Łódź – Lodz

see the image gallery at the bottom of the page

A great advantage of Łódź is its central location. The city is situated both in the central part of Poland and of Europe, as a result of which “everything is close-by”. A convenient location goes hand in hand with good communication – the agglomeration is surrounded by a number of highways and expressways which provide fast connections with cities in Poland and abroad.

Łódź is a city of contrasts which intrigues almost at every step. It is full of factories and, at the same time, it is very green; eclectic but also avant-garde. Lodz dazzles with the lavishness of factory owners’ palaces and astonishes with artistic installations.

Although the history of the city spans over six hundred years, the dynamic development of Lodz came a little less than 200 ago. From a small town it was in the beginning of the 19th century, it quickly became the “promised land” giving dozens of thousands of families hope for a better tomorrow. Around the city, you can find numerous traces of the multicultural working class melting pot. Lodz was such a pot up to World War II. After the war, having become the cinematic capital of Poland, it opened another important chapter of its history. In 2017 Łódź was inducted into the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and named UNESCO City of Film.

Today it is a creative city, a city of festivals, a city which is being discovered all over again. It is located in the very heart of Poland, at the crossing of two main highways – you could say that all the roads lead to… Lodz.

Come, stay over, get to know it and get a taste of it!
