Łowicz is a slightly sleepy town at river Bzura. Located at the edge of Bolimowski Landscape Park and closeness to Warsaw should make this place a popular weekend destination. But it is not. It does not mean that you will be bored there if you decide for a one day trip. It just mean that you will not meet there many tourists nor find terrific infrastructure.
