Lodz Poland Shopping
Some of Poland's biggest brands are keeping their doors shut and urging shopping centre owners to cut rents, according to a new study. Poland's largest shopping centres, Krakow and Wroclaw, have announced that they will not reopen in the coming months, citing a lack of demand for their products.
Half of the new supply will be in Poland's largest cities, including Warsaw, where the number of new retail outlets has increased sharply in recent years, according to the study. However, after the closure of the Krakow shopping centre last year, deliveries will be withdrawn from the 50,000 square metres, which will soon be rededicated as a separate retail warehouse.
The city does not have the conventional old town as it is often found in Poland, but that is a good thing. There is no almost obligatory picturesque square on the outskirts of Krakow, in the centre of Krakow or even in a small part of it.
If you are looking for a place off the beaten track, Lodz may not be the place to visit in Poland. Europe's real magic lies on the road between the cities of Brno, Mariehavn and Turku.
If you have ever been to Poland and want to explore the country beyond the usual Warsaw basics, a visit to Lodz is a great addition to your trip. They will definitely leave a good impression and a better understanding of Poland. With a train journey of just 1 hour and 20 minutes and a journey time of less than 2 hours and 30 minutes from Warsaw to Warsaw, it is the best choice if you want to reach the Polish capital.
One of the great things about visiting Lodz is that you don't have to make a day trip to Warsaw, as you can easily do so in a few hours or less.
There are buses that run from OKbus to Warsaw, Chopin and Okecie, and there are also routes that can be visited via Warsaw and Poznan. Lodz is also able to connect with other major Polish cities via the Krakow-Warsaw expressway and the Wroclaw-Lodze-Wielkopolska line. There are also a number of bus lines from Warsaw to other cities in Poland, such as Warsaw - Gdynia, Wladyslawowiec, Kowalczyca, Warsaw or Wroczyn.
Since Lodz has museums spread throughout the city, it is always better to use public transport. Contrary to the fears of the new arrivals, the crime rate is relatively low: in 2008, only 39 crimes were reported per 1000 inhabitants in this city, and it has been the most deprived urban area in Poland since the end of the Second World War. The government, and in particular NGOs, deal with such issues, and the Polish Government and local authorities deal with issues of crime prevention and combating. Besides its rich cultural heritage, Lodz has developed well in the fields of tourism, education, art and culture, but it also has some problems of its own, such as poverty and lack of education.
Vacancy rates in shopping centres average 3.9%, and Warsaw remains at the top of the list in terms of vacancy rates per 1000 inhabitants per year, with an average of 2.5%.
In addition to the shopping centre, Manufaktura has a number of restaurants, shops, cafés, restaurants and other retail outlets. The shops present a wide range of handicrafts and similar items that are not found anywhere else.
Although this is the first time I have been confronted with such things in Poznan, it seems to be a particular obsession in central Poland. At its peak, Lodz was sometimes referred to as the Manchester of Poland and was the main centre of textile production. Unlike most other major Polish cities with a long history, Lodz has developed into an important industrial and commercial centre, creating Poland's largest city with a population of more than 1.5 million people, and home to many of the country's most important industries, such as steel, iron, copper and steel mills.
The first canal in Poland to be opened to visitors is a way - a groundbreaking museum project in the city centre. There are plans to turn it into a museum, with a special focus on the history of the canal system in Lodz and its role in industrial development.
The total retail inventory in Poland in this format reached 15 million m ² in 2015, with the new offer reaching 406,000 m ². Entertainment (R & B) surpassed the expanded shopping centre in terms of retail space in the first half of 2016. According to the average monthly sales area of shopping centres, the total number of square metres of sales space in the centre of Lodz improved by 4% to PLN 882 in 2016. The largest retail centre of its kind in Poland, the Krakow city centre, covers an area of 228,000 m2.
