Imagine the city in which you can see the past and the future at the same time. Imagine the city, where out of the greenery emerges perfectly preserved historic manufacturing settlement built in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Some of the walls, steeped in history, have been adapted to perform completely new functions. However, many buildings still serve their original purpose.
Without a doubt, Żyrardów is one of the most interesting places in Poland. The city has been associated with the textile industry for centuries: here was located one of the most modern manufactures of linen in the then Europe.
Nowadays, you can feel the atmosphere of the past during the visit in the still working linen factory. Żyrardów is also one of the few cities built according to the concept of the garden city – it was the idea of creating the quality of life through urban planning and urban design.
Tranquility, silence, a lot of greenery and crystal clear air will surely make you feel great. Try to find the historic villas hidden among the trees. You also should not miss at least short visit in the Museum of Eastern Masovia surrounded by the beautiful and vast Karl Dittrich Park.
