Wroclaw is full of nice surprises, and few are more pleasant to the casual tourist than stumbling this horticultural gem. The Japanese Garden owes its existence to the 1913 World Expo, when it was exhibited in the category of Artistic Gardening on the initiative of Count Fritz von Hochberg who commissioned Oriental landscape guru Mankichi Arai to do his thing. The garden fell into a sorry state after time but was restored in 1996 with funding from the Japanese Embassy in Warsaw. Open from April 'til October this miniature park, with its pagodas, cascades, oriental shrubs and narrow bridges, is a real treat.

A jewel within a jewel within...seeing as I rate Wroclaw itself among the five most beautiful cities in Europe.Pity the train service is so slow and air links so limited. Finding a bit of Japan is not the least of the city's assets and glories.
The parks are one of the main reasons that I love Wroclaw - it's just so green. This Japanese Garden is just one extra, quirky addition :)
a real surprise when you are walking through the huge parks in wroclaw to come across this cute little garden. a little gem in this wonderful city.
Really very beautiful. Wroclaw should truly be known as Poland's greenest city, as its parks are wonderful, vast green spaces. This garden is just a tranquil bonus.
great little place, a real gem, went there in winter and it was quiet, contemplative and utterly beautiful
Well i havn't been there but it sounds great.
