Garden Fairy Tales

History of the Garden Tales begins after the First World War. It is the work of Isidore Kriesten, forestry worker, who at his home for many years to create fairy-tale creatures, using the bark, pine cones, tree trunks and branches. For a variety of land also planted a lot of interesting, beautiful flowering plants, including rhododendrons, giving the garden a fabulous look and emphasizing the characters standing in it.

After World War II garden fell into oblivion, its exhibits in the vast majority are destroyed or stolen, and so far tended wild plants and overgrown weeds. Fortunately, it failed to renew, and in the years 1974-1981 was even permanent care in the person of scouts who bring it to its former glory during camps held each summer in Międzygórze. Then, the resulting figures include Rumcajs robber, triceps dragon, the Knight Bus, Baba Yaga hut, Snow White Princess and Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf and many other exhibits. After 1981 once again left himself and the garden for several years had no guardian.

In 1985, Garden Tales was acquired by Branch PTTK Międzygórze and since then we can talk about the real period of glory. Taken from that time a lot of new sculptures, to trace the garden path and made available to the public. Everyone will find something interesting here, from the kindly dwarf Opalka Koszalka, the Smurfs and the Road Runner Ostrich. Program is a must when photographing the Little House of Love, drinking the water from the Source and Bliss and reading in numerous aphorisms written on small wooden boards.
