Piotrkowska Street is the main thoroughfare of the city of Lodz and is a major commercial shopping area. Lodz itself is the third largest city in Poland and yet is often overlooked by tourists. Located almost directly in the center of the country, this city has an extensive history. Piotrkowska is one of the premiere attractions, but be sure to also check out Freedom Square and Poznański's Palace.

At 4.9 km long, Piotrkowska street is the longest shopping street in Europe, though to be honest, the most interesting parts are the section north of Piłsudskiego leading up to Plac Wolności. The activity on Piotrkowska street has dies down over the past decade since shopping malls havce drawn crowds away, but it is still a very pleasant walk down very smooth, newly re-surfaced paving with great shopping options from traditional Polish-style souvernir shops to big brand reduced-price outlets, to very good art shops (worth a visit just to look around), and in the summer, the street is lined on both sides with pop-up beer patios for a relaxing drink. The one-time visitor will be surprised to see that the brass statues dotted around along the street all have shiny polished noses: local tradition has it that if you rub the nose of one of the statues you will one day return to Łódź.
