio THE RANGE OF AFS’s SERVICES: 2D & 3D Animation, Making advertising Educational films Information films Videoclips, Advertising graphics, Sound recording (includes recording sound effects) The Animated Film Studio was opened in 1947, and moved to Bielsko-Biala in In the same year there was the first film “Was this a dream?” (about World War II) created was the year when the most popular polish animated film “Bolek and Lolek” was made. This film has been incredibly popular among children but also adults for 23 years, and despite shutting down its production in 1986, it is stil well known. Apart from “Bolek i Lolek”, the other really common film was a story about a dog called „Reksio”. The Studio created over 1000 films, which won about 250 awards in Poland and abroad. However, nowadays the children often prefer to watch chinese cartoons rather than see some of these bit elder ones created in The Animated Films Studio. The memory of .. those polish classic animated films is slowly vanishing. So, we must definitely care about it. II LO im. Adama Asnyka w Bielsku-Białej

Tramways in Bielsko-Biała Unfortunately, during the comunism period in Poland due to underestimating the role of tramways they were withdrawn from use. There were 2 lines functioning, the longest one was almost 5km long and ran from the Main Rail Station to the "Gypsy Wood" (southern public park, common for recreational purpouses). Tramways in Bielsko-Biała ran in years They appeared in Bielsko much earlier than in other polish cities (even than in Vienna, Austria). Opened in 1895 Closed in 1971 II LO im.
