Welcome to the exciting world of Łódź (pr. Woodge) In Your Pocket. The summer is ending and autumn/winter approaches, but Łódź is a vivid place and remains as colourful as ever, and no more so is this proven than during the Light Move Festival (p.15), when the city is lit up with all colours of the rainbow. It’s great for all to enjoy, especially the kids, walking around, looking up at the various architectural wonders the city has to offer, dazzling in colour and light shows, looking like a giant kaleidoscope image! Speaking of younglings, check out our feature on p.6, ‘Łódź with the Kids’ where we show you that just because the big ball in the sky is a less frequent visitor to the city this time of year, it doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to see and do in Łódź to keep both youngsters and adults entertained! There is always plenty going on in Łódź, like the Soundedit Festival (p.15), and we highly recommend you check out our What’s On section (p.14) for full details of cultural events and festivals. As always, let us know how you got on in Łódź on our Facebook page and/or show us what you’ve seen during your time in the city by using the hashtag #lodzinyourpocket through Instagram, or if you prefer, just use good old-fashioned email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summer is gradually coming to an end, but it doesn’t mean Łódź gets any less colourful, as the Light Move Festival in September proves – our cover shows ul. Piotrkowska dazzling during the festival. Photo ©ourtesy of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland (Flickr).
Most trips abroad are usually exciting times, and they should be, but if you have youngsters with you, it can sometimes be challenging to keep them entertained and prevent the dreaded stroppy behaviour! We feel your pain, but we can also soothe that pain, nay, even prevent it from becoming an issue! Read on to find out what Łódź has to offer you and the kids.
