- Czech and Polish souvenirs
- Apr 15, 2014
In addition to memories and images of the Miniature Park there are various other souvenirs in our shop. You will often encounter here a Dachshund: Cast in plush, made of wood or bronze, he recalls the story of the dachshund Lumpi. Great interest also arouses our Original Bolesławiec porcelain with its characteristic decorations. Not to forget the unique line products of Mysłakowice. The youngest tourists are always fascinated by the famous Czech wooden toys "The Little Mole".
If you are interested in our region we recommend a look at our literature corner of Lower Silesia. There you will find, among others a wide range of maps of the area. Also recommended is our Park Guide, with many photos of the Miniatures and the Originals as well as brief descriptions. With the help of the Park Guide you can easily go on a roadtrip and visit the originals.

- Barrel organ!
- Apr 4, 2014
Since a couple of days a barrel organ plays for our visitors familiar melodies. You can expect a short concert at the Miniature of the old building on the Śnieżka mountain before 1968. In this way, we create the feeling of the 19th century. At the foot of the Śnieżka Mountain festivals were held at that time where hikers could enjoy local dishes and draft beer. Often the hikers were welcomed by barrel organ melodies. As precisely as our Miniatures were built, the barrel organ plays the tunes of that time. See for yourself when you visit our Park, open daily between 9-18 o'clock!

We would like to remind you that the winter time (Daylight saving time) will soon end! On March 30th the clocks will be adjusted forward one hour from 2 am to 3 am, so we have one hour less sleep.

First, we have to set all the clocks on the miniatures to summer time ;-)

- ITB Berlin 2014
- Mar 15, 2014
This year's tourism fair ITB Berlin is officially over. It took place from March 5th until March 9th. Around 10,147 exhibitors from over 180 countries from around the world were represented. As every year held in the German capital the exhibitors presented their countries and tourism products to the visitors. The ITB is the largest event of its kind in the world. The largest and most diverse presentation of all Polish regions had this year the Opole region. It was organized by the tourist office of the Opole region and the exhibition area was 45m2. Quickly it turned out that the highlight of the presentation was our latest Miniature, the Moszna Castle. Built in scale 1:25 the model is stunning 5 x 3.5 meters in size and evolved as an audience magnet at this year's ITB. The mere participation in such an important event like the ITB was a great success for us and the huge interest in our Miniature exceeded our wildest expectations.
Although the winter is not officially over the thermometer shows already temperatures above 10 degrees. Enjoy this spring-like weather during a walk through our Miniature Park. In just one hour you will visit 44 monuments of Lower Silesia and the surrounding all presented in a unique beautiful Park.
In our gift shop you might find a nice souvenir for an unforgettable day. We cordially invite you!
