From the nearest international train station (not in my city), which is Rotterdam Centraal, there are trains to:

Belgium
Antwerpen
Mechelen
Bruxelles (city and airport)

France
Lille
Paris

There are also seasonal services to other cities in France, but there are just weekly trains for 2-3 months, so I'm not including them.

Unfortunately, no international trains pass through Łódź nowadays. Even though it's the third biggest city in Poland with the population of 700 000, until 2007 it was second biggest.

The last one did in 2005. "Bohemia" Warsaw-Wrocław-Prague (Moscow-Warsaw-Wrocław-Prague on selected days). It got then redirected through Poznań (Warsaw-Poznań-Wrocław-Prague instead of Warsaw-Łódź-Wrocław-Prague). Currently, it does not exist at all and the only train connection from Wrocław to Prague is by regional trains, with a few train changes.

According to http://www.strony.toya.net.pl/~pszal...Z_200512_1.htm - a short history of international trains in Łódź:
1980 - to Dresden-Frankfurt-Paris, to Prague, to Leipzig, Moscow-Prague through train
1994 - to Leipzig, Moscow-Prague through train, to Frankfurt (on selected days to Brno and Geneva, once a week to Madrid)
2001-2003 - to Dresden and the Moscow-Prague through train
2004-2005 - only Prague and Moscow

Actually, even the first trains in Łódź were international trains...

The first railway line (1865) was the Kolej Fabryczno-Łódzka railway, which was a connector to the Warsaw-Vienna railway (1846). Which was connecting the Russian Empire with the Austrian Empire.

The second one was the Warsaw-Kalisz railway (1902), connecting the Russian Empire with the German Empire.

But it's the past. The Warsaw-Kalisz railway lies now fully in Poland, and serves as a part of one of the Warsaw-Wrocław connections (through Łódź - the shortest one, but not the fastest one due to quite poor condition of tracks). The Warsaw-Vienna railway crosses three countries now: Poland, Czech Republic and Austria. There are still direct Warsaw-Vienna trains, and if I am not mistaken, they use the same route (OK, one of them uses a newer route in the part from Warsaw to Katowice).

Now, the closest station with international trains is Kutno (population 45 000), a small station on the Warsaw-Poznań-Berlin route, 60 km from Łódź. Concerning international trains, only those Warsaw-Berlin stop there. And the next one is Warsaw, 130 km from Łódź, with the widest choice of international trains in Poland. Although much weakened from what was in the past.

For example, the only trains that go further to the west than to Berlin, are luxury Russian sleeper trains to Paris. The only cost-effective connection further than to Berlin was the Jan Kiepura train - suspended in 2016. There is also no trains to the southern part of Germany.

The best situation is with the trains to the south. We have connections to Prague, Vienna and Budapest. Although the problem is, all of them cross the Polish border in the same neighborhood, close to Ostrava in Czech Republic. All the other railway border crossings on our southern border, though some of them used by long-distance trains in the past, are now either used by local trains only, or have the traffic suspended.

There even used to be direct summer connections to Bulgaria a few years ago - although they were suspended, then not a long time ago Russians redirected they trains to Bulgaria through Poland due to the situation in Ukraine - but Russian international trains are expensive.

East - here it's also quite good. Two working crossings with Ukraine and one with Belarus, through which also trains to Moscow go.

To the north - here, the situation is worst. No trains to the Kaliningrad Circuit at all. On the connection to Lithuania - there used to be trains to Shestokai from Warsaw, with a connection to Vilnius there. For a few years, there was no such connection at all. Now, there is only a local Białystok-Kaunas train. It's a 250 km route, but there are only typically local trains on it...

Not so bad. Although could be better.

To Warsaw - every hour or even more frequently, by 2 companies (3 companies on weekends).

Kraków - 5 trains/a day
Katowice - 4 trains/a day
Wrocław - 4 x IC + 2 x regional train (based on old EN57 EMU's, take the IC if you can)
Poznań - 4 x IC + 3 x regional train (theoretically should be on renovated EN57, but old EN57 trains appear very often), IC's use a different route from the regional trains and they are through trains to Szczecin
Szczecin - 4 x IC (same trains as to Poznań)
Gdańsk - 4 trains/a day
Białystok - 6 x IC (trains through Warsaw)
Olsztyn - 1 x IC
Lublin - 1 x IC (through Warsaw, the shorter route through Radom is not used any more)
Bydgoszcz - 3 trains/a day (through trains to Gdańsk)
Kielce - no direct connections, and the fastest connection is through Warsaw
Rzeszów - no direct connections, the fastest option is to change trains in Kraków
Gorzów Wielkopolski - no direct connections, change to a regional train in the town of Krzyż which is between Poznań and Szczecin
Zielona Góra - also no direct trains, change in Poznań

But probably the most interesting case is the city of Płock. They have NO long-distance trains at all, only regional ones. And no sensible train connection with Warsaw (the trains must go through Kutno). Population 120 000.

From my city (all destinations are domestic):

- Eindhoven (4/h)
- 's-Hertogenbosch (4/h)
- Nijmegen (2/h)
- Arnhem (2/h)
- Zwolle (2/h)
- Breda (6/h)
- Roosendaal (2/h)

That's about it for until April. Then after four months the following will be re-added:

- Rotterdam (2/h)
- The Hague (2/h)

We are by far the single largest city in the country not connected to:

- Utrecht (used to be 2/h until December 10)
- Amsterdam (in a far past there were some direct trains, most recently in 2005 on irregular basis)

And where the first is a nuisance that could easily be added by tweaking the schedule, the second is a nightmare to go to as it is either a long detour or (like Rotterdam and The Hague) highly unreliable (>12.5% is cancelled on average) connection.

In the further past we had trains to Turnhout (until 1934 at least), while until 1994 we had a direct international train to Cologne. The peculiar thing is that Schengen and other incentives to tighten connections with other countries came from this period while this international train was scrapped. And now neighbouring Eindhoven is desparate for a new train to Germany for obvious reasons.

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!
