There is so much to see and do in and around Lodz that any vacation should include car rental with Sixt to make the process of getting around this beautiful region of the country as easy as possible. Many of the buildings in Lodz date to the 19th century and feature stunning architecture, including the Manufaktura mall that lies a short drive from the center of the city. A former textile mill, the Manufaktura is filled with stunning stores, but is only a small part of the shopping experience of Lodz. Piotrkowska Street contains just over three miles of high street and luxury stores. Driving along this main Lodz artery is recommended to grasp the full scale of the shopping experience available. But, the city is about more than shopping, with memorials to those who died in the Ghetto during World War II often visited by tourists. Take the short drive out of the city center and discover the family fun of the Lunapark theme park and vast botanical gardens.
