Ksiezy Mlyn

Reviewed By 344jerzyk

Most of the visitors to the city of Lodz are more-or-less aware that it is a very good example of the big industrial city that "burst-out" of the small village-like city in the second half of the XIX c. But only few of them have a knowledge, that this is probably one of the last places on the Earth where you can see "classic industrial town" with the factory (unfortunately now in ruins), proprietor's palace and workers dwellings. This is what Ksiezy Mlyn is. For some visitors it may be interesting, that in the second half of the XXth c. factory was still active, and that was the only working factory where pope John Paul II visited the mostly women crew.

Manufaktura

An attraction for tourists, a hangout for Łodz residents, heaven for gourmets and renowned brand lovers, a place full of life and positive energy - Manufaktura has very quickly become the city’s flagship, as recognisable as Piotrkowska Street. Today it is hard to picture Łodz without Manufaktura. With no beach in the summer, no kermis and ice rink in the winter, no concerts in the market square or tasty evenings in local restaurants. Manufaktura means: museums, cinema, theatre, a quarter of a thousand boutiques and stores, playgrounds for the youngest, fitness club, a few dozens restaurants and cafes. But its centre is the over 3 ha large Łodz Women Textile Workers Market Square, which serves as a friendly public space. Here cultural and entertainment events are organised, attracting both residents and tourists. Here the Europe’s longest fountain illuminates the darkness with colours and envelops superbly designed recreational areas in its murmur.

Hotels rarely exceed my expectations. This one is awesome in the real sense of the word. One of the dilapidated buildings in the complex of a former factory has been renovated to a very high standard. Some walls have been left raw, and the metal skeleton of building is visible. Daylight penetrates four storeys through beautiful skylights and the wells are a major feature of modern architecture of outstanding calibration, with both style and functionality. Beautiful furniture and soft furnishings represent those that people once made in the factory. Lovely room, good service, fabulous breakfast. The restaurant is one of the best in Łódź. No need to go far to start enjoying the city. Just step outside into the Manufaktura complex. Street food, fountains, cafes, bars, restaurants, a spacious, airy shopping mall gathering all brands, Polish and international, Cinema City in a city that’s UNESCO protected for its ongoing contribution to cinema, a world-class museum of modern art.... and much more. Excellent hotel, fascinating city.

Radegast Station - Independence Traditions Museum in Lodz

Reviewed By pawel_hbg - Sopot, Poland

The Radegast Station during the World War II was transformed into a station used to deliver food and industrial materials to the ghetto. The station’s building standing to this day was built in 1941 and in the same year the station became the final point of trains transporting Jews from western European countries and provincial ghettos from Wartheland. Currently the Station is under the care of the Museum of Independence Traditions and it is a must to see when you are in Lodz.

Gutenberg Home

Reviewed By SYLTERSTRAND - Warsaw, Poland

Gutenberg Home is a highly-ornamented eclectic town house called "Under Gutenberg" as it has a statue of Johannes Gutenberg in the middle of its front wall (also called "a house with dragons" - you can see four metal dragons at the front of the building) - located at 86 Piotrkowska Street in Lodz. The house was built in 1896, completely renovated in 2011. It is really worth seeing when you are in the middle of the pedestrianised section of Piotrkowska Street.
