ARBORETUM WOJSŁAWICE WELCOMES YOU!
This year’s spring does not spoil us, but the coming days will finally bring the longed-for warmth and sunshine. The University of Wrocław invites you to the Wojsławice Arboretum, scenically situated on the Niemczańsko-Strzelińskie Hills. We opened the tourist season at the Arboretum this Sunday!
On April 18, after the winter break, we re-opened the Wojsławice Arboretum – the Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław, which is located in the protected landscape of the Niemczańsko-Strzelińskie Hills. This beautiful and unique place is decorated with a collection of over 14,000 taxa (species and varieties) of woody plants and perennials. Spring time means great changes in nature. They are especially visible in the richness of flowering plants of our Arboretum. We are waiting for the festival of the diversity of colours and scents from the leading collections of magnolias (over 100 species and varieties), rhododendrons and then lilacs. The flowering Hellebore, as well as flowering trees and shrubs are delightful. Soon the cherry orchard on one of the picturesque hills will bloom. This orchard is the Gene Bank of Lower Silesian Cherry Varieties (over 200 species and varieties) and is the only such establishment in Poland. Soon the rebates with the endearing and priceless National Collections of peonies, rhododendrons and daylilies will shower with flowers. These are the only such rich and exemplary collections of species and cultivars of these plants in Poland.
In 2020, the Millennium Garden was opened, which is an extraordinary collection of achievements, honouring the works of Polish breeders. In this part of the Arboretum, there are varieties of such genera as: daylilies, iris, clematis, rhododendrons, spruces and miscanthus. A significant part of the area is designated for conservation (in-situ) cultivation for protected, endangered and endangered plants, which is one of the most important ecological activities for the protection of biodiversity.
The arboretum has been awarded many times as an important tourist attraction, in recognition of its extraordinary aesthetic and educational values. In 2020, in the category of Tourist Product of the Polish-Czech Borderland, the competition jury recognized the Wojsławice Arboretum – Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław, as one of the most beautiful facilities of this type on the Polish-Czech border. We appreciate all the awards, but the greatest interest for us is the constant interest of the inhabitants of Lower Silesia and other regions who visit this – a bit unusual – facility of the University of Wrocław in large numbers. We invite everyone from Sunday. Let’s enjoy the contact with the beauty and diversity of nature together!
