How to get here from Łódź Widzew Station?
Firstly, a brief introduction for our guests travelling by train. While browsing the booking systems of the railway carriers (and, for instance, commercial smartphone apps), finding a connection with "Łódź" itself is not sufficient. Many trains reach and stop only at Łódź Kaliska or the Łódź Widzew station. If you type only one of them into the browser, you will get a very limited number of available connections. One can be a little concerned about the need to change trains, which is quite unnecessary. Our advice is to browse at least two railway station destinations at a time: Łódź Kaliska and Łódź Widzew.
On each tram (in the first carriage) and bus of the MPK Łódź Sp. z o.o. (City Transport Company) there is a ticket machine which accepts payments by credit/debit cards only. The machines do not accept cash. Tourists who are staying in Łódź for longer should use 24-hour tickets instead, because their cost is under four normal ticket fares. Agglomeration tickets are only needed if you are planning to go outside the administrative borders of Łódź. The comprehensive offer of public transport tickets, including group tickets, is available on MPK's website.
Łódź Widzew – that is our local "eastern railway station". For some time it has been used as the main railway station for the entire city. There is a bus stop right next to the station; take bus no. 85 or 85A. After 15 minutes (the time needed to pass 10 stops), get off at the "Kopcińskiego – Tuwima" stop. Here, while descending the overpass to the street below you have to decide whether you want to walk or go by public transport. If you decide to walk, it will take you about 10 minutes. You can also use buses nos. 74, 74A, 74B, 80 and 83. When returning you will be forced to take a walk because Tuwima St. is a one-way street.
If you did not buy a 24-hour ticket, you need to validate a standard one, i.e. a 20-minute fare ticket (if you decide to walk the 1 km) or a 40-minute one (including two additional stops).
