Port Lomza

Reviewed By GlennL73 - London, United Kingdom

This is a pleasant little walk after dinner beside the river, On the way there is a bar, a play area for children, and one of the many free public access outside gyms. When we went the weather was fine and there was a para glider swooping about over the fields on the other side of the river. At the port you can hire in season kayaks, pick up the motorised Gondola, and I believe hire bikes as well. It was shut and locked though we went for our evening stroll. The Narew is quite narrow at this point, so to call this a port is quite tongue in cheek, it is like a small marina, nothing to shout about but it serves a valuable purpose for local river users. Also there are free telescopes for you to use, yes free you do not have to put any money in to use them, so you can look at the Storks in the fields, and the church in Piatnica. For me it would a pleasant place to take a stroll with family or a girlfriend, there is a car park there, but to drive there takes half the pleasure away.

Nature Museum

Reviewed By dr_agon_2 - Mikolow

Small museums of nature usually have not much to see, and we didn't expect any wonders, hoping more for some interesting relics of the family of famous Polish composer Witold Lutosławski, who lived in the house now converted to the museum.
The historical exhibition regarding the Lutosławski family was in fact only a small part of the museum, and, telling the truth, not very interesting. But to our surprise, there was very rich collection of stuffed animals and plant species composing unique ecosystem of the nearby valley of Biebrza river. Relatively large available area allowed nice arranging of exposition, which was easy to visit and pleasant looking. For us it was interesting to see the names of many plants we had seen during walks through Biebrza National Park.
There was one more amaizing exhibition - Aquariums with exotic fishes from five continents. The fishes were colorful of course, but the most interesting thing for me was that they came from the lakes and rivers, not from the sea. These were not the usual species you can see on the dive trip. Together with some fishes from local Narwia river, it was the biggest collection of fresh water fishes I had seen.
If you are near Łomża and have a spare hour or two, I highly recommend to visit this museum.
You may also find information of some temporary Exhibitions on the museum's website.
Tip: check opening hours first.
Tip2: The museum is located away from the main roads, but don't be discouraged, it is easy to find.

Kurpie Open Air Museum

Reviewed By Bernie O - Bondsville, Massachusetts

Aware of this attraction near where I was visiting. A nice representation of late 19th century Kurpie Poland. Was there just in time for a guided tour in Polish. One person in the group was bi-lingual and translated her comments to those in the group that did not understand Polish. The entrance fee when using USD as a base is very, very inexpensive.

Fortress Lomza

Reviewed By Jonathan B - Dublin, Ireland

Fortress Lomza is a collection of old fortifications that during their lifetime were used in among other events WW2. The Bunkers are very run down hover and are not maintained in any way shape or form. Covered in Graffiti with shattered glass on the ground. Some bunkers are in a better shape than others, one of the wings is privately owned and is used as a shooting range where one can fire an AK-47 rifle.

Nadnarwianski Szlak Schronow Bojowych

Reviewed By Lucjan W

Penetrowanie różnych umocnień i bunkrów to nie tylko domena miłośników militariów. Zazwyczaj bowiem są one umiejscowione w atrakcyjnych przyrodniczo i krajobrazowo miejscach. Tak też jest nad Narwią. Dlatego nawet gdyby ich nie było warto poświęcić więcej czasu na wędrówkę brzegami tej rzeki. W Nowogrodzie miejsc ze śladami schronów bojowych z 1939 roku od mostu drogowego (Łomża-Myszyniec) do Szablaka i Mątwicy jest kilkanaście. Pięć w tym kilka największych jest w dobrym stanie, a najlepiej znany i dostępny jest ten właśnie przy moście. Bardzo ładnie wkomponowany w krajobraz nadrzeczny, zadbany, z odnowionymi elementami osłon wejścia, okienek i wentylacji (których zazwyczaj w bunkrach od dawna brakuje) i tablicą pamiątkową. Szkoda tylko, że brak informacji na temat zwiedzania wnętrza-kiedyś wisiała tutaj kartka z namiarami na stowarzyszenie Klub Fort z Łomży. Na tablicy przy parkingu schemat linii obronnej i rozmieszczenie wszystkich obiektów, które warto zobaczyć.

Old Market Square

Reviewed By SuperDave47 - Brandon, Canada

Entire city has been rebuilt since WW2, and they have restored some character to the Old Market Square. Southwest corner is a gathering point for teenagers and pre-teens, especially after supper, when they congregate to study their individual cell phones.
