When culture vultures hear Łódź, they think film. Of course the city offers much more, but the famous film school always looms large, its alumni include Polański and Kieślowski. There is a variety of theatre: the Arlekin, the Music Theatre, Rubinstein's Philharmonic as well as the wonderful Great Theatre. Our recommendations include Fotofestiwal, Łódź Design Festival, the 4 Culture Festival (offering concerts, exhibitions and a lot more) and the Explorers' Festival (worth a look if you like adventurers and extreme sports).
