For much of the year Łowicz (wo-veech) is close to slipping into a permanent coma, but when Corpus Christi (Boże Ciało) comes around, it's the place to be. The flamboyant procession through town is one of Poland's grandest and oldest celebrations.
Łowicz boasts a long and important connection to the Catholic Church – for over 600 years it was the seat of the archbishops of Gniezno, the supreme Church authority in Poland. A stroll around the centre can take a pleasant hour, more if the cathedral is open, making Łowicz a pleasant pit stop in conjunction to visits to Arkadia and Nieborów. Look for plaques on buildings detailing their history.
