What You'll Do
  • Visit one of Poland's largest, and yet most often overlooked, cities
  • Discover the beauty and traditions of the Old Town
  • Explore the industrial complex of the once powerful Poznanski family
  • See the Scheibler fabric complex, Księży Młyn, leading the post-Soviet revitalization of Lodz
Overview
Journey from Warsaw by train for a day in the historically diverse city of Lodz. Once the industrial heart of Poland, visit the old factories and modernist architecture where Poles, Jews, Germans, and Russians coexisted peacefully before Nazi occupation.
What to Expect
Journey by train from Warsaw to Lodz, one of Poland's largest cities, yet perhaps its most overlooked. Discover the modernist architecture that was once home to the country's richest display of multiculturalism.

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.

Upon arrival you'll visit the Old Town and saunter through the industrial complex of the old manufacturing giants, the Poznanski family. Then compare that with the Scheibler fabric factories, one of the best examples of the city's post-Soviet revitalization.

The tour ends in Piotrkowska Street, a popular walkway in which you'll enjoy the array of shops, pubs, and restaurants, as well as the sculptures commemorating the famous inhabitant of Lodz, before boarding the train back to Warsaw.
