The Piotrkowska Street is also known as the ”Łódź Walk of Fame”.

Between Tuwima Street and Nawrot Street there is the Monument of Łódź Citizens of Millennium Change, which is a nominal surface covering the part of Piotrkowska Street. This is probably the only monument of this kind in the world, consisting of 13.454 nominal cobblestones.

  1. You have truly captured the atmosphere of that street. Fantastic images. Thanks for finding out about the names on the street. I will use Google now.

  2. Spännande och intressanta bilder från en stad som säkerligen är värt ett besök. Tycker mycket om ditt collage med dina lite speciella iakttagelser, snyggt presenterat och roligt att få ta del av.

Halva verket är läsarens - så, vad säger Du? As the second half is the reader's - I'd love to have Your line!
