According to ShtetlSeeker, the Lithuanian Kalvarija (Kalvariya,
Kalvariya) is 85.7 miles WSW of Vilnius.
Within present Poland, Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is 174.2 miles SSW of
Warsaw, and Kalwaria Paclawska, 195.5 miles SSE of Warsaw.
I believe the Kalvarija in Lithuania closer to today's NE Poland seems
a more likely choice for the Lomzer -> Kalvarier Rav.
Hope this helps,
