    The Orthodox Cathedral of the Diocese of łódzko-Poznań at ul. Kilińskiego 56. Passing by the mijałam group of preschoolers, which Ms. kindergarten teacher explained that "this is a church, because once the Boat lived Russians". Indeed, at the time of the partitions ok. 2% of the population of the boat were Orthodox Russians. Your "brick" in the construction of the Second Vatican Council has made Israel also Poznań-another example of a melting pot of Nations and religions.

    We passed by this cathedral when we went out of the modern train station. It is by the side of the road, and pretty from outside. We didn't go inside since it was Sunday.  more »

    The Orthodox Church is very small but very nice. From the website I read you can visit before the religious service: I went there 1 hour before the function and I found. Everyone is friendly.

    A beautiful and mystical! From the outside is impressive, but I would recommend go on devotion or just for some sightseeing. The Interior is doing even more impressive!

Where to stay in Lodz

Lodz offers fewer inexpensive hostel options than most other Polish towns, but given the city's good selection of mid-range hotels, most visitors can easily find comfortable lodgings suited to their budget and needs. The finest hotels cluster in the city center, where comfort and proximity to major attractions come at a relatively high cost. That said, many centrally located establishments offer steep discounts on weekends, when you can choose a spacious hotel room or well-appointed apartment at a fraction of the price charged during the week.
