Welcome to the region where all the roads from the north to the south and from the east to the west meet. The region that is equally close to any nook of our country.

   The Łódź region can offer various attractions, which will satisfy even the most demanding tourists. Vast scenic parks, nature reserves, the enchanting valleys of the Pilica and Warta rivers, and the Jeziorsko and Sulejów man-made lakes attract everyone who likes resting in the bosom of nature.

   In beautiful surroundings you can admire precious monuments of architecture: the collegiate church in Tum, former abbeys in Sulejów and Witów, monasteries in Gidle, Wielgomłyny and Piotrków Trybunalski, churches in Inowłódz and Warta, castles and ruins of castles in Łęczyca, Piotrków, Oporów or Bolesławiec, former residences of noblemen and bishops in Nieborow, Walewice, Wolbórz or Skierniewice, historic manor houses in Ożarów and Tubądzin, and various examples of wooden folk, sacred architecture. These places preserve the history of Poland and the region. The history which is worth learning about and which can astonish and entertain you.

   Hiking trails, bicycle routes and riding trails await the lovers of active holidays. Enthusiasts of kayaking, sailing and surfing can also find something for themselves. Tourists and sportsmen are invited to come to Spała – a pre-war residence of the Polish presidents and tsars, the place where members of royal families used to hunt. Currently it is a well-known rest and recreation resort and the Olympic Preparation Centre.

   Each of the sub-regions of the Łódź area carefully cultivates the local folklore customs and rites. Traditions of embroidery, paper cutting and wickerwork are very vivid. You can still admire works of sculptors, blacksmiths, hand weavers and potters. Folk groups are very active such as folk bands, and folk artists – singers, folk musicians and storytellers.

   And what about Łódź – the capital of the region? This is the city that can be either loved or hated. It is the city where the history of old factories intersperses with the here and now and modern technology. It is a still vivid lesson of the past and modern history taught by museums of: Textiles, Cinematography, of the City of Łódź or Traditions of Independence. The Łodź Museum of Fine Arts is one of the oldest and  best-known museums of modern art in Europe.

   Finally, you are bound to take a stroll down Piotrkowska Street – the main promenade of the city – with magnificent Art Nouveau and eclectic edifices and palaces of the former industrialists. You can pay a visit to the Poznański Palace nearby or see the industrial complex of “Księży Młyn” or simply take a rest in the shade of  a pavement café or sip your beer in one of hundreds of pubs in Łódź.

   Łódź is the region “on the trail” with diversified accommodation places. You can put up a tent, place a caravan, hire a bungalow, and rent a room in a farmhouse, guesthouse or luxurious hotel. This is the region that is really worth visiting.

Welcome to the Łódź Region !
