Łódzkie Pro Filmmakes
The Łódzkie Region is located in central Poland. Extensive plains which in the south of the region change into hilly upland areas are the characteristic feature of the land in this part of the country. Such topography makes the landscape dominated by agricultural areas, partly crossed by forests (including nature reserves or landscape parks). Despite dominant agricultural profile of the region, more than 64% of 2.5 million residents of the region live in towns of which the capital of the region - Łódź is the largest (currently approx. 700 000 citizens). It originated as a modern centre as a result of dynamic development of industry in the 19th century. Other significant cities of the region: Piotrków Trybunalski, Pabianice, Sieradz and Bełchatów.
In the Łódzkie Region there are three large rivers: Warta, Pilica and Bzura. Their basins are one of the most valuable in terms of landscape nooks of the region. Among other values of the Łódzkie Region it is worth mentioning numerous remnants of properties of the nobility and unique wooden architecture as well as heritage of the development of the 19th- and 20th-century industry. An open-cast mine of brown coal in the vicinity of Bełchatów is a unique structure.
The Łódzkie Region is characterised by excellent accessibility. In the neighbourhood of Łódź two most important roads in Poland intersect: A1 motorway (partly under construction) running towards north and south as well as A2 motorway which runs from east to west. Thanks to the latter travel to the capital of the country, Warszawa, takes approx. 1.5 hour and to Berlin less than 5 hours. Not much longer it takes to get to Warszawa by train. In addition, Łódź has an airport named after Władysław Reymont which offers connections to large hubs in Munich and Amsterdam as well as direct flights e.g. to Dublin, London (Stansted) and Oslo (Rygge). Currently infrastructural investments are pending. Their result is to be even better communication of the region with the rest of the country and Europe.
