DescriptionJourney 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 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.
