Description

For that reason Lodz used to be called the Promised Land or the polish Manchester. However, the greatest strength of this city comes from its history.

During World War II, the Nazi Germans annexed Lodz to the Reich and changed its name to Litzmannstadt. Shortly after that, they built a ghetto and locked over 200.000 Polish Jews up inside it. Only few people survived. The district has survived though, and today it commemorates those tragic events.

Lodz is the city of contrasts. In the middle of the maze of factories and workshops the picturesque center is hidden. It’s the most beautiful part of the city. There are plenty of splendid, pre-war buildings with rich decorated facades. They represent a unique style that you will find neither in Warsaw nor in Krakow. Why? The answer is very simple: the richest people, who were in charge to decide about the future of the city, lived exactly in this place. Here, the smoke from factory chimneys was mixing with the smoke from their owners’ cigars. It takes only one hour and a half to get to Lodz from Warsaw and it’s really worth doing it.

Tour in a retro Fiat 126p
Such a great way to see the city and all surroundings!
Very intresting history about communism and how it effected Warsaw /from Erik & Cornelia
Great time exploring Warsaw and drinking vodka
We had a wonderful time with Paweł exploring Warsaw and getting around in the Fiat. This was the ideal way to explore the city as soon as we got there, to get our bearings and to get out and see a lot in a fairly short period of time. Pawel knew a ton about the city and we enjoyed just spending the time driving around together, learning some history and drinking vodka throughout.
Very fun, very interesting
A great way to explore the city. Would like to thank our tour guide Marcin, who was very informative and interesting and also made us both feel comfortable driving the car. The car is very easy and fun to drive. The tour teaches you about polish history and shows you historic monuments all over the city. Would definitely recommend, me and my girlfriend had lots of fun.
