Lodz is one of the youngest, and one of the largest cities in Poland. The word Lodz means boat. The first information about Lodz is from the year 1332 about the village Lodzia (Latin), witch was the own of Kujawy’s bishops.


It has many beautiful buildings dating back to the 19th century, in the Art Nouveau architectural style.

One can get close to nature(without any hills and large water body here) in one of the city’s many parks, most notably Lagiewniki (the largest city park in Europe), Zdrowie, and Poniatowski. Lodz Zoo, and Lodz Botanical Gardens also offer pleasant opportunities for leisure.

Lodz has one of the best museums of modern art in Poland, Muzeum Sztuki on Wieckowskiego Street, which displays art by all important contemporary Polish artists.
