While Poland is now a member of the EU, on the whole prices are still generally quite a bit lower than in other European countries, especially for items such as clothing and electronics. In Lodz’s centre, you will find many shops along the main, pedestrianised street of Piotrkowska, though the best place to go for shopping under one roof is Manufaktura, a brand new shopping centre in an old textile factory at ul. Karskiego 5. Here you can find many clothing outlets, specialty shops and restaurants. Another good bet for shopping is the Pasaz Lodzki, a bazaar featuring a variety of shops selling lots of inexpensive items, or the Galeria Lodzka on al. Pilsudskiego. Lodz is also an excellent place to pick up any number of Polish handicrafts for which the country is famous, especially amber and silver items. Visit any of the “Cepelia” shops all over town (for example on ul. Piotrkowska), which sell many handmade items from regions all over Poland. Poland is also of course well known for its vodka – Wyborowka is the most popular – and bottles can often be purchased more cheaply at liquor shops in town than at the airport duty free.
