It combines more than a hundred buildings and small architectural forms - monuments of national importance; has approved zone protection. He founded the park in 1796 by a Polish magnate Stanislav Potockiy in honor of his wife, the beautiful Greek Sophia and gave it to her on the day of her angel, in May 1802. The idea of ​​creating a park in the romantic style with Roman and Greek mythology belonged to Sophia herself. Amazing landscapes, exotic plants, ancient sculptures, ponds, waterfalls, fountains, stone grottoes - all in harmony and create a unique atmosphere of a fairy tale. This masterpiece impresses visitors with its beauty for over 210 years. The park has even well preserved oak aged about 400 years - a silent witness of many events that took place there.

Парк настолько большой, что обойти все за 1 день трудно. Лучше выбираться летом на 2 дня с ночевкой в городе.
