Lodz for entertainment
Without a doubt, Lodz can also be called a city of festivals. World-famous fashion designers and labels such as Kenzo, Prada and Gucci converge on Lodz twice a year for Poland's biggest fashion event, the biannual FashionPhilosophy Fashion Week Poland, where they are joined by young Polish designers. The city also hosts a number of international events each year, including the prestigious international photography festival Fotofestiwal. The International Festival of Comics and Games features drawing workshops and scenario workshops, as well as numerous exhibitions and meetings. The Explorers Festival is recommended to all fans of extreme sports, mountains and travel. During the Light Move Festival you can admire buildings lit up in various colours and watch multimedia projections on their walls. Other major annual events include the Lodz Design Festival, the Se-Ma-For Film Festival, the Lodz of Four Cultures Festival and the international music producers festival Soundedit.
Lodz for lovers of street art
The Urban Forms Gallery is a permanent street art exhibition in a public space in Lodz. At present it consists of 30 large-format paintings or frescoes painted directly onto the side walls of city centre buildings. Together they form an art trail that is open to everyone: citizens and tourists alike.
