- Bad Muskau! Here we go!
- Mar 4, 2015
On Monday, 02/03/2015 a festive reception took place to showcase our latest miniature: The castle in Bad Muskau.
On this occasion, we welcomed among others:
The Mayor of Bad Muskau, Andreas Bänder,
the Mayor of Kowary, Bożena Wiśniewska,
and the District Administrator of Görlitz, Bernd Lange.
Andreas Bänder and Bożena Wiśniewska cut the opening ribbon in front of the Palace together and thus the first season of the Miniature Bad Muskau began in the Miniature Park of the Lower Silesian Monuments. The ceremony was presented by Marian Piasecki (owner of the Miniature Park). The premiere of the model was also a good opportunity to talk about the goal to promote the region of the Lusatian Neisse.
On the pictures below, we document the events and present some snapshots from the eight months in which the miniature was created. Now you can enjoy our newest jewel daily in the Miniature Park in Kowary!

The Park is open for our guests seven days a week throughout the year. For this reason, the weather is our business partner. On sunny, warm days, our Park is a paradise on earth. On days when it rains or snows, our hall provides protection and spreads the flavors and scents of our Coffee Shop and the soothing warmth of the fireplace. That is why we have put together a gallery with photos of our Park from the four seasons. We hope you like it!

Necessity is the mother of invention! At the heart of every army of medieval Europe were heavily armored knights. Helmets that covered their faces, made the identification on the battlefield impossible. It was necessary to develop a method to distinguish enemies of friends. The perfect solution turned out to be painting coat of arms on capes or shields. As a result, families and subsequent generations were easy to identify. The various coats of arms are well documented and in addition to the historical sources, recognizable by the facade of castles. Also in our Park, in scale 1:25!
- Winter is back!
- Jan 24, 2015
Winter attracts attention by covering the Giant Mountains with a fresh layer of white fluff! The miniatures have now snowed roofs and look even more similar to the originals. Our models are made of plastic and therefore waterproof. Frost is also not a problem. All guests who have skied enough and want a little culture should visit us.
Welcome to the Miniature Park of the Lower Silesian Monuments daily from 09.00 until 17.00 o'clock!

The term perspective is used primarily in painting and photography. But also very well known is the phrase: "look at things from a different perspective." Everything viewed from two different perspectives, results in two different images. This principle is the foundation of the Miniature Park. By looking at our models you can discover the monuments, you already know, in a new perspective. And for those who first become acquainted with the monuments through our Miniatures, should also consider to visit the "originals". Therefore, we have decided to not demand additional money for taking photos in the Park. We believe that taking pictures is a fundamental freedom.
We are open daily from 09.00 am until 5.00 pm!

Ski lovers will be happy. Finally we have real winter! More beautiful than you could have imagined when you think of the warm December.

Our Park and the miniatures look simply fantastic with their snow dress.

Twelve is a number with different meanings.
For the ancients it was a symbol of perfection and completeness. Hercules had to perform twelve tasks for his crimes . The first codification of the Roman law are the "Twelve Tables". We have twelve gods in Olympus, twelve tribes in Israel and twelve apostles. The European Flag shows 12 stars, despite the 28 Member States. To date, 12 people were on the moon. The sun reaches within 12 hours the highest point in the sky and reappears 12 hours later.
