PALACES

Herbst Palace

Herbst Palace is located at 72 Przędzalniana Street.

Originally, the palace belonged to the manufacturer Edward Herbst and Zofia Matylda Herbst – a daughter of Karol Scheibler. Then their son Leon with his wife Aleksandra lived there up to 1941, when they decided to leave for Vienna. Leon died childless before the end of the war.

The palace was built in 1875following Hilary Majewski’s project. This is a neo-renaissance villa designed on a rectangular plan, with a ballroom and stables next to it.

Nowadays it is a branch of the Museum of Art. The interiors of palaces owned by 19th and 20th century industrialists are exhibited there, and in the stables we can see examples of 19th and 20thcentury carriages. An additional attraction is the garden which is also open to visitors. Apart from the basic exhibitive activities, the Museum has implemented an educational mission for children and adults by organizing lectures, workshops and games, etc. What’s more, numerous concerts of classical and contemporary music take place at the palace.

Karol W Scheibler’s Palace

Karol W Scheibler’s Palace is situated on 1 Zwycięstwa Sq. next to Park Źródliska and Księży Młyn.

In 1856 Karol Scheibler built a modest single-storey building. Further conversion gave it a more representative character. Finally, in 1887, Edward Lilpop’s project resulted in the neo-Renaissance appearance of the palace. Theimpressive, rich interiors are decorated with numerous paintings, wood panelling, Venetian mosaics, decorative fireplaces and furniture. All the pieces were brought from various parts of Europe.

We can admire thebeautiful interior of the museum in many Polish films, for example “The Promised Land” by Andrzej Wajda. Today the palace is a museum of cinematography, whose collections tellthe story of Polish film and present the development of film technologies.

Temporary exhibitions are organized to presentthe profiles of filmmakers and photographers. Great interest has been shown in film screenings in the cinema that works at the museum. The cinema hall was arranged in the former coach house of the palace. The air-conditioned room outfitted with modern equipment can host up to 70guests.

The Jewish Cemetery

  • Located at Bracka Street and a 15-minute drive from the city centre, there is the biggest Jewish necropolis in Europe.

  • Here you can see the graves of many famous merchants, factory owners and rabbis who lived in Łódź and created the Jewish community in our city. When walking down the main avenue, look at the graves of the largest industrialists and merchants in Łódź. The most beautiful one is the family mausoleum of Izrael Kalmanowicz Poznański. You can also admire the graves of the Silberstein family, Mina and Herman Konsztadt, the Jarociński family, Barciński or Adam Osser. The white-marbled monument of Stanisław Heyman is also well worth seeing. Here you can see the tombstone of poet Julian Tuwim’s parents, the family grave of the famous pianist Artur Rubinstein or the grave of Aleksander Tansman’s father. In this cemetery you can also visit the Ghetto Field – the burial ground of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto inhabitants killed in death camps in Chełmno and Auschwitz-Birkenau. The old Jewish gravestones are decorated withreligious symbols and relieves, e.g. hands, candles, falling crowns, bookcases (the symbol of a religious person) or broken trees (the symbol of death). Here you can also admire the world’s biggest funeral house - the Purgation House. Izrael Kalmanowicz Poznański, who donated his own land (around 10.5 ha) played themost important role in the history of this place.

  • This cemetery is a major tourist attractionwhich Łódź can be proud of.

The Old Cemetery at Ogrodowa Street

The Old Cemetery at Ogrodowa Street is the oldest existing Łódź necropolis. It was the first of the cemeteries in Łódź to be shared by three Christian denominations: Catholic, Evangelical and Orthodox Church. Here you can learn more about the nationalities that created the industrial Łódź.

In a short time Łódź became a multinational and multidenominational city. In this cemetery you can admire a very interesting chapter of sepulchral art with abundant forms of gravestones and tombs. This used to be the place of burial for the members of the cultural, financial and political elite. The sacral art is beautiful, while its forms and stylesare monumental and unique. Its most valuable monuments can mark out the three parts of the Old Cemetery.

In the Catholic part there is a vault of Juliusz Heinzel’s family. The Orthodox part of the cemetery is marked by the Gojżewski family vault, which was built in a Byzantine style. But the most valuable monument – not only of the Evangelical part – is the mausoleum-vault of Karol Scheibler (one of the most interesting examples of European neo-gothic architecture).

The cemetery is a very magical and nostalgic place – fullofinteresting history and valuable art.

