After a century marred by wartime occupation, economic woes, and industrial decline, Lodz - Poland’s third-largest city - is on the rise. 19th century Lodz was the heart of the Polish textile industry and the sheer number of factories there earned the city its reputation as the “Polish Manchester”. The local economy attracted immigrants from far and wide, with an emphasis on Jewish, Russian, and German culture, as well as that of its native Poles. Travel to this vibrant metropolis to explore its rich cultural heritage and discover the modernist architecture that was once home to the country's richest display of multiculturalism.

Start your route with a visit to the city's Old Town. Now inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, after World War II, much of Warsaw lay in ruins. But it has been painstakingly restored to its former glory, with buildings dating from the 13th to the 20th-Century.
