APT: Lodz, Poland

A bright, quiet, fully furnished apartment available in Lodz, Poland for scholars coming to work/research in the city. The apartment is in the city centre, close to all the archives, the universities, the ghetto area and within walking distance to the synagogue. It is a high-ceiling apartment in a historical building in which one can still find newspapers in Yiddish (originally used to smooth the walls) under layers of paint. The apartment is also very close to a farmer's market and well connected to both train stations and to the airport.