Księży Młyn

Księży Młyn is mainly associated with the name of Karol Wilhelm Scheibler, but its origins date back to 1387, when the first mill was built on the Jasień River. The period up to 1870 is marked by frequent changes of owners. That year Scheibler bought the burnt–out mill for 40 thousand roubles and started to build his empire in the area of 500 hectares. As a result of his efforts, an industrial and residential district was established. Karol Scheibler’s spinning mill was built between 1870 and 1873, and it was the biggest industrial building in Łódź. Scheibler, in order to stronger bind his workers with the company, built long rows of houses for a few hundred families. What is more, in 1876 he opened a school for these children whose parents worked in his factory. In fact, he managed to create an entire factory town with shops, a church, a railway station, a fire station and even a public park. After his death in 1881 the establishment didn’t stop growing. Anna Scheibler, Karol Scheibler’s wife, continued the work of her late husband. In 1884 she opened the first factory hospital in Łódź and today the building still functions as the Hospital of Dr. Karol Jonscher. The most characteristic feature of the entire complex is that it was built with natural red brick – the only exception is Herbst Palace. The unique atmosphere of Księży Młyn still attracts investors. The former mill buildings have been adapted to exclusive lofts. There are initiatives, such as the Picnic at Ksieży Młyn, which try to transform the district into an artistic commune where, alongside its oridnary residents, artists can live, perform and create. The idea is that Księży Młyn should not only be a charming film setting but also a vibrant place.

Cathedral Basilica of St. Stanisław Kostka at 265 Piotrkowska Street

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Stanisław Kostka is located at 265 Piotrkowska Street. The Cathedral is an example of the multicultural phenomenon of Łódź, where public buildings were founded by wealthy industrialists, regardless of their origins or religion.

In1895 a building committee of the richest factory-ownerswas created, including Juliusz Teodor Heinzel, Baron Hohenfels, Edward Herbst, Juliusz Kunitzer, Józef Richter and Adolf Hoffrichter.

This highest church in Łódź (a 101-metre spire) was built between 1901 and 1912, following the project of Wende & Zarske Company supported by the Berlin architect Emil Zillmann, and was patterned on the German Cathedra in Ulm. It was designed as a 3-aislechurch with a transept.

The neo-Gothic building with the severe interior was enriched with rosettes and large windows filled with stained glass.

Passing in front of the Cathedral, you can admire the monuments dedicated to the Pope JohnPaul II, the priest Ignacy Skorupka and unknown soldiers.

Evangelical-Augsburg Church of St. Matthew

German weavers and clothiers, who arrived in Łódź in the 19th century, had a big impact on the industrial development of the city. A significant trace of their activity is the Evangelical-Augsburg Church St. Matthew located on 283Piorkowska Street. It is currently the only Lutheran church in the city.

The temple was built between 1909 and 1928 according to the project of Johannes Wende. A chapel, which was funded by the von Herbsts, was built at first. Then the Berlin architect Franz Schwechten improved the project to address the need of enlarging the building. The church was built in Neo-Romanesque style. The building itself was erected on the Greek cross plan, while the 80-metretower was designed on a square plan. In the middle of the tower there are small open-work towers.

The interior is decorated with numerous sconces and chandeliers. Many elements of decoration are made of white marble. The organs that are in the churchare among the most valuable concert instruments in the city and were built by the Rieger company in 1928. Nowadays, thanks togood acoustics of the temple, numerous concerts are held there. The Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra performed in the church for many years.

Reicher’s Synagogue

Jews were the first nation to come to Łódź. Thus, manyfactory owners had Jewish roots. Their influence on the development of the city is undeniable. Therefore, it is worthwhile visiting the place which will show us their culture. Reicher’s Synagogue at 28 Rewolucji Streetis the only one that survived the war and is one of the two active Jewish temples in Łódź. The saving of the synagogueis a very interesting story.

Wolf Reicher drew up a fictional act, selling it to his German business partner. He arranged the composition of salt here and didn’t allowthe building to be demolished. After the war, Edward Reicher gave the synagogue to the Mosaic Faith Congregation.

After its renovation, it was opened again for religious purposes. Reicher’s Synagoguewas designed by Gustaw Landau-Gutenteger and erected by the foundation of theReicherfamily in the years 1895-1902. It was designed for 42 people. The prayer hall occupies the whole brick building: a men’s room with 8 windows on the ground floor was surrounded by a gallery for women with 10 windows. The walls are decorated with geometric paintings. In the centre of the main ceiling there is a gold Star of David surrounded by a laurel wreath in the blue circle.

Originally the synagoguehad stained-glass windows, but now they are glazed with transparent glass decorated with painted Stars of David. Inside the synagogue there are four plaques: the first one commemorates the founder of the synagogue,WolfReicher; the second one commemorates the fire; the founders of the synagogue’s reconstruction,the RonaldS. Lauder Foundation from New York is also depicted; and the last one commemorates the renovation of the synagogue by the Nissenbaum Family Foundation.
