Mużakowski Park

Despite the fact that that this park is often ignored, this region of Poland deserves attention. Mużakowski Park in the Lubusz region is the largest English style landscape park in both Poland and Germany. It was founded in the first half of the 19th century by the Prussian aristocrat, Prince Hermann von Puckler-Muskau. In 2004 it was approved as part of the UNESCO world heritage programme. It is also known by the name of Park von Muskau, Muskauer Park or Furst-Puckler-Park. The 700 hectares of parkland are located in the Nysa Łużycka river valley, near the Łuk Mużakowa landscape park. Tourists can travel to nearby Bad Muskau in Saxony or Łęknica in Żary county, Lubusz province. The central part of the park with gardens and residential buildings is located in Germany whereas on the Polish side you can find a 500-hectare park. Admission to both parts of the park (German and Polish) is free and is open for vistors 24 hours a day.
