In Łódź you can stroll through the lively Piotrkowska street, admire the street art that colours every corner of the city and spend a day of fun and shopping at the Manufaktura. Poland Złoty Polish Image Image Image Via Piotrkowska Via Piotrkowska is one of the most lively and fascinating places in the city, it is 7 kilometres long and is considered by many an open-air art gallery. In addition to the many shops and restaurants, this street is populated by many palaces with beautiful facades in Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau style. Very interesting are also the sculptures placed in different points of the street, which depict some of the most important characters related to the city while performing curious actions such as playing the piano or changing the light bulb of a lamppost. Image Manufaktura Manufaktura, once home to the textile industry of the city, was transformed in 2006 into a large shopping centre in which, in addition to more than 300 shops, there are also many bars, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, hotels and even sports facilities and museums, including the Museum of Art and the Textile Museum. The latter is one of the most important museums in the city, where you can discover the history of industry that has made Łódź one of the most important cities in Poland. But Manufaktura is also one of the places in the city where nightlife comes to life at night. Image Street Art Łódź is famous for its distinctive street art works that liven up and colour every corner of the city. One of the main works is located in Piotrkowska Street, and is one of the largest murals in Europe depicting a boat (Łódź in fact means boat in Polish) that flies over the buildings of the city. Another fascinating work, also in Piotrkowska Street, is an alley where the buildings are completely covered with thousands of fragments of mirrors, creating an incredible optical effect, which in sunny days becomes even more spectacular.
