Lodz is a cultural mecca of Poles, Jews, Russians, and Germans all living harmoniously and producing an established community of scientists, industrialists, and artists. They have all left indelible marks on the city. A visit to Lodz should begin with a stroll along Piotrkowska Street for an overview of the best architecture, and many of the buildings have become historical monuments. Visiting Ghetto Litzmannstadt is a somber reminder of the city’s grim Shoah history. Other places to see in Lodz are the Izrael Poznanski’s Complex, including Manufaktura, Edward Herbst Mansion, Oscar Kon Palace, and Radegast Station. Lodz is also famous for its film school with notable graduates in the film industry.
