Adam Mickiewicz Park in Gdańsk-Oliwa
A beautiful, historic park in Oliwa District in Gdańsk, an oasis of peace in the middle of the city. It is impossible to describe this place because, in every of its corners, there is something else waiting for you – the botanical part with specimens of flora from different continents, a magnificent palm house, whisper caves from the eighteenth century, the Oliwa Stream... In one part it is modelled on French baroque garden art, in another, you can admire an English-style park. It was founded on the initiative of abbot Jacek Rybiński in the first half of the 18th century, although as early as in the 15th century a beautiful park already existed in this place. The Abbots' Palace is located there, and right next to it the famous Oliwa Archcathedral. In the summer, visitors to the Oliwa Park include not only lovers of amazing greenery – the MOZARTIANA Festival of Mozart's music takes place there in August, and during the summer holidays, you can also participate in the series of concerts “Music in the Gazebo”.
