CITY HISTORY AND HIGHLIGHTS

pietrynaThe first written record of Lodzia (the original name of the city), in which the village is granted to the bishop of Wroclaw, dates back from 1332. However, a crucial moment in the history of Lodz was granting the city charter by King Wladislaw Jagiello in 1423. Originally, Lodz was an agricultural town with wooden architecture with no fortifications or town walls.
The origins of Lodz as an industrial city can be traced to the year 1820 when Rajmund Rembielinski, President of the Committee for the Mazowieckie Voivodship, was inspecting the nearby clothier workshops under construction. Lodz, with its geographical location and forests full of timber as a construction material, seemed to him as a perfect venue for establishing a clothiers' settlement. Upon the state directive of 1820, Lodz became an industrial town. The first settlement, inhabited by clothiers, was situated to the south of the old agricultural part of Lodz. It was called Nowe Miasto (New Town) – today's Plac Wolnosci.The abolition of customs duties between the Polish Kingdom and Russia in 1851 was crucial for the further development of Lodz and its industry. With free trade opportunites, the manufacturers made vast fortunes on cloth production and trade.

manu

At that time the most famous manufacturers of Lodz were Izrael Kalmanowicz Poznanski and Karol Wilhelm Scheibler. In the second half of the 19th century Lodz, producing the two thirds of the whole cotton cloth yield in the Polish Kingdom, became the real ''Promised Land''. Hence, the title of the world-famous novel of Wladyslaw Reymont, the Noble Prize winner for Literature, and its theme. The factories became huge with clothiers' houses and owners' palaces. The largest ones were Karol Scheibler's factory buildings in Ksiezy Mlyn and Israel Poznanski's in Ogrodowa Street.After 1945 Łódź was still a well-developed textile centre, however, other branches of industry were introduced in the city. Lodz also became an educational centre with the University of Łódź and the Łódź Polytechnic established in 1945.Upon the 1989 fall of Communism, Łódź was no longer a prosperous textile centre. The factories, the majority of which went bankrupt, were turned into seat for new shops, bank and other institutions. The neglected gray Piotrkowska Street was transformed into the city's most elegant street full of cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, etc. The city has been flourishing. Nowadays Lodz is a thriving industrial, economic, cultural and academic centre.
