Opole is a city situated in south-western Poland on the Oder River (Odra). It has a population of 125,992 (June 2009). Opole is the historic capital of Opole Silesia and the administrative centre of Opole Region (Voivodeship).

Opole is widely known in Poland due to the National Festival of Polish Song (Krajowy Festiwal Piosenki Polskiej w Opolu, KFPP), which is a review of each year’s achievements of Polish song writers and performers. The festival, established in 1963, is an annual music event taking place in Opole Amphitheatre in June. (Click here to listen to a few pieces of music from Poland or performed by Polish artists.)

Spread across the banks of the Oder, the city is endowed with picturesque canals, bridges and green park areas. Its old town, though small, has interesting historic architecture. The city is known for its 10th-century Church of St. Adalbert and the 14th-century Holy Cross Cathedral. The Piast Tower on Pasieka Island (part of the former Piasts’ castle) is a popular icon of Opole.

Opole is not directly reachable by air. Yet two airports are within easy reach: Wrocław and Katowice (each at the distance of about 80 kilometers; they serve many direct flights from and to the major airports in Europe). Wrocław and Katowice airports are linked by motorways with Opole.
