    Do you want to know something about the history of Poland? On this two-day route from Warsaw, we propose to visit the city of Lodz, but also other sites along the way, both on the way there and on the way back. Each of these sites has a connection with the country's past and its culture.
    On the first day you will visit the place where Frédéric Chopin was born and learn about his early years in the house museum prepared for this purpose. Then you will visit a palace and one of the most beautiful palace gardens in Europe and finish the day in Lodz, the third largest city in Poland.
    In Lodz you will visit several sites to learn about its past as one of the largest textile industrial centres and its present as one of the fastest growing artistic and cultural cities. In addition, you can visit the the Jewish cemetery and the area where the Lodz ghetto was located to remember the history of the Holocaust. Finally, on your return to Warsaw, you can take a walk through the open-air museum to learn about rural life in Poland and the art of paper-cutting.
    Ready for a trip?
    This route can be done all year round, but it is best to avoid the colder months because the days are shorter and everything closes earlier.
