Step 1: Visiting Palaces

 › entry 1 of 8 › view all entries

Let me explain: in XIX century Lodz was one of the most important (well, think that still is) and wealthiest cities in Poland. Why? Because of the textiles. It was one of the main producers of textiles in Europe. Factory owners was mainly Jews, sometimes Germans or German-Jews. They built palaces for them and families. In Lodz you can see lots of palaces, manors and residences that was built for factory-owners and other wealthy people. Just see Piotrkowska Street.

Nowadays this Palaces were changed into museums et cetera so you don't have any problems with visiting them. I do it quite often. I would like to show you 3 Palaces. My fauvorites. I won't tell you the details here, cause I've already written reviews about them.

First is almost a symbol of Lodz- Palace of Izrael Poznanski, situated in the city centre is the Museum of history of Lodz. It is also situated next to Manufaktura shopping centre (but about this I will tell you some other time).

Second: The Museum of Cinematography was Karol Scheibler's residence. It's a fantastic place situated next to the Palm House

Third: In the Priest's Mill area: Herbst's residence. I love that place. I used to go there in my junior-high because they organized fantastic concerts of classical music.
