These amazing Lodzians

The Gallery of Great Lodzians (People of Lodz) consists of six monuments integrated into the fabric of the city centre, depicting people or events important for the history of Lodz. All of them are located on the most famous street in the city - Piotrkowska Street. We encourage you to look for Tuwim's Bench, Rubinstein's Piano, Reymont's Trunk, Manufacturers' Table, Jaracz's Armchair and Lamplighter's Monument during your next walk. Tuwim's Bench commemorates the famous poet Julian Tuwim, and as you pass the sculpture it's worth remembering a local legend: rubbing the poet's nose brings good luck, including the prose of life, so it's probably a worthwhile experience. Rubinstein's Piano invites you to sit next to the brilliant pianist Arthur Rubinstein, Reymont's Chest offers the dignified company of the Nobel Prize-winning writer Wladyslaw Reymont, while Jaracz's Armchair invites you to take a moment to relax with Stefan Jaracz - a prominent actor and director. When visiting the Manufacturers' Table we can get to know the profiles of the creators of Industrial Lodz - Karol Scheibler, Izrael Poznanski and Henryk Grohman. The last monument - the Lamplighter Monument - reminds us about the electrification of Lodz.
