Łódź has been undergoing a continuous post-industrial revolution for over a decade now, as old factory get revamped, repurposed and reopened. The latest, and one of the most impressive of these is Monopolis, opening as recently as 2020. Located on the corner of Al. Piłsudskiego and ul. Kopcińskiego, the site of the former 'Monopol Wódczany' vodka distillery, originally opened in 1902, was once the 3rd largest industrial site in Łódź. And there you go, a vodka distillery, in the heart of a textile city (it is the land of vodka, after all)! The new site covers 29,900m2 and contains a whole host of attractions for visitors, the centrepiece being the Museum of Vodka Production (of course!), but also a theatre venue in Scena Monopolis, cafes, restaurants, a play area for children, a gym and pool, and finally, office space in two new modern buildings, M1 & M2. The main draw, other than the museum, are the cultural events taking place here, from concerts to exhibitions, photo and film sessions. An impressive mix of modernity in the next phase in the lifespan of an old industrial site. The scale is impressive.
