This week we launched our online shop. Now you can easily order items from our gift shop.
In our Miniature Park you will not find the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty because Lower Silesia is famous for its monuments. Therefore you will find Miniatures of these unique architectural monuments in our Park.
And for this reason, most of the products offered in our shop are linen and porcelain: This is what Lower Silesia is famous in Europe. We are proud to offer these high-quality products in our online shop.

The magic of modeling relies heavily on bringing to mind a duel vision. The task of each model is to convince the brain that it looks at a familiar object, although in reality it is the faithfully reproduced replica. By this, it opens us the door to a completely different reality.
Suddenly, we can see the world from the perspective of birds flying above buildings. We can hold subjects in our hand which, in reality, our muscles would not be able to hold. We can move between places known to us at a rate which we could not dream of, or watching giant butterflies landing on the roof.
All this makes the imagination jump to a higher gear and begins to sharpen our senses. This way we can recover memories of our childhood, when we played with small dolls or toy soldiers. Or move into the future in which drones will be able to look in every nook and give us a view from any perspective.
Convince yourself and visit our Miniature Park.
Open daily from 9:00 to 17:00.

Early tomorrow morning a short documentary about the Miniature Park of the Lower Silesian Monuments in Kowary will be broadcasted in Polish television on "Polsat News". Much of the documentation has been dedicated to the work of our Model Builders, so there is an opportunity to discover the secrets of our Architecture Studio. We are pleased that the team of reporters enjoyed the time in the Park, accompanied by Mr Marian Piasecki (owner of the Miniature Park). And as we expected, the biggest surprise for the journalists was the "gold train". The train and many other exhibits and miniatures can be admired every day from 9:00am 'till 5:00pm!

Like every year on the feast day of St. Valentine many lovers visited our Park. Those who visited us could enjoy the beautiful weather. In the morning it was raining lightly but that brought two beautiful rainbows and in the evening the clear sky allowed to enjoy a magical sunset in the Giant Mountains.

This week you can take a look behind the scenes of the Architectural Model Studio in the Miniature Park in Kowary. The current project is the miniature of the castle Frydlant. It offers an interesting combination of medieval elements and modernization in the Renaissance style. The most famous owner was Albrecht von Wallenstein, a brilliant strategist, who commanded the armies of the Emperor during the Thirty Years War. Soon, the model is another attraction in the Miniature Park. Until then, our guests have the opportunity to observe our modelbuilders during their work.
We are open daily between 9:00 to 17:00!

For the children of Lower Silesia the winter break has begun today. There are many ideas on how to spend the holiday. Among the best ones are the ski trip and the visit of the Miniature Park in Kowary. The mountains sink into the white of the snow, so that skiers have finally the feeling of a real winter. This is confirmed by the photographs from our Park from last weekend.

We are open daily from 9.00 until 17.00 o'clock!

The Architecture Studio in the Miniature Park in Kowary will soon finish their latest masterpiece - the Miniature of the narrow-gauge railway in the community of Rewal. The models of the five stations are presented in the Miniature Park in Kowary until the project is completed. They stay here for several months until they are presented as the new attraction in the Miniature Park of the Polish Lighthouses in Niechorze, where the original narrow-gauge railway is located.
We are open daily from 9.00 until 17.00 o'clock.

Last week we had the special opportunity to organize a meeting of the "Rotary Club Jelenia Góra", which was held in the cafeteria of our Miniature Park in Kowary. Marian Piasecki took care of our guests on this special evening.
We thank all those who participated.

The frost and the last traces of snow disappear from the Jelenia Góra Valley. The sunny weather gives us the feeling of spring, but is still far away. Nevertheless, this kind of weather provides the opportunity for a long walk in the mountains and of course a visit to our Miniature Park in Kowary. In our Park you can enjoy the fresh mountain air, while admiring our miniatures and then enjoy a coffee or a hot chocolate in our warm hall.

We are open daily from 9.00 until 17.00!

Tonight we welcome the year 2016. For this reason, we decided to take a look back at the last 365 days!
Last winter brought a lot of snow, but the spring came quickly and just as quickly it turned into a nice, long, hot summer.

Our Model Studio completed three major projects: the miniature of the Palace Bad Muskau and the town hall of Kołobrzeg and a replica of the largest foghorn of the Baltic Sea. The latter two for the Miniature Park in Niechorze.

The Park of Bouncy Castles celebrated its first season. The new attraction in Kowary is a dream world full of bouncy castles and other attractions for the youngest. Starting this year, always in the summer, children can jump, romp and swim between colored palaces and castles. For the waiting adults we have set up an outdoor Café and a Burger Bar.

The highlight of the last year was the discovery of the "Gold Train", which you can now see in our Park every day. Of course, with gold loaded but 25 times smaller than the original!

We would like to thank everyone who visited us in 2015!
We wish you all a Happy New Year!

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!

This week we had the honor to welcome Tadeusz Słowikowski in our Miniature Park. Mr. Słowikowski has found the first traces of the tunnel, in which the "Gold Train" is suspected. It all began after the war, in the late 40s, when Mr. Słowikowski started to work in the mine Wałbrzych. Here he got the first information about the train. This was the beginning of a remarkable journey that continues to this day, and made Tadeusz Słowikowski an expert in this field. He talked with many eye-witnesses and collected information. Since his research were brought to the public by two men, he is besieged by many journalists and filmmakers from around the world. But he still found the time to visit the Park in the company of his grandchildren and took a look at our Gold Train. We can proudly say that he liked it as the owner of the Park - Marian Piasecki - can attest.
