Łódź – Poland’s third biggest city, is one of the most dynamically changing cities in the region. For a long time Łódź was famous mostly for its prestigious cinema school and for textile industry. Then the industrial activity became history, but the city has much to offer. Old factories are being transformed into shopping & culture centers while boutique hotels and cozy restaurants spring up in ulica Piotrkowska.
Visiting this city, you can observe contrasts and traces of its history. No wonder that łódź is considered a paradise for urban explorers. Beautiful eclectic palaces stand next to neglected 19-th century tenement houses. Artistic installations appear in the least expected places. Moreover, you can admire impressive street art on derelict buildings.
Let us show you one of the coolest cities in Poland, perfect for a one-day trip as it’s only 135 km from Warsaw.
PROGRAM OF THE TOUR
We pick you up at your hotel/accommodation. We visit Herbst Palace and Księży Młyn – you will see a beautifully renovated palace which belonged to one of the richest family in the city, the building of a former factory and a beautiful neighborhood built for factory workers. Then we’ll go to Radegast station – the place from which Łódź’s Jewish population was deported to concentration and death camps. Next step will be a visit in Manufactura – popular commercial and cultural center organized in former factory buildings after revitalization.
The last part will be a stroll along Piotrkowska St. – the longest shopping street in Poland. After a break for lunch in this lively area we’ll explore its backyards looking for artistic installations, street art and designers’ shops.
After the tour we’ll head back to Warsaw.
