Description

The Garden Cities concept of Ebezener Howard aroused interest among Polish architects of 20th century beginning. Many attempts were done to realize it in the enthusiastic time after regaining independence by Poland in 1918. The Podkowa Leśna project is considered today to be the most successful one.

Podkowa Leśna is surrounded by the towns and villages of similar park character: Brwinów, Milanówek, Komorów. We will slowly pass them, stopping by the places of interest.

Pęcice war cemeteries are located on the edge of the vast park of Pęcice Manor. With Warsaw skyline visible it’s easy to draw the bit of local geography here, reflecting on the 20th century history on the soldiers graves.

In nearby Pruszków town we will travel 20 centuries back in time to see the ancient prehistoric ironworking settlement, where the swords brought to the Roman Empire were produced. The Mazovian Center of Metallurgy from the turn of the eras is one of the major discoveries of post-war Polish archaeology. All of the multimedia materials to the Exhibition are available in three languages: Polish, English, German.

Through the labyrinth of narrow streets of Komorów and roads in the forest we head next to Karolin Manor to see the place where the legendary “Mazowsze” folk song and dance ensemble had and still have it’s home. Two charismatic leaders, the Sygietyński couple, with support of the communistic state looking for still common values in the captive nation, created the successful team of the singers and the dancers, performing on the whole world’s scenes.

Communist era is reminded also by huge ZIL limousine – one of many exhibits in close Otrębusy Museum of Vintage Vehicles. The collection makes the cars produced after the First World War, vehicles used during the Second War, the communist era cars, European old-timers and the American Dream super-cars. The "must see" place.

It is just few minutes' drive from Otrębusy to Podkowa Leśna, where after taking a short look at the local Garden Church we will have a chance to have lunch in historical Kasyno Obywatelskie (People's Club).

Next we will visit Stawisko Manor – the prominent Polish poet and writer, Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz, house. The way he lived here, like a rich noble, is a clear contradiction to the poet stereotype – poor and lonely. We will unravel this mystery on the spot.

The last place to visit on the tour is Kazimierówka, where in the park scenery we will be surprised by emanating with vital mystery of Aztec-like sculptures of the great Mexican artist – Juan Soriano, a "fragile demon" as called by American press. Kazimierówka Manor cared by Juan life partner, Marek Keller, is an important part of the artist legacy.
