teaching, and to scholarly and critical research.

THE CITY OF LODZ 
Lodz, whose history dates back to the 15th century, is the second
largest city in Poland, with a population of nearly one million
people. It is located 130 km (85 miles) south-west of Warsaw, almost
in the very centre of Poland. Its short yet remarkable history is
closely linked to the growth of the textile industry - even today its
most characteristic sights include late-19th-century neogothic
factories and well-preserved, magnificent villas and palaces of former
factory owners, now turned into museums or sites of various cultural
and educational institutions. Lodz is not only an important industrial
centre, but also a city of culture, often referred to as the capital
of Polish film. The most renowned Polish film directors such as
Krzysztof Kielowski, Roman Polanski and Andrzej Wajda are all
graduates of the world-famous Lodz Film School. Despite the fact that
Lodz is an industrial city, it has the largest urban green areas in
Poland, among them Lagiewniki, the biggest municipal park in Poland,
with two wooden chapels and a Baroque monastery. Since 1945 Lodz has
been an important academic centre with a number of state-run academic
institutions, among them the University of Lodz.
