Ogrod Japonski (Japanese Garden) Wroclaw Reviews
a short stop would be nice... Sep 29, 2015
Within a few steps away from/to the Centenary Hall. The area is a little out of the way from the city proper, but we took a short ride via the City Metro to get there.
Some tidbits of history:
The inspiration to cultivate a Japanese Garden came from a previous plot of greens used for a world exhibition. Immediately after the presentation; uprooting the plants was the next thing they did. Meanwhile, many decades have passed, the forgotten oasis of greens was reborn! The Japan Embassy and the Wroclaw Authorities tied in to revive the garden. With the combined talents of individuals who specialized in gardening, horticulture, and landscaping; the park has easily metamorphosed into a picturesque, vibrant and a well-cultivated garden!
What to expect:
Aside from the thousands of botanical species thriving in the entire garden; visitors can also enjoy stone art arrangements that are common in Japanese gardens. The two cascades of flowing water is as delightful as those pathways laced with multi-colored flowering plants. Not to mention the sounds of bubbling waters were relaxing. In the middle of the park, is the man-made lake that has a vast shoreline, and a beautiful covered wooden bridge connecting the two banks. Some visitors take a seat here and enjoy the scenery while others spend several hours wandering around.
While we’re there, we saw a bride and a groom having their wedding pictures taken in that park; therefore, this garden could be a famous venue for bridal photo shooting. I agree, the Japanese Garden in Wroclaw is not only beautiful but also a serene place despite the left and right tourists.
Personal recommendation: ;-)
With multi-colored flowers, my friend and I had many opportunities for a so-called floral or landscape photography. Likewise, those who are looking to get away from the busy crowd of the Wroclaw Old Town, the Japanese Garden offers some piece of quiet.
By the way, there is an inexpensive fee of € 1.00 to get within "Wroclaw's backyard."
