Hornbeam Alley in Złocieniec


Złocieniec, the town in Middle Pomerania (north-western Poland), offers several tourist atractions, but the most interesting is Hornbeam Alley in the city park. The park was created in the early 18th century and belonged to the family von Griesheim. The current name (Park Żubra - Żuber's Park) comes from the Jan Żuber - first post-war protector of park. The Hornbeam Alley is created by the 83 historic trees with specially shaped crowns. They form a kind of canopy - the gate. The most interesting is fusion of two tree trunks at a height of about two meters over the ground.

  29. Amazing, the alley looks huge! Thanks to the old trees. In Kolobrzeg they are much younger and smaller. I haven't been in Złocieniec for long time. I think it's time for visit :)
