European Dimension

Palaces and Parks of the Central Nadodrze constitute a diversified complex of residential architecture of great artistic value and tourist potential on a European scale. Only a few of them are currently publicly available. The aim of the project is to present European history of the architectural heritage (historical documentation and iconography, full photographic documentation of the current state) for selected objects and to create a tourist route based on them, similar to historical complexes in Western Europe, i.e. the palace and park route in the Central Rhineland and in the Loire valley. The northern region of Lower Silesia was the direct residential neighborhood of Berlin and the historical Polish-German borderland with high political significance, especially in the XVIII c during the personal union of Kingdom of Poland and Saxony. Currently, the Lubuskie voivodship has the highest percentage of ruined monuments in Poland. A large part of them are former residential buildings and surrounding parks. Historical elaboration and digitalization of historic buildings are connected with including them into the wider tourist offer of the region for European public.

All around Europe, heritage sites tell the story of men and women who, like architects do, have worked towards designing peace and hence, contributing to what makes Europe today. We’re telling the story of two “laboratories for peace” both European heritage label sites: The Peace Palace (The Hague, NL) and the Mundaneum (Mons, BE).
