  • A beautiful green area, which is a well-tended park, full of different species of plants and trees. Wonderful azaleas, magnolias, rotors and these great trees! Platans, pine, sprout. An oasis in the village, right next to the road, and yet other air. You could take care of the pond, it is too green:)

  • The castle in Kórnik is an excellent historical object, but it is towed by the park-Arboretum, which is a forest garden. Well-kept, with attractions for different age groups, available for a small fee. Depending on the season, it changes its face, allowing you to enjoy the walk in different months and in different weather. Besides the interesting species of trees there are other plants, including many species of hydrangea. It is only a pity that the arboretum does not lead to the sale of plants, which can be found on the grounds of the park. Compulsory walk!
