It was listed in the "championing sustainability" category.

In its profile of the city, National Geographic editor Martyna Szczepanik, wrote: “Named a UNESCO City of Film in 2017 for its rich cinematic culture, Łódź, a city of nearly 700,000, was a major textile manufacturing center in the 19th and 20th centuries.

"Now Poland’s Hollywood is flipping the script on its industrial past to create a greener future.

"In recent years Łódź has embraced new ecological technologies, such as using pre-RDF (refuse-derived fuel) and biomass energy to heat homes.

In 2021, the city partnered with the European e-commerce delivery platform InPost to significantly reduce CO₂ emissions and traffic in the town’s center by installing 70 parcel locker locations and electric car charging stations.”

The National Geographic adds: “Nearly a third of Łódź is green space, ranging from new pocket parks to the 2,977-acre Łagiewnicki Forest. In the city’s old industrial areas, factories are being reborn as parks, cultural centers, residences, and retail spaces. The trendiest spot on the cultural map is OFF Piotrkowska, a buzzing art, design, dining, and club district housed in a former cotton mill. 

The other categories in the "most exciting destinations" survey are nature, adventure, culture and history, and family.

Five destinations have been picked in each category.
