  • Description


    The foundation was established in 2014 and since then has been taking care of a part (2 ha) of historic Spa Park and historical building in Głuchołazy – southern Poland. The other parts of the Spa park belong to Głuchołazy commune and Nysa poviat. The history of the park dates back to the end of the 19th century, it was established shortly after the town received the status of a health resort. Głuchołazy is a border town with a rich, 800-year history. The virtues of Głuchołazy (Bad Ziegenhals) health resort to this day are: healthy air, light, diet and cold water used as per the recommendations of Vincent Priessnitz. Those four virtues turned out to be effective means of treatment at the turn of 19th/20th. In 2016 We reconstructed part of historic park basing on archival postcards. There are paths with educations boards and places with benches and tables to relax surrounded by variety of plants. In 2019 Głuchołazy commune revitalized the big part of the park, there are playgroungs, outdoor gym, health path, pavments and places for rest. In 2018 the poviat eldership in Nysa built in their part of the park a brine graduation tower.The park is renewed and willingly visited by tourists, but still it requires care and maintenance. Besides, the park lies within the boundaries of the landscape park “Góry Opawskie” and in the part belonged to the foundation there is a breeding colony of rare species of a bat strictly protected by Polish law and therefore there is a special protection zone in here. In 2021 Foundation finished a reconstruction project of a historical guesthouse and since then runs th Artist's House in there. It organises cultural activities such as presentations, concerts, lectures, open-air activities, artistic workshops, etc.
