THE SARNY CASTLE
Over more than four centuries, the Sarny Castle has evolved from a modest Renaissance defensive manor house, to one of the most important residences in the Kłodzko County. Its purchase was even of interest to the Save Britain’s Heritage foundation, operating under the patronage of Charles, late Prince of Wales. Since 2013, the entire complex has been looked after by the Sarny Castle Trust, which is restoring it to its former glory. The lavishly illustrated guide takes an accessible look at the history of the building and its former owners. In addition, it contains detailed descriptions of the Castle, the Gate House, St. John of Nepomuk Chapel, the park and the Eduard Petzold European Centre for Garden Art.
The guide is available exclusively in Polish for purchase in the Sarny Castle Café and Restaurant.

The Sarny Castle in Ścinawka Górna is one of the largest historical residences in Lower Silesia. It is accompanied by an extremely valuable landscaped park by the eminent designer Eduard Petzold, which inspired the establishment of the first garden art centre in Poland – the Eduard Petzold European Centre for Garden Art.

Musealisation of the European Gardens in the twenty-first century
Garden art consists of a wide spectrum of artistic phenomena and technical solutions related to the composition of greenery. It constitutes one of the integral elements of Europe’s rich heritage and a living record of its timeless values. For at least two centuries, historic gardens have been an object of care of conservators and historians who strive to preserve their artistic, historical, scientific and natural values. They were joined by museologists who perpetuate the memory of the gardens through, inter alia, collecting and processing museum exhibits, providing access to collections, as well as curatorial and educational activities.
Book was published under the patronage of the European Route of Historic Gardens, on the occasion of the establishment of the Eduard Petzold European Centre for Garden Art by the Sarny Castle Trust in 2020.

A Europe of united gardens
The role of the European Route of Historic Gardens in the implementation of the cultural policy of the European Union
In October 2020, the European Route of Historic Gardens was certified by the Council of Europe. This was not only a great honour, but also an important step in recognising the historic, artistic, social and natural values of historic green spaces. Admission to the Cultural Route of the Council of Europe has also opened up opportunities to participate in various projects promoting culture and tourism at the international level. What could be the role of the European Route of Historic Gardens in this regard? How can it be involved in the implementation of the European Union’s cultural policy? This paper seeks to find answers to these questions.
