Łódź is a city situated at the meeting point of four cultures, which intertwine harmoniously, creating an architectural and cultural gem. The aficionados of spectacular murals, old factories, large industrial machines and post-industrial buildings will fall in love with this city. And also, everyone who is passionate about our cinematography, because Łódź is where the most important Polish films were made. In 2019, Łódź was ranked second on the world in Lonely Planet’s ranking as one of the best value destinations to visit.
Those looking for historical traces will feel wonderful here! Despite its relatively young, industrial history, there are more than 350 monuments in the city alone.

In 2015, the landscape of Łódź was included on the list of “the Monuments of History” as a “multicultural landscape of an industrial city”.

Moniuszki Street and Piotrkowska Street, the post-industrial complexes of the Poznański and Scheibler families, the extraordinary Neo-Baroque Izrael Poznański Palace (known as “the Louvre of Łódź”, now the Museum of the City of Łódź), its former monumental textile mill and other post-industrial buildings (today the Manufaktura Centre). It is an industrial paradise!
