Tychy (Tichau) is a city with a population of just over 130,000 in the province of Silesia in southern Poland. Tychy is approximately 12 miles south of Katowice. The Gostynia river, a tributary of the Vistula, flows through the city.

Tyskie, one of the most popular beers in Poland, is produced in Tychy. There are also two large automotive factories – a Fiat car factory and a Isuzu plant producing engines for General Motors cars.
