This is industrial tourism at
its best, allowing visitors to Łódź to penetrate the earths core and visit the
sewers that lie below.
The entrance to the sewer
Designed by William Heerlein Lindley, and put into action
by Stefan Skrzywin, this red brick subterranean reservoir was originally opened
in 1926, serving the original purpose to clean and purify the sewage produced
by the natives. Running a length of 142 metres, and holding a capacity of
300,000 litres of water, it was finally shut down in the 1970s and allowed to
gather rats and damp in equal measure.
Reopened on May 28, 2008 the Dętka has
now been fully restored, with your guided tour taking you past a catalogue of
photographs and documents put together by Robert Kuśmirowski. Claustrophobics
and other assorted weaklings should note the tunnel is 1.5 metres wide and 1.87
metres in height.
