Taxi is the vehicle I recommend you the most to travel around Katowice if you are not the Polish speaking visitor and reading the bus or tram route planns can be a little bit problematic and difficult for you. Especially if Polish cabs are not very expensive. Besides I find Polish cab drivers to be quite hones to foreigners, so you don't have to be afraid of paying more only because you don't know the city.

You don't catch the taxi on the street. You should go on the special place where all cabs are waiting for customers and you should take the first one in the line/queue. The other way to catch the cab is to phone the taxi company and give them the location and the time you want the taxi to wait for you. If you are phoning in the night-time you have 30% discount than in case you found the taxi on the street.

Giving tips is not required, however if you want to do this, the most common amount is something between 2-5 zl.
