  • An interesting property. The fortress which basically fulfilled its task. At the moment it is being restored by a group of hooked enthusiasts. The area is a giant which forces a selective way. Unfortunately, this makes the man very overwhelmed by the whole thing. Sightseeing is watching a series of sites with stories. Curious but mostly for those interested in the topic. Important! Do not forget to ID card because it is located on the premises of military unit and without documents do not enter.

  • Due to the fact that it is in the military, the fortress is available only with a guide. Usually waiting on the group in the corner in front of the entrance to the unit. Sympathetic Guide, presents the history of space in a way that is unique and fun, for each has in store a joke. The route takes about 2 h. I recommend!

  • Visiting Fort Central Fortress Osowiec was definitely a good idea. The same Interior may not be the most spectacular, but a great feed guide in an accessible way a ton of interesting information makes it an interesting experience also for people less interested in the subject. The whole trip takes 2 h wheel and runs smoothly even if the group is large. Take full boots and a flashlight. The only "downside" was a small museum containing although many interesting exhibits, but zapyziałe and "old Museum" to a fault,

  • Mirek Worona - amazing, young at heart man, whose passion and commitment ignited a flame, which saved this incredible place for future generations, was our guide during the trip. Vast knowledge, complimented by a rare skill of relaying a chunk of it to us, tourists, with ease, is a treasure trove of history, that thanks to him and people he inspired, will not be forgotten. If you are within driving distance of Osowiec during summer months do take the trip and be amazed by the imposing structure itself and meticulously restored artifacts at the museum. Thousands of lives perished here, but the fortress itself survived, despite tons of pyroxylin being detonated inside its chambers - a testament to its construction. There is a donations box at the museum, so please give generously, as this is purely a non-profit organization. Hopefully, the surrounding structures, including the Zarzeczny Fort will become available to tourists as well one day, along with expanded services catering for visitors from abroad. It is partially a military area, so access is restricted, but hopefully, full potential of this place will become apparent to the local Government soon as well and fully realized therafter.

  • Very knowledgeable local guide gave us a private tour here. Worth it if you've never visited a 19th century fortress in Poland.
  • Nice place in a nice area
  • Royal fortress. Very interesting due to its strategic location. She was also of the utmost importance for Polish after independence. Here were trained soldiers for Border Defence Corps. Now available for tourists to visit. It is a pity that limited the tour some weekends.

  • For me, a bomb, especially that we were visiting quite a small group. Remember, that is military, so no document or if your next period didn't come into play and this is not a wine Guide. I see the comments that some masters have forgotten about it.
