IN THE PARK MINIATURE SACRAL in Olszowa is fifteen thumbnails of the most beautiful basilicas and cathedrals Catholic. These are important for our region sacred objects, precious monuments and places of pilgrimage in Poland and in the world. Unlike other parks, our miniatures are made only at a 1:25 scale, and the largest miniature has a height of almost 5 meters.
Easter reminds us that hope must never be lost for as dark as the road may seem, there always lies light at the end of it. May all your prayers be fulfilled.
Have a wonderful and joyful Easter!
The castle in Moszna is one of the best known monuments in the southern Poland. The castle and park complex is the former residence of the German Tiele-Winckler family. This gigantic 7,000 square and 65,000 cubic meter construction was started in the 17th century. It contains 365 rooms and 99 turrets. It is reminiscent of English castles from the Elizabethan period.

Historically, the grey wolf held the title of the world’s most widely distributed land mammal. It ranged throughout much of the northern hemisphere, from Mexico, north through North America to the Arctic, and throughout most of Eurasia, as far south as southern India. Today, however, this species has a more restricted distribution, occurring mainly in wilderness and remote areas of Canada, Alaska, northern USA, Europe and Asia, and is extinct in parts of Western Europe, Mexico and the USA.
*The grey wolf is the largest wild canid, or member of the ‚dog’ family
*Found in many different coat colours, the grey wolf may be grey, red, brown, black, or almost pure white
*A very intelligent predator, the grey wolf can work in a group to bring down large prey up to ten times its size
*Grey wolves usually live in packs, with a dominant breeding pair
The river Bug rises in the Carpathian Mountains in the Lviv region (Ukraine). The total area of the basin is 39,420 Km2. More than 20% of the catchment area is situated in Ukraine, nearly 30% in Belarus and about 50% in Poland. The total length is 772 km, 185 km of which forms the border between Ukraine and Poland, and 178 km forms the border between Belarus and Poland. The river is the main tributary of the river Narew (Poland). In the lower reaches, the river Bug is flowing into the Zegrzynskie Lake, a large reservoir that was built as the main source of drinking water for Warsaw.
The main tributaries of the river Bug are:
In Belarus – Kopalovka, Pulva, Lesnaya Pravaya, Lesnaya, Muhavets, Ryta, Maloryta
In Poland – Solokija, Huczwa, Uherka, Krzna, Kamianka, Nurzec, Brok, Liwiec
In Ukraine – Dumni, Gapa, Luga, Poltva, Rata, Solokiia, Studianka
The Janów Podlaski Stud, established in 1817, the oldest state owned and operated horse stud in Poland, is also one of the most beautiful. Despite the name, the stud is situated two kilometers from Janów itself, in a village called Wygoda. Picturesquely set amidst lush meadows along the border river Bug, Janów Podlaski is undeniably a true „equine paradise”. Although the breeding of purebred Arabians has been primarily responsible for Janów Podlaski’s fame worldwide, the Stud’s many achievements within the realm of Anglo-Arabian breeding are also worthy of recognition and respect. A big attraction is the 19th Century stable complex situated in an old park. The oldest of these, the Clock Stable („Zegarowa”) and the Main Stallion Stable („Czolowa”) stemming from 1848 and 1841 respectively are the works of the famous architect Henryk Marconi.
