What to expect

Łódź is Poland’s third-biggest city, called the „Polish Manchester”. It is one of the most dynamically changing cities in the region. During many years considered as a typical grey industrial town, famous mostly for its prestigious cinema school, now Łódź has much more to offer. Old factories are being transformed into shopping & culture centers while boutique hotels and cozy restaurants spring up in Piotrkowska Street – the longest street in Poland. It’s a heaven for urban explorers, at every step you can observe contrasts and traces of its history: beautiful eclectic palaces that belonged to the factory owners and neglected 19th-century tenement houses, artistic installations where you least expect them, impressive street art on derelict buildings. Courtyards are full of mysteries and surprises.

Visit one of the coolest cities in Poland, perfect for a one-day trip as it’s only 135 km from Warsaw.

Details of the tour:

Visit Herbst Palace and Księży Młyn -admire an excellently 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 you'll go to Radegast station - the place from which Łódź's Jewish population was deported to concentration and death camps. The next step will be a visit to Manufactura - popular commercial and cultural center organized in former factory buildings after revitalization.

The last part will be a stroll along Piotrkowska Street - the longest shopping street in Poland. After a relaxing lunch break in this lively area, you'll explore its backyards looking for artistic installations, street art, and designers' shops.

At the end of our tour, you'll catch a train to go back to Warsaw.
