As you walk along the alleys of the Miniature Park and observe the most famous architectural wonders of Poland and the world, you will also have an opportunity to enjoy our unique floral decorations. The site of every plant has been planned to complement our miniatures and form an integral whole.
The miniature of the Old Bridge in Mostar is surrounded by golden hardhacks – shrubs living up to 50 years – and yellow catalpas, which can grow to be as high as 10–15 m in our climate.
The Triumphant Arch is enlivened by the vibrant red colour of the red barberry and creeping juniper, which can adapt to various surfaces and form dense carpets up to 30 cm in height.
The area around the Acropolis of Athens is dominated by coniferous trees: Norway spruces, nest spruces or Bosnian pines.
To the right of the Malbork Castle, there are red and white roses resembling the Polish flag, and the foot of the Pieskowa Skała Castle is overgrown by a colourful rug of the Cotoneaster, with its decorative leaves, flowers and fruit.
The area of Zakopane is rich with pines, dwarf mountainpines, Korean firs and Conica spruces – a very popular variety of the white spruce, with a dense, regular conical crown.
Other noteworthy plants include the Saint John’s wort – which is widely used in herbal medicine – and the hosta – with its bell-shaped white or purple flowers – and, naturally, azaleas, all of which can be found near the miniature of the Moszna Castle. Azaleas are beautiful decorative shrubs that create multi-coloured carpets in many hues of pink, red, purple and white when they bloom in the spring. They are also characterised by their unique, strong smell. The Azalea Bloom Day takes place each year on the walls of this famous heritage building in the Opole region.
Every miniature, from the smallest to the largest, creates an exceptional, unique composition. Visit us to find this out for yourself! You’ll be welcome anytime…
