- 11 years Miniature Park!
- Aug 16, 2014
Yesterday the Miniature Park in Kowary celebrated its 11th birthday. The official opening of the Park took place in 2003 at the Comedy Film Festival in Lubomierz. It was the first time that our Miniatures were shown to a wider audience. 11 years ago we only had a few models, today we have 46 Miniatures. We are currently building the Miniature of the castle in Bad Muskau. We want to thank everyone who visited us in the last years.
- Another restored Palace in our Valley!
- Aug 9, 2014
Recently we found out about the renovation of the Palace in Karpnikach. We were very pleased to hear that because we present since many years the Palace in our Miniature Park in scale 1:25. A similar story took already place regarding the Palace Wojanów. First, in the original, immaculate condition presented in our Park as a miniature, the original was also restored years later. The official opening of the hotel in the historic building in Karpnikach is planned in less than a month. We wish the new owner and the team good luck and many guests. We recommend visiting the Facebook profile Zamek Karpniki • Schloss Fischbach
- Foreign guests
- Aug 6, 2014
This week our Miniature Park was visited by Norwegians from the village of Wang. The wooden church built in the town of Wang was taken to Karpacz in the nineteenth century by the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Accompanied by an animator the Norwegian tourist discovered Lower Silesia in miniature. Of course the greatest interest caught the miniature of the church Wang. This unexpected visit is the best proof that our Miniature Park is visited by people from different European countries and often even by tourists from all over the world.
- Czech guests in the Miniature Park
- Aug 3, 2014
From year to year we have more and more tourists from the Czech Republic. Our nearest neighbors visit us often in the summer because Czech students work in the holidays in our Park, and therefore we offer the guide tours also in Czech. Until recently, we only had Czech visitors who live on the Polish-Czech border, now we get visitors from all over the country. Last week we were visited by a motorcycle club from Prague. With great interest, they learned about the history of our region. We are open from 9:00 to 18:00 o'clock! We Welcome You!
- Visiting the Parliament
- Jul 25, 2014
-For the third time the beautiful south-west part of Poland is visiting our government buildings, "because it's worth it." - With these words, the delegate Ewa Kopacz opened this year's exhibition of "Palaces and gardens of the Jelenia Góra Valley". For us, this year's exhibition is very special, because one of the main elements of the exhibition is our miniature of the Palace Wojanów. Ewa Kopacz paid tribute to the preservation of the historic residences in the region and of course to the detail of our miniature. The exhibition is one of the most important events in the 10-year history of our Miniature Park. Let's hope that the event is a pulse for those who have not yet visited our beautiful region.

The Śnieżka Mountain is the main attraction that draws tourists in our region since a long time. It is one of the most frequently climbed mountains in Europe. In our Miniature Park we dedicate a lot of time to the Śnieżka Mountain. Our guests visit the peak twice, once the contemporary and once the summit of the Śnieżka Mountain from the 19th century. Recently, we added a telescope with which our guests can take a look at the wonderful summit of the Śnieżka Mountain and compare it with our miniature. On a clear day you can even see the tourists who try to climb to the summit.
- Miniature people!
- Jul 13, 2014
Staying with us at the Miniature Park in Kowary is only limited by the opening times. After visiting the Park in the company of a animator, you should take your time and go for another walk to take pictures of our miniatures. You will notice many miniature people that illustrate how big the buildings are in reality. The gardener in the Castle Książ, the King of Prussia in the Palace Mysłakowice in the company of a miniature dachshund, wedding guests leaving the Palace Moszna or tourists who follow the path to the summit of Śnieżka Mountain on foot, are just a few examples. Get yourself on the search for further, daily from 9.00 to 18.00 o'clock!
- Mud Party 2014
- Jul 9, 2014
The Mud Party is an event for fanatics of beautiful landscapes, mud and cars. By combining these three things the Mud party was created. The second edition of the festival took place in Jelenia Góra between 3rd and 6th of July 2014. During this time, the participants of the Mud Party could relax during the breaks in the Miniature Park in Kowary. Although the theme of our Park has nothing to do with cars, our guests were impressed by the unique miniatures.
- The new miniature of the Palace Wojanów
- Jul 3, 2014
The miniature of the fairy tale Palace in Wojanów was one of the first works of our model builders. Many guests have heard over the past 10 years the story of Princess Louise, who received the palace as a "small" wedding gift from her father. The first miniature of the palace will now be replaced, because our model builders have built a completely new one which was recently presented in our Miniature Park. As of July 20th, we will exhibit the new miniature in Warsaw in the Senate, where it will simultaneously represent Lower Silesia and our Miniature Park in Kowary.
