  • I went with my husband and daughter. We are delighted to guide-p. Miroslaw ... unless ... (a man with mustache and characteristic Hat:) Man type of passionate about (I love such:), having a huge knowledge and able in the excellent way I pass. Even the Young without major revolts survived 2 h. In addition to the same part of the military-industrial complex, I recommend visit also to the Biebrza Park and buy łosiowe mugs (cute:) and go on Gore Strękowa (Polish Thermopylae) and, to the village of Wizna. All these spots may their stories.

  • A very interesting place. The Fort and is located on the site belonging to the army and is not always available. Fort II (Hemingway) is located in the open country and is to access it. I recommend this, though a bit interested in history.

  • 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
