I love Łódź for different reasons but the fact that it is one of "the greenest cities" is one of the most important things. My friends, living in other cities, can enjoy their lakes, rivers or mountains, but when I'm somewhere else, I quite miss my green spaces. I enjoy the fact that through my windows I have a view on a tiny park. And this amount of parks in Lodz. Plus you just need to go to the city border to be in woods. There are so many activities you can do there, and it's far more interesting than spending time in fitness club or something. In our parks you can play tennis, do some archery, ride a horse, not to mention walking, running, riding a bike and things like this.

I've read that in Lodz we have 33 free-access-parks and 11 of them are nature monuments. I don't know if it's a big number or not, and I really don't care. We have also this huge forest in the city area (which is the biggest in Europe city area's forest, I've also read that)- Lagiewniki.

I like parks especially in autumns and springs (summers and winters are not that interesting). I've made some photos this week. Autumn is coming. This time is so fantastic. Colourful leafs, and huge amount of them on the ground. I make photos mostly during this two seasons. But maybe I will find something from winter time.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present you the parks of Lodz
