  • We wanted to visit the fortress in July 2016 because of recommendations by family and locals. “Unfortunately“ we are living in Germany with a german passport and we were rejected to enter. It's only f...  more »
  • Not only for lovers of military. For anyone who is interested in a little history. The same complex of huge but seeing only a small part, located on the territory of a military unit. Hence the need to have an identity document by persons of legal age. On the spot are waiting guides, collector group. Then about two-hour tour. Necessarily comfortable shoes, and for minor heat clothing. Guides to enthusiasts, so they tell interesting, add a variety of trivia. Really worth it!

  • As the topic! The fortress as fortress, a huge military complex. Myself zgubilibysmy here 100 times and nothing did. But with such a guide which is the major Worona-strachy na lachy! After the visit, nothing will be alien to us, we will find out lots of interesting facts about the same fortress, the military and in General from the world. All ingredients with wonderful humor and wit. How beautiful it is only with him. Incredible, chartyzmatyczna character.

  • 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. Przemek & Ania, July 2016
  • 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
  • Not only for lovers of military. Also for those, who, although a bit interested in history. With the massive area provides a small part, on the territory of a military unit. Hence the need to have an identity document by persons of legal age. Guides to enthusiasts, who Interestingly tell stories and share different dykteryjkami. Tour lasts ok. 2 hours and you have comfortable shoes and also for pozaletniej warm clothing. To see and listen to.

  • A nice two-hour guided tour. You have to remember to bring your Passport, otherwise not allowed, it's at the end of the active area of a military unit. Recommend.
