Łódź - one of the largest cities in Poland

It was second largest polish city but now in Kraków there are probably more inhabitants.
In the 1823–1873 period, the city's population doubled every ten years. (fast development of textile industry) Łódź was small town in the XVIIth century.

Great thread

But it isn't Grand Hotel

It was a building of Ludwik Geyer's Stock Society (Towarzystwo Akcyjne Ludwika Geyera)), now it's some bank.

Poland has such a nice architecture, but unfortunately it gets mostly RUINED by all the visual pollution in most of the buildings. Haven't any laws on this subject been discussed over there? The cities would be so much more beautiful.

However, the pics are still nice and the city looks good overall! By the way, how do you actually pronounce Lodz with all those marks in the consonants?

How? :-) Well, it's good reason to show it. It's something like that:

beautiful architecture, specially the Izrael Posnanski Palace. The city looks a bit deteriorate, but as long as Poland becomes richer as an EU member Lodz will look more like central and western european cities.
