Moved from the building at the Senatorska Park Miniatur, the Miniature Park will temporarily operate in the garden of the Central Agricultural Library at Krakowskie Przedmieście. An assembly of mock-ups in a new place and preparation for the grand opening is in progress. This is planned for the next weekend (14-15 April).
Until now, the park was located in a century-old building designed by Stanisław Grochowicz and Gustaw Landau-Gutenteger at Senatorska. However, last year ended with a three-year lease contract between the foundation and the city. In this way, models of historical buildings have been left without a seat. The search for a new place took many months, during which various proposals appeared. One of them was Kozłowski Park in Ursynów.
The Miniature Park have been looking for a new location for a long time. Until the last moment they did not know what their fate would be. Eventually, The new location is right next to the church of St. Anna and the Royal Castle. Please beware that this is a temporary location and is subject to change.
The new opening is planned for the next weekend (14 and 15 April). After that, the park will be available for seven days in weeks, from 09:00 until 22:00.
The Miniature Park team do not hide that moving miniatures to a new place was a difficult undertaking. Although the mock-ups are mobile – they can be folded and unfolded. – But every such operation it costs them a lot. Due to the time taken to carefully pack everything and transport it without damage.
Buildings of old Warsaw
In the Miniature Park you can see mock-ups of well-known, often non-existent Warsaw buildings. These include, among others, the Karasia Palace, the Grand Salon and the Iron Gate from the Saski Garden or the building of the former stock exchange.
They are all made on a scale of 1 to 25. Their construction is preceded by an analysis of available historical documents – photographs, drawings, maps, measurements, etc. This way architectural designs are created, which are then computer-processed into a three-dimensional image and printed in 3D.
