Piotrkowska Street in the centre of Lodz extends almost five straight kilometres and is Europe’s longest “pedestrianised” street. It is pleasant to stroll along - and even more pleasant to ride in one of the many year-round rickshaws that cost just 5 zloty per person (whether for a short distance or from end to end) and which leave you hands-free...

A long pedestrian friendly main street through the heart of Lodz. Restaurants, bars, clubs, coffee shops, etc... Very safe, many people live in buildings you walk past so dog walkers and relaxed residents are in the streets. Al Fresco dining at most locations in warm months. Poland's strong English speaking population make exploring the area easy and enjoyable. I recommend... More

A walk along the fascinating and historically important Piotrkowska Street was certainly a high point of my stay in Lodz. Very little along this street is not photo worthy.....aside from the construction. The walk I took after a late lunch at Anatewka in Manufactura gave me opportunity to walk off the indulgences of lunch in a memorable setting. I was... More

This is the main street - all the shops, cafes bars and restaurants. Nice to wander down and have a beer or pizza on the pavement.

It was my first time visiting family in Lodz and they took me to Piotrkowska Street in the late evening. I loved the lively, party-like atmosphere walking down the street. It's the longest street in Europe, full of cafes, bars and restaurants. There are lots of street performers, there was even a free rap concert going on when I visited... More

Piotrkowska is, for the most part, a walking street. Bicycles are welcome and the 1900 century buildings are great to look at. Some are in need of TLC, but all in all you have shopping, restaurants, bars, pubs, all with outside dinning May thru mid-September. The street and the sidewalks have been repathed and make it much friendlier to walking.... More
