Wooden Architecture in Łódź, Poland


Open-air Museum of the Łódź Wooden Architecture is located on the main artery of Łódź – Piotrkowska Street (Poland). The collection includes 8 objects typical of architecture in Łódź from the turn of the 19th-20th century. These specimens include the old architecture of the city: church, summer villa, one-storey house for workers, wooden tram-stop and 4 craftsmen houses. You can see here presentation of a weaver workshop and active craftsman workshops (ceramic, paper etc.). The buildings were arranged along two streets covered with “cats’ heads” surface opening to the church cube. Styled elements of small architecture were cared for – lamps, well, signs with street names, etc. 


The most most interesting object is summer villa, provided with a angular towers, cubes of verandas as well as the rest of the cubic corpse are made of glass. The picturesque villa retained the affluent architectonic detail. There is a sculpture of the Three Bears in front of the villa. Cuba, Misia and Bartek are the heroes of the animated series "The Three Bears" were produced in Lodz (Se-ma-for - movie studio). The sculpture is part of the "Fairytale Lodz" tourist trail  (Source: Central Museum of Textiles).

  12. Piękne - i dom i zdjęcia (aczkolwiek na tym pierwszym mam wrażenie, że się ten budynek odrobinę dusi w kadrze ;))
    Czy to było jakoś niedawno remontowane? Sprawia wrażenie znakomicie utrzymanego.
