Museum of History of City Lodz aka Poznanski Palace Reviews
Aug 20, 2007
The Poznanski Palace is known as one of the largest and greatest residence of its type. The Palace (was built in XIX century) was bought by Jewish factory-owner Izrael Poznanski in the year 1877. The effort of many architects (mainly Hilary Majewski and Juliusz Jung), designers and artists resulted in the present shape of the building, which is much more decorative and comfortable than others in Lodz. The front of the palace is very interesting and has its ideological program. The building is decorated with copulas, pinnacles, and shields with monogram "P", garlands of fruit and other architectural details. The main part of the building was designed in neo-baroque style. The main accent of the interior facade is the terraced portico. The palace is functionally connected with a huge cotton production plant, a housing estate for workers and other accompanying buildings. In the year 1975 the main part of the building was adapted by Museum of History of City Lodz. Don't forget to visit beautiful garden, where you can see a lot of fabulous sculptures.
