Muskauer Park / Park Muzakowski

Muskauer Park / Park Muzakowski: The Muskauer Park is the largest English landscape park in central Europe. The park streches on both banks of the River Neisse. In the period 1815-1845, Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau laid out an English landscape garden around his castle. The Muskauer Park was acquired by Prince Frederick of the Netherlands in 1846. The well-known landscape designer Eduard Petzold was put in charge of the garden and park. After World War II, as a result of the Potsdam Conference, the park was divided into a German part, on the left bank of the Neisse, and a Polish part on the right bank of the river. Only one third of the Muskauer Park is located in Germany and two thirds in Poland. Both parts of the park are connected by several bridges. The Old Castle and New Castle are situated in the German part. The Muskauer Park / Park Muzakowski was declared an UNESCO World Heritage in 2004.
