- Anniversary of Cardinal Meisner
- Feb 16, 2014
Yesterday Cardinal Joachim Meisner celebrated his 80th birthday and the 25th anniversary in the ministry in the Diocese of Cologne. The ceremony took place near Krzeszów. The Cardinal is connected to Krzeszów since his childhood. He was born in Wrocław and as a child was often with his parents on pilgrimages in the Cistercian abbey. The solemn Mass was held by the Bishop of Legnica Stefan Cichy and Bishop Marek Mendyk and visited by many faithful members of the community. It was a great honor for us on this special day to hand over a miniature statue of the Madonna (built by our modellers in Kowary) by Marian Piasecki to the Cardinal. The statue of the Madonna is the central part of the facade of the church in Krzeszów and particularly fascinated the Cardinal when he visited the Miniature Park in Kowary in August.

- Miniature tourists!
- Feb 3, 2014
Visitors of our Miniature Park have the opportunity to learn about the history of our region and the architecture of the monuments. To make everything even more credible, the miniatures are decorated with small figures in the same scale. Soon our Miniature Park in Niechorze will be populated by figures in scale 1:10. In our Model Studio in Kowary different figures are build at the moment. The process is very difficult but worth the time, as you can see from the following pictures.
In our model studio we are currently working on the miniature of the famous Polish submarine ORP Orzeł. Originally almost 84 meters long, we build it in 1:10 scale - so it will have a length of 8.4 m. The Polish authorities commissioned the Dutch shipyard De Schelde with the construction. On February 10th, 1939 it was launched for the first time in Polish waters in the port of Gdynia. At the start of World War 2 it was initially involved in the defense of the coast and then interned in the capital of Estonia and partly disarmed before continuing to flee to Britain. The trip took 27 days, all without maps and navigation and was only possible due to the signals of the lighthouses. During a patrol in June 1940, the submarine disappeared without a trace and has been missing since.
The unique miniature of the submarine can be admired in our Miniature Park in Niechorze from May.

- "Miniature Madonna for the Cardinal"
- Jan 19, 2014
Last year on August 11th the Cardinal and Archbishop of Cologne - Joachim Meisner - visited our Miniature Park. He was fascinated by the facade of the Minor Basilica in Krzeszów and particularly by the statue of the Madonna. We decided to give him this part of the basilica. Recently, the bishop owns the replica of the statue of the Madonna. We hope that this unique monument will always remember him visiting our Miniature Park in Kowary.
The founder and owner of the Miniature Parks - Marian Piasecki - was nominated in the survey for Personality of the Year 2013 in Jelenia Góra. Every year this title is awarded to a person who has supported through their involvement the developement of the region. The competition runs until the end of February and we are looking forward to the result.

- Summary of 2013!
- Jan 4, 2014
Early January seems to be the right time to take a look at the past year! And one thing is certain: It was a busy year for the Miniature Park in Kowary. At the same time it was one of the most successful years, the fact that we celebrated our 10th birthday is the best proof.
The regional, national and even international media reported about our Miniature Park. Many famous people visited our Park, among others the Archbishop of Cologne - Joachim Meisner - and the third after the Dalai Lama Tibetan dignitaries - Czongtula Rinpoche.
We presented our Park on the Tourism Fair in Jelenia Góra, we were invited to the embassy in Prague and received various awards such as the Medal of Merit of Lower Silesia.
Of course we also built new miniatures. One of the biggest miniatures that you can admire in our Park in Kowary has recently become the Castle Moszna. You will be amazed by the many details. Furthermore, we presented the miniature of the Cathedral in Kamień Pomorski in our Miniature Park in Niechorze.
We wish our guests and ourselves a successful year 2014!
