History

The Manufaktura Center is a multifunctional cultural, shopping and entertainment complex located in nineteenth century factory buildings built by legendary textile mogul Izrael Poznanski.

The opening of the Center in 2006 was preceded by the largest post-industrial building project in all of Europe. The ambitious Manufaktura project set out to restore the complex to its former glory and recapture its unique atmosphere by preserving not only the historic interiors of the former Cotton Plant buildings, but also by fully restoring their characteristic brick facades.

The buildings in the complex fuse history with modernity as does Restaurant Polka by Magda Gessler. The brick walls retain the original style of the building but a prominent chandelier made ​​of saucers and cups and a beautiful poppy ceiling both reflect the contemporary character of the restaurant.
