What to do and see in Lodz, Central Poland: The Best Hidden Gems Things to do

September 29, 2021 Brain Ambrose

The third-largest city in Poland, Lodz's historical and global significance is largely due to the ghetto that was built there during World War II. Strolling the picturesque central streets will give you an appreciation for the strength of this city and its citizens. Explore the Muzeum Sztuki modern art museum, which houses one of the most important collections of modern art in Poland, or spend the day thrill-seeking at Lunapark amusement park.

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.

Jewish Cemetery

Reviewed By Rogedan

The best Jewish Cemetry I have seen. This cemetry is cared for and well maintained, AS wonderful exhibit of a funeral parlour at the entrance. Wonderful to see a Jewish cemetry not totally destroyed in Poland. Gret to combine this with a trip to nearby Radegast.

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.

Reviewed By malgorzatar598

When you walk around the palace you have impression that the Herbsts' have just gone for a walk or elsewhere. We admire furniture, paintings, china etc. I didn't expect such a jewel in Łódź. You can find the Museum of Polish art in the former stables.

Pasaz Rozy

Reviewed By patriciapaulina - Madrid, Spain

Very original project in the centre of Łódź. It also has a symbolic meaning and reflects a way that artist’s daughter went through from being blind to be able to see again. Definately worth visiting, especially if you like taking pictures.
