The City of Lodz is the third largest city in Poland, with nearly 800,000 people. Krakow is second largest and the largest is the capital city Warsaw. During the last days of World War II, the government of the Republic of Poland moved to Lodz -- since Warsaw had been destroyed by the Germans.
Lodz is the home of the University of Lodz, with over 40,000 students and programs that serve international students and international companies. For more information on Lodz, go to InvestinLodz.com.
The name "Lodz" means "boat" in Polish and is pronounced "woodge". There are grand plans to transform the city center or "centrum" into a modern arts and business center, with trains, to or from Warsaw's Centralna station in less than half an hour, that pass through underground. The historic features of Lodz will be preserved, but the city will become a reflection of the attitude of the people of Lodz as a 21st Century city, known for its quality of life as well as a manufacturing and business center. A new international airport will be built halfway between Lodz and Warsaw.
