Lost for words really. Brings home the plight of Jewish communities. Huge area. Ghetto fields heartbreaking. So many untold and unknown stories. Architecturally interesting. Erie damaged and overgrown. Hard for English speakers who require informative background so do you research before you go. It will...More
Stay on No.6 tram to its terminus at Doly, walk up the road and double back on yourself down a lane. The metal entrance door is about a third of the way down. You have to pay an entrance fee (Currently 10zl per person) at...More

The entrance is a bit difficult to find, but we entered via small entrance on zmienna road and parked our bicycles there (by the way: nextbike rental is a great way to explore Lodz). Entrance is 10pln (or 8pln if you get discount). It is...More
This is reputedly the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. Amazingly given the history, it's in good condition and worth going just to see the Poznanski tomb. The best way to get there is to take a trolley bus 1 or 6 to the Doly terminus,...More
Very much the highlight of my visit of Lodz. Far better than the slick renovated factories or the touristy main strip. Do I care for bars and malls? I do not. Can I get bars and malls at home? I believe I can. It is...More
This cemetery has it all; it was created in the 19th century and has some fabulous early headstones and tombs. It also is the site of the burial of the Jewish people who died in the Jewish Getto here in Lodz. Thanks to the effort...More
This is located very close to the Radegast station. Don't go to the main gate as locked. Go to the east side of the cemetery where there is a little door halfway up where you go in. It is quite overgrown but it seems that...More
I was interested to see some of the Jewish heritage whilst in Łódź. Unfortunately the gate was closed and locked. There were some signs on it with phone numbers. Is one meant to ring them in order to get inside?
My apologies for my brief and less than helpful response for now, but I have no more time for this right now. For some reason, back spacing to delete while writing Trip Advisor reviews, causes my computer screen to freeze... More
My apologies for my brief and less than helpful response for now, but I have no more time for this right now. For some reason, back spacing to delete while writing Trip Advisor reviews, causes my computer screen to freeze. This has only ever happened when dealing with the Trip Advisor website! After losing my extended response here, I wasted more time attempting to contact Trip Advisor about this problem, but there is no allowance for such an enquiry from their "help" centre.
My short answer here, though, is that while you can indeed, just show up and self-tour, a knowledgeable, experienced tour guide will enhance your experiences exponentially. Too many elements of this exceptional place will be missed without one. For me, if you have made the effort to get this far, you should not settle for a partial, certainly incomplete experience. I do have the name of the Ph. D. student from the University of Lodz who provided the tour for my husband and me, but I am reluctant to include it here.
