I’m here to upload you with news. So, as you have already knew I’m invited in Łódź for few days. So, I can’t wait to visit it and see some sights there.
We’re going to take our trip in 11th of June at the same day on Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi (Boze Cialo) is a Catholic feast celebrated as a public holiday in Poland. They celebrate it in 11th of June and It’s a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.. It is the day when the Catholic Church commemorates the practice of Holy Eucharist, or Communion.
I’ve searched about this day and I’m sharing some details with you.
Large groups of people take part in outdoor processions in many villages, towns and cities in Poland. The processions include children dressed in white who scatter flower petals on the streets. Some of the procession’s participants stop to pray at temporary shrines. Many homes are decorated with religious icons during Corpus Christi.
Now, about Łódź.
Łódź is the third-largest city in Poland and a former industrial centre. Located in the central part of the country, it has a population of 682,679 (2019).
The city has experience as a host for international sporting events such as the 2009 EuroBasket, and it will be one of the six host cities of the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, with the opening and final to take place at Stadion Widzewa. Łódź will also host the sixth edition of the European Universities Games in 2022.
In the end, I just wanna ask you. Have you ever been to Łódź? Which sights are you recommend to see? Please, let me know.
And, of course huge thanks to Justina for this opportunity.
