Good for grabbing a drink or food, very relaxing and a must see.

Beautiful history behind it, and a huge shopping centre. In summer time there are plenty of activities and gigs and festivals going on!! Do not miss if you go there in summer... read more

Everything you need near hotel. Nice restaurants and terraces. Very clean and modern feel. Only thing is that it seems little artificial but still locals seem to like it also. Many local families also enjoyed surroundings.

When you get to Lodz, you'll notice the factories. There are factories everywhere. Some are derelict, but others have been converted. A good example of turning something old into something new can be seen at Manufaktura. An old factory complex was renovated, turning old red brick buildings in lovely restaurants, a hotel, among other attractions. There's a tram circuit and... More

The total area of the complex is 27 hectares (67 acres). The work involved the renovation of an old factory building. This enormous complex includes a museum for... More

Manufaktura has a really nice atmosphere, especially the outside area is nice. Many things are being organised for children, (sport) demonstartions given, etc.. Here are also most restaurants located, most with a nice (heated) terracce. There are many different kitchen represented and have to say some of the restaurants are really nice and supplying good food. Inside at the first... More

The Manufaktura mall is hosted in a former industrial building and has a wide selection of shops and restaurant. Nothing exceptional compared to other malls all over the world, but as far as I could see the only remarkable attraction in Lodz.

First time I visited Manufaktura, I was really impressed, how Ponanski's factory was changed to what it is today. Most of all how the buildings were restored - it is really a nice complex - and so huge!! And I have been in Manufaktura all 5 times I have visited LODZ so far. A big shopping center with hotel, museums,... More

It used to be the area where a textile magnate had his factories. The space is occupies is enormous. Today, it houses a shopping mall, hotel, art centers, and so much more. The concept of the original owner resonates in present-day Manufaktura which is keeping everything in one place. It's a wholesome place to take even young children. It's a... More

Poznanski would be jolly happy to see how his factory has been "done up". This attraction is a must for visitors to Lodz. It is very pretty with fountains, a large square which often has exhibitions and events in the summer and many various restaurants. My favourite restaurants are Pepe Verde, Sphinx and Ganesh. There is also a very nice... More
