Łomianki [wɔˈmʲaŋkʲi] is a town in Warsaw West County, Masovian Voivodeship, Poland,[1] with 16,374 inhabitants (2008).[2]

Because the town is located between Kampinos National Park and Vistula river, and just a short distance from the outskirts of Warsaw, it is regarded as a desirable place to live for people who want to combine an out-door lifestyle while still communting each day to Warsaw. Kampinos National Park has hundreds of kilometers of cycling trails and the largest inland sand dunes in Europe - elk and wild boar after often to be seen there. Lomianki is characterised by big residential houses, particularly around Ulica Zachodnia and many active community groups. There are many expats living in Lomianki, mostly because it is equidistant between the city's two international airports - Chopin and Modlin.

Of interest in Łomianki is the Jazz Cafe where live music from all over Poland and beyond is a regular feature, Manufaktura Czekolady which is the only place in Poland where chocolate is made from bean to bar, and the Lemon Tree Pub where most community events are hosted. There are two Italian restaurants both run by Italians, as well as a gourmet burger bar, sushi and the new American bar - Jacks.
