Visit Lodz, a city of unique architecture

Lodz, once a centre of the textile industry, is today known as a city of unique palaces, villas and nineteenth-century textile factories. It is a city of art festivals, openings, exhibitions and concerts. It is a metropolis in which historic industrial architecture is complemented by twentieth-century office buildings and factories transformed into stylish modern structures. Lodz is a wonderful example of forward-thinking urban revitalisation, as exemplified by Manufaktura, the former industrial complex founded by textile magnate Izrael Poznanski, now transformed by architects and designers into an arts centre, shopping mall and leisure complex that is famous throughout Europe..

Lodz for the weekend

Begin your exploration of the city on Piotrkowska Street, in the very heart of Lodz, famous for the endless selection of restaurants, cafés and bars along its 5 km length. Don't miss OFF Piotrkowska, a new project which brings together different creative industries under one roof: music clubs, restaurants, fashion studios, concept stores, showrooms and cafés. Then hop aboard a cycle rickshaw, which will take you to the massive Poznanski Palace on the corner of Zachodnia and Ogrodowa Streets. The next important place is Manufaktura, one of the biggest shopping and restaurant centres in Poland and a stunning example of modern architectural conservation and the repurposing of a historic site. This 20 hectare complex boasts a square with fountains (used as a venue for festivals, concerts and other outdoor events), restaurants, more than 300 shops, nightclubs, bowling, a climbing wall and a multiplex cinema.
