Just below the Plac Wolnosci (Freedom Square) in Lodz you can find the nominated for the "7 Wonders of Lodz" award the Museum of the "Detka" Sewer.
It is an oval reservoir, built in 1926, which collects the water and was used for periodic cleaning canals in the center of the city.
Today it operates as a museum. An underground corridor, made of red brick is more than 142 m long, 178 high and about 1.5 meters wide. Here you can see an exhibition of documents, old photos showing the formation of Lodz sewerage and water supply, as well as a variety of interesting items such as those lost, or deliberately thrown by the passers-by to the wells, which later have been found.
Walking takes place every half hour, accompanied by the guide.
