Lodz

Lodz is a remarkable city located in central Poland, only a 90-minute drive from Warsaw, at the intersection of the main highways and central railway lines. The hamlet was first mentioned in the 12th century but its development occurred in the 19th century when the gord became a real power to the extent that it become the second largest and one of the richest metropolis in Poland.

In the 19th century in Lodz, numerous newly-opened textile factories had a significant impact on the city’s development, and hence the beautiful palaces of their owners. The best-known and the wealthiest was Izrael Poznanski whose residence can be now admired in the very center of the city. One of the former textile factories now houses Manufaktura - the largest commercial, service and entertainment complex in Poland. In addition to numerous shops and restaurants, there is also a branch of the Museum of Art ms2 - one of the richest art collections of 20th and 21st century in Europe.

Lodz was rich enough to attract local and overseas investors, and its glory days it hosted Poles, Germans, Jews and Russians. Their presence has been very well marked in urban architecture. It was thanks to visitors and tourists that Lodz has been called the ‘City of Four Cultures’. Since 2010, the festival ‘Lodz of Four Cultures’ has started to be organized annually.

Almost 4.2 kilometer-long Piotrkowska Street is considered the very center of the city. It’s where you can feel the atmosphere of this post-industrial city. Among prestigious boulevards such as Champs Elysees in Paris or Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg, Piotrkowska Street is one of the longest promenades in Europe.
