The last edition gained huge popularity among the English-speaking Łódź inhabitants and tourists visiting our city, that is why we have decided to continue the project also in 2021. The idea of 2021 Łódź Summer Tours is not only to make the foreigners familiar with the culture, history and the beauty of Łódź, but also to encourage them to take active part in the city life – says the projects supervisor, Olga Legczylina from Łódź Tourism Organization. Łódź Tourism Organisation wants to catch the interest of newcomers by invoking the idea of multicultural Promised Land, by telling the stories about great factory owners’ fortunes, the unprecedented career of the city which became in time the city of avant-garde art and The UNESCO City of Film – states Krzysztof Olkusz, a Łódź guide. 2021 Łódź Summer Tours start every Saturdays at 12 PM at the Tourist Information Center in Łódź (Piotrkowska 28). The last walk will take place on 26th of September. What is more, during the Birthday of Łódź (July, 25th) and the Light.Move.Festival (September, 26th) extra strolls will be organized also on Sunday, and they will also start at 12 PM. During the English-spoken tour, the guides will talk about:
- the story of Poznanski’s family textile empire,
- the complicated history of the Old Town,
- street art in Łódź – murals and art installations,
- Łódź as a multi-ethnic and multi-religious city,
- the modern Łódź, symbolized by the EC1 – City of Culture complex
- Piotrkowska, the queen of Polish streets and its magical courtyards
The cost is PLN 15 per person (children under 18 are free of charge); tickets can be purchased at the Łódź Tourist Information (Piotrkowska 28) on the day of the walk or a few days before the event. 20% discount on tickets for Łódź City Card holders!!! Each participant of the walk gets a 10% discount on souvenirs at the Tourist Information shop and a 10% discount at the Imber restaurant (43 Piotrkowska Street). 2021 Łódź Summer Tours will take place on the following days:

We want every tour participant to become the ambassador of Łódź and to pass on the famous motto of Łódź from the interwar period: If you want to learn about Poland’s past – see Cracow. If you want to see its present – see Warsaw. But if you want to witness Poland’s future – you need to see Łódź!
