|7||How to get to Łódź||LAST UPDATED: Friday 11-02-2022 21:47|
Łódź Lublinek Airport services flights to and from Dortmund, Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Milan and Stockholm. The flights are operated by three airlines: Ryanair, Centralwings and LOT. All necessary details can be found on the airport's website www.airport.lodz.pl(an English version is available).
Trains from Warsaw to Łódź are operated by Polish National Railways (PKP). Tickets are available from travel agents and international rail ticket outlets. On arrival, you can purchase your ticket at Warszawa Centralna railway station, from where trains to Łódź depart every hour (from 06:20 to 21:20), to arrive at Łódź Fabryczna station in the city centre around 90 minutes later (additionally, there are also a few trains arriving at Łódź Kaliska Station). To get to Warszawa Centralna from Okecie airport you can either take a city bus or a taxi. Note that it can take as long as 40 minutes to get from the airport to the railway station at peak times. Once in Łódź, it is best to take a taxi to get to the conference centre (the 5-minute journey should not cost more than PLN 15 - around €4).
A map of the Conference Centre area is posted below. The railway station is marked on the larger version of the map.
Trains from Łódź Fabryczna to Warsaw Central Station depart approximately every hour.
The current timetable for a given day can be checked at the webpage of PKP.
Traffic drives on the right. Unleaded petrol is available from all filling stations. The Polish motoring association Polski Zwiazek Motorowy (PZM) can be called on 981 nationwide for assistance. Car hire: Self-drive cars are available at Okecie airport or through various car rental offices in Warsaw and also in Łódź. Charges are usually based on a daily rate plus a kilometre charge. Note that seat belts are compulsory.
|8||THE CITY OF ŁÓDŹ||LAST UPDATED: Tuesday 04-01-2011 22:32|
|THE CITY OF ŁÓDŹ
Łódź, whose history dates back to the 15th century, is the second largest city in Poland, with a population of around seven hundred thousand people.
It is located 130 km (85 miles) south-west of Warsaw, almost in the very centre of Poland. Its short yet remarkable history is closely linked to the growth of the textile industry - even today its most characteristic sights include late-19th-century neogothic factories and well-preserved, magnificent villas and palaces of former factory owners, now turned into museums or sites of various cultural and educational institutions.
Łódź is not only an important industrial centre, but also a city of culture, often referred to as the capital of Polish film. The most renowned Polish film directors such as Krzysztof Kieslowski, Roman Polanski and Andrzej Wajda are all graduates of the world-famous Łódź Film School.
Despite the fact that Lodź is an industrial city, it has the largest urban green areas in Poland, among them Łagiewniki, the biggest municipal park in Poland, with two wooden chapels and a Baroque monastery. Since 1945 Łódź has been an important academic centre with a number of state-run academic institutions, among them the University of Łódź
