If you have ever wondered which Polish park is the most beautiful? You should visit my favourite one – Park Skaryszewski. In 2009 it was named the 3rd most lovely public park in Europe.
It’s located next to the National Stadion where EURO 2012 was performed. But who cares. Let’s take a look at the nature. Skaryszak (short name) is quite large (almost 60 ha). Inside you can see 280 species of trees, squirrels, ducks and other lovely animals. There are also small interior rivers, a lake with an island and even a waterfall. The charming pond is an oxbow lake, a meander cut off from the main stream of the Vistula river, and there is a boat hire service available from the bankside bars.
Soon Park Skaryszewski will be closed entirely for general refurbishment. It is said that it would be more elegant (without pipes and soviet monuments) and more European however I do not believe them. For me it’s perfect like it is: wild, natural and splendid. So hurry up to relax there as it is now.
