  • Discover a new symbol of Lodz - Manufaktura
  • Take a stroll along Piotrkowska Street
Full description

Discover how to become a millionaire by being a bootblack and follow the traces of 19th-century factory owners. To get the best walking tour around Lodz, you must visit Manufaktura - a former factory that was renovated a few years ago.

Nowadays, this complex is located in the city center and is a shopping mall. It is also a center for culture, trade, and entertainment. One of the gates of the triumphal arch of the old mill remains. See Poznanski Palace belonging to the most famous factory magnate in Poland. Currently, this building houses the City Museum of Lodz, where you can admire the Neo-Baroque facade, staircase, dining- and ballroom.

Then, have a walk along the longest European trading route – Piotrkowska Street.

This pedestrian street is the heart of the city, full of clubs, restaurants, bars, and a wide range of cultural sites. Admire old buildings, renovated factories, and a Lodz’ specialty – Rickshaws.

At the end, you will be invited to the White Factory (Biała Fabryka), which is home of Textile Museum (Muzeum Włókiennictwa). The museum houses a number of looms, old materials and examples of the weaver’s art.

5-hours walking tour option:

After the 3-hour walk, you will also see the places connected to Jewish history and the Litzmannstadt Ghetto. First, visit the Jewish cemetery, the largest in Europe. A number of the tombs commemorate factory owners like Silberstein, Prusak or Stiller.

Do not miss the spectacular Israel Poznanski Mausoleum in an Art Nouveau style. Then, visit Radegast Station (Stacja Radogoszcz) – railway station where more than 140,000 people (mostly Jews) were deported to the German concentration camps in Poland.

Hear stories about the brave people who smuggled food from the countryside to the ghetto and escaped from the forced labor camps in Germany.
