This year, the prestigious award was given to Manufaktura in Łódź. The management of the Manufaktura heard the words, “And the Golden Certificate goes to...” on Thursday, 23 September at the awards ceremony in Warsaw, Porczyńskich Gallery.

The Golden POT Certificate is awarded to tourism products which have received a POT certificate and significantly expanded their activities. This year is the third time these awards have been given. Previous award winners were the Augustów Canal – Papal Route, and the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian Voivodeship.

Manufaktura’s potential as a tourist attraction was first recognised by the Polish Tourism Organisation in 2006, when it was granted the title of the Polish Tourism Product of the Year. The aim of this contest is to find the most attractive, innovative and tourist-friendly tourism products. This award meant that Manufaktura became a member of the exclusive club of the most recommended tourist attractions in Poland. Manufaktura is a special place in which the old factories of Izrael Poznański were given a new life. It is a tourism product with many cultural, entertainment and leisure attractions, but it is also an important destination for industrial and business tourism. Thanks to the Museum of the Factory, the history of this place will not be forgotten, and the Tourist Information employees will happily give you a tour of Poznański’s old factories, and even help you plan your stay in Łódź and the region. Last year, Manufaktura was visited by almost twenty million people, including foreign tourists.

This Łódź centre was given many Polish and international awards, and Manufaktura was mentioned in domestic and foreign press. We are certain that the Golden POT Certificate will motivate the creators of Manufaktura to further develop, increase their standards, and make Manufaktura an even more widely recognised showcase for Łódź in Poland and abroad.
