Rogalin
Rogalin garden, located a few kilometers south of Poznan, with its famous old oaks and newly renovated palace, is a popular place of visits, especially on weekends.

First records about the village Rogalin came from the beginning of XIII century but the palace was built only in seventies of XVIII century by Kazimierz Raczyński.

The garden, surrounding the palace in Rogalin, was created also in the second part of XVIII century and consists both of a garden as well as a park. The garden, which lies directly at the palace, is a typical French baroque formal garden with Dutch influence. The connection of strict geometrical layout with a large amount of other forms, fulfilling the interior, is typical for baroque garden.

The characteristic and quite unique feature of Rogalin garden is an artificially made mound (known as Parnassus), which serves as a viewpoint for visitors. The mound is surrounded by lanes framed by hornbeams.

But Rogalin means not only a baroque garden but also, connected with it, the landscape park, having the focus on natural elements.

The Europe's largest group of monumental oak trees, was included into this park by Edward Raczyński in years 1820-40. The most famous oaks are Lech, Czech and Rus, located within the park and Edward, located close to the river bank. The landscape park is connected with surrounding meadows and forests of the banks of the Warta river.

To protect this area of largest group of monumental oak trees as well as the whole region of Warta banks, the Rogalin Landscape Park was created in 1997. The other famous species, also under law protection, is great capricorn beetle, which lives on monumental oaks.

Edward Bernard Raczyński, who was the last owner of this estate, in 1991 has founded Raczyński Foundation and through this foundation he bequeathed his estate in Rogalin to Polish nation.
