In 1783, Frederick Louis Hohenlohe, commander-in-chief of the Wrocław’s garrison, bought the forest in the village of Stare Szczytniki, popular among the citizens of Breslau, and established one of the first English-style parks on the European continent.
Today it is 100 hectares of land with extremely rich vegetation. People strolling there will find nearly 400 species of trees and shrubs, thanks to which the park ranks 4th in Europe in terms of natural values. Unique landscapes at any time of the year make it one of the favourite recreational places for the citizens of Wrocław. Fortunately, the huge area of the park guarantees that – with a little effort – we can count on intimacy and breath from the big city crowds. Accompanied by squirrels at most.
