Discover Poland: Photo Walk in Łódź


Lodz (Polish: Łódź) is the third-largest city in Poland after Warsaw and Kraków located in the central part of the country.

Five interesting facts about the city:

  • It was once a small village that first appears in written records in 1332.
  • In 1423, it was granted city rights.
  • It is internationally known for its National Film School, a cradle for the most renowned Polish actors and directors, including Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polanski, and in 2017 was inducted into the UNESCO Creative Cities network and named UNESCO City of Film.
  • The Piotrkowska Street, which remains the high-street and main tourist attraction in the city, runs north to south for a little over five kilometres. This makes it one of the longest commercial streets in the world.
  • Famous people born in the city: George E. Stone (I) (actor; 1903–1967), Julian Tuwim (poet; 1894–1953), Arthur Rubinstein (pianist; 1887–1982), Piotr Sobocinski (cinematographer; 1958–2001).
