Allow me to introduce you to my neighbourhood, the place where I live, work and meet up with my friends.
Wherever you go in the world you can find something special, a unique history, some special atmosphere and interesting people. That’s why on the following pages of this publication, I’m inviting you to take a brief walk around a town with rich industrial and cultural traditions, a trip that is sure to arouse your curiosity.
Żychlin is located in the very centre of Poland, on the border of the Lodz and Mazovia regions. Its history dates back to more than 615 years. Currently it has a population of eight and a half thousand. Factors that significantly affected its nineteenth and twentieth century development were its geographical location, proximity to the main Moscow-Warsaw-Poznan-Berlin trade route, the establishment of two sugar plants (the nineteenth century) and founding an electrical engineering works in the early twentieth century. Today, growth opportunities may be seen in the existing industrial infrastructure, the town’s close proximity to the A-1 motorway and a rail terminal, as well as the establishment of a special economic zone.
You are all cordially invited. Let’s meet over a cup of hot coffee and a taste of the delicious chocolate that has been produced here with great passion for many years, among the friendly and hospitable local population.
Mayor of Żychlin
