Łódź Services Directory


Our services directory lists everything possible that we think could be of use and which doesn't fit nicely elsewhere. Use the listings here when things go wrong and you need to find a doctor or embassy, or when you've become so smitten with Łódź that you've decided to relocate here permanently. Whether a traveller or expat, we hope you'll find these listings helpful.

Currency Exchange

Currency exchange offices ('Kantor') are easy to find in Łódź, but as with any international destination, it's imperative to check the rates to ensure you aren't getting fleeced. The general rule is you should never change your money at city entry points, particularly at the airport where the rates are almost criminal. To help put your mind and your wallet at ease, we've assembled a list of well-located exchange offices that won't rip you off, and don't take a commission.


Emergency Services

If you're ever in need of urgent assistance remember it's always best to call 112. Here you will find a list of City Guard and Police stations around the city, should you need to find one nearest to you ASAP.

Health & Emergency

In the case of an emergency, mobile phone users should dial 112 to be forwarded to the police, fire department or ER. From a landline or public phone dial the following: Ambulance: 999; Fire: 998; Police: 997. English, German and Russian speakers have separate lines specifically designed for foreigners in distress: +48 608 599 999 (mobile) or +48 22 278 77 77 (landline).

For urgent medical emergencies, use the listings below. The emergency room in PL is called SOR and should only be visited when absolutely necessary. In less urgent crises we recommend you visit a private clinic, where you'll get better service and avoid the notoriously long queues in Polish hospitals.

International Schools

Internet Cafes

Internet access is typically free and widely available in Poland, with practically every café and restaurant offering wi-fi to customers with laptops and smartphones. Getting on the network often requires nothing more than a password, which you can request of your favourite bartender or barista with a simple, “Poproszę o hasło do internetu?” If you don't have your own gadgets we offer a few Internet cafe options below.
