Kosciuszko Park, Katowice
Categories: Nature & Parks
The Kosciuszko Park, which has existed since 1925, is one of the most famous and frequented parks in Katowice, Poland. It is situated at the street of the same name.Its foundation dates back to 1888 when a municipal park was founded on the 6 ha area of suburban grove. The present area of the park is 72 ha. Its arrangement is influenced by English gardens-parks, which is emphasized by an alley of roses turned to wild. The park used to belong to the most beautiful places in Katowice, also because of the flower arrangements on the flower-beds and pergolas and classicistic gardens. After dusk the park is lit by stylish street lamps but it is not a safe part of the town in the evening.In the park there are several structures which are worth seeing. There is a commemorative plaque funded for the patron, Tadeusz Kościuszko, by the people of Katowice in 1925. The parachute tower also dates back to that time. It is currently being rebuilt to its height of 40 m; it was erected as a training structure. Not far from it there is a monument commemorating the heroic participation of scouts in the defence of the town against the Nazi invaders in 1939. Two unique structures of wooden building in Upper Silesia, a manorial granary from 1688 (burnt in 1970) and the Church of St. Michael Archangel, a wooden church under the invocation of St. Michael from 1510 moved from Syrynia, were placed in the park. In the park there is also a permanent gallery of plein-air sculpture, collecting works of famous artists of the region: Zygmunt Brachmanski, Augustyn Dyrda, Joachim Krakowczyk, Piotr Latoska, Jacek Sarapata, Andrzej Szczepaniec.Plan to see Kosciuszko Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Katowice vacation generator.

Stroll around is 3 km. in the Park the old wooden church, parachute Tower and old toboggan run in winter, besieged by children with sleigh.

Often break into cars and polocja can not resolve so difficult for them the problem. Better to stand a bit further and NOTHING in the Middle do not leave on the view.show original

Neat alleys amongst the old trees that fall to become very picturesque. Birds singing, the Chipmunks go to lobby the lawn under trees make the time ceases to have meaning and in the middle of the city you can relax and silence. Parachute Tower is one of the attractions of the Park. It was here in 1939, Scouts fought the German invaders. A good place to stroll, jog or a shortcut on the way to work. Recommend.show original
