We invite you to celebrate the 2nd European Day of Historic Gardens together, under the slogan ‘Historic gardens and the formation of European Spirit’.
This year, we emphasise the transboundary value of the historic gardens’ heritage. This heritage has reflected the identity of the countries and regions of Europe throughout the centuries, as well as showing their unity in the common creation of a better life and landscape. On this occasion, we have prepared two special webinars.
‘UNESCO in the neighbourhood: Historic gardens of Poland, Germany and Czechia on the World Heritage List’ – a webinar
The historic gardens inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List constitute a special part of our cultural heritage, expressing unique and universal values. In order for a given site to be included on this list, it is necessary to meet the criteria specified in the Convention, as well as additional conditions such as authenticity and integrity. The lecture explains the meaning of these concepts using the example of six selected sites in Poland, Germany and Czechia which are located near Kamieniec Palace. The webinar is available in Polish on the YouTube channel of Sarny Castle.
‘1880 in the life and work of Eduard Petzold’ – a webinar
Eduard Petzold came to Sarny Castle in 1880 at the special invitation of its owner, Max Schneider. This event initiated a great rearrangement of the park, the effects of which we can admire to this day. That year also saw many important moments in the lives of Eduard Petzold and his family. During the lecture, page by page we will look at the designer’s diary to trace all his memories. The webinar is available in Polish on the YouTube channel of Sarny Castle.
The full programme of events and special materials for the 2nd European Day of Historic Gardens are available on the European Route of Historic Gardens website.
