Lodz

3.9

Boat City

Nicknamed the "Polish Manchester" because of its largely industrial character, Lodz draws a growing number of tourists with its rejuvenated central districts, which offer shopping, dining, and entertainment. In the 19th century Lodz grew wealthy thanks to its prosperous textile industry, but its glory days ended abruptly with the economic difficulties of the 1930s. Neglected during the communist era, the city long remained a drab urban center with limited tourist appeal. Although it still lacks the glitzy charm of some of Europe's other major cities, Lodz now represents one of the country's up-and-coming travel destinations, boasting a lively cultural scene and several internationally recognized film festivals. When using our Poland day trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Lodz

Lodz offers fewer inexpensive hostel options than most other Polish towns, but given the city's good selection of mid-range hotels, most visitors can easily find comfortable lodgings suited to their budget and needs. The finest hotels cluster in the city center, where comfort and proximity to major attractions come at a relatively high cost. That said, many centrally located establishments offer steep discounts on weekends, when you can choose a spacious hotel room or well-appointed apartment at a fraction of the price charged during the week.
