Lodz (Polish spelling ‘Łódź’ , pronounced ‘wutz’), my current home, may not be the most pretty city but I admit that it is one of a kind. There are other cities in Poland which are far more visited and have charming old towns and castles, such as Krakow, Warsaw, Poznan, Gdansk and Wroclaw. But Lodz has its special charm. In the past, Lodz was most notable for its textile industry but now it is a well-known city in Poland for its vibrant film and art scene.
What is perhaps the most striking about Lodz are its huge wall murals in various parts of the city. I think that these murals add color to the otherwise gray city. I love how I can walk around in the city and come across new street art each time even after having lived here for over two years.
Today I am sharing some of the murals from around city center in Lodz. I am sure I haven’t seen all of them but I do plan to see all major murals in Lodz some time soon.
My Polish friends tell me that the city has been growing rapidly over the years and so seems to be the street art..
