Lodz to Vilnius(Part 2)
In a month I am going to travel from Lodz to Vilnius i have searched for a route in http://rozklad.pkp.pl/, but in the website they don't say the fare. I would like to ask if anybody can tell how would it cost to go from Lodz to Vilnius
RE: Lodz to Vilnius(Part 2)
There is an Intercity train going from Warsaw to Vilnius. The price is about 20 Euro (80PLN). But, unfortunatelly, it doesn't run every day. You may look at some connections at http://www.intercity.com.pl/en/main.
RE: RE: Lodz to Vilnius(Part 2)
In fact there is no train but a bus that do not run every day. In february it runs in every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It is from Warsaw of course not Lódź.
Travel Tips for Lodz
All kids, big and small, love...
All kids, big and small, love kids poems by Julian Tuwim. There is a sculpture of Julian Tuwim (Laweczka Tuwima) on Piotrkowska street. It looks like Julian Tuwim is just resting on the bench. You can join him and sit down right next to this great poet.
All Poles love poems like 'Spozniony slowik,' 'Okulary,' 'Abecadlo,' or 'Zosia samosia.'

The LODZ GHETTO - see it with your mind's eyes while walking about.
164,000 Lodz Jews were forcibly packed in the ghetto when the Germans sealed it off on April 30, 1940 and non-Jews were not permitted entry. Segregating Jews into ghettos was an intermediary stage in the Nazi programme to eliminate the Jews of Europe completely.

Lodz - the Polish Hollywood
Lodz - the Polish Hollywood (Film School & Museum of Cinematography)
Lodz is also a city of culture, and is often referred to as the capital of Polish film. The most renowned Polish film directors such as Krzysztof Kieslowski, Roman Polanski and Andrzej Wajda (see the travelogue: The Promised Land)are all graduates of the Lodz Film School. The 50-year tradition of the 'Polish Hollywood' is shown in the Museum of Cinematography housed in a beautiful, eclectic interior of the 19th century residence once belonging to a factory owner, Karol Scheibler.
The Palm House
Some of the early palms started life in the homes of rich factory owners who left the city when WW1 started. The plants were deposited within the city’s green houses. In 1925 the plants were moved to a canteen in Zrodiska Park that had been used by the unemployed. The collection grew over the next 30 years and the City decided that the canteen building should be altered to allow the public to view the plants. The present building was altered again and completed in 2003. It is divided into 3 areas with hard leaf plants, equatorial and tropical plants, and desert plants. There are also some fish and terrapins. Some of the palms are 140 years old and reach to the roof. All the plants are beautifully presented. The down side is it only took me 30 minutes to walk around and that was stretching it out plus the didactic garden was closed. Unless you are a real enthusiast it is not worth the 6 PLN to visit.
The red brick Radogoszcz Prison started life in the 1930s as a factory complex. It ended up in the hands of the German Army after the fall of Poland and became a barracks, before being turned into a transit camp. As the war went on, it gradually changed into a more sinister prison, with over 40,000 passing through it. The buildings were never constructed to act as a prison and the facilities crude and harsh. Added to this were beatings, executions and a lack of food. On the 18th January 1945 with the Soviets approaching the Nazis intended to execute the remaining 1,500 prisoners but lost their nerve when the prisoners started to fight back. The guards set fire to the prison with the prisoners still inside. Of the 1,500 prisoners who were in the prison only 30 survived. In the cemetery close by to Radogoszcz Prison is a mass grave to the victims of the fire. On the site now, there is a museum which documents the history of the prison plus the massacre at Katyn, exercise yard, watchtowers and a memorial.
