Juliusz Słowacki Park

Local name: Park Juliusza Słowackiego

Juliusz Słowacki Park in Wrocław is a vast open space reserve which covers the area of almost 6 ha. It was established in the 19th century in the place of former fortifications. The place contains the rotunda with the Racławice Panorama and many natural monuments. The buildings of the National Museum, Wrocław Archeological Museum, the Post and Telecommunication Museum are located near the park.

The park consists of monuments of Juliusz Słowacki, Katyn Massacre Victims, and "Four Virtues". What's also worth attention are the outdoor sculpture "Anticipation", and the so-called well of Knorr - the remains of the 19th-century monument built in honor of the designer of the Old City Promenade - which can be found near the Museum of Architecture.

The forest stand in the park is constituted by maples, buckeyes, lime trees, and beautiful specimens of oaks, hornbeams, beeches, willows, and ash trees. There are also species which are less known in Poland such as Caucasian walnut. Valuable natural monuments are the 20-meter ginkgo and ten London planes.
