We approach slowly one of the most magical time of the year. Christmas is coming soon!

Every year, many are looking for new ideas to decorate the home for Christmas. Ours is the Advent star.
For the Jelenia Góra valley, there is a very special Advent star, but to present his story, we must first go back to the year 1837.

During this time the Tyrolean came to the Giant Mountains. They were Protestants and the Emperor of Austria presented them an ultimatum: return to the Catholic Church or exile. They chose loyalty and faith, and so they were forced to abandon their beloved home. Fortunately, the King of Prussia offered to help. In the summer of 1837 the Tyrolean hiked 20 days to the Jelenia Góra Valley. Initially, they stayed in Kowary. Then they were given land within the royal palace in Mysłakowice, where they built their characteristic mountain huts. It seemed that their journey ended, but for some of them it was not the end of the hike.

Fifty years later, for a large number of Europeans, North America is the new promised land. Here immigrate Irish, Germans, Norwegian, Polish, Czech, Italians and Hungarians. And how small is the world, when the Tyrolean from our mountains meet monks from the Czech Republic in Canada.

A sign of the Protestant Order is the "Moravian Star". The star accompanies the monks on all their travels. The monks taught the immigrants how to build this beautiful star. And since then the Tyrolean houses are decorated for over a hundred years with these stars.

This particular decoration is now available for purchase in our Park Café. During the holidays we are open from 9.00 until 17.00 o'clock. Only on December 25th, the park is closed and on Christmas Eve open from 9.00 until 14.00 o'clock.
Warm welcome!
