Description

Rogalin Landscape Park (Polish: Rogaliński Park Krajobrazowy) is a protected area (Landscape Park) in west-central Poland, covering an area of 126.4 square kilometres (48.8 sq mi). It includes two nature reserves.

Overview

The Park lies within Greater Poland Voivodeship, across the Poznań County and the Śrem County. It stretches along the banks of the Warta river, and takes its name from the village of Rogalin, which is famous for its historic palace of the Raczynski family and oak trees. About 2000 magnificent oaks are found on the banks of the river Warta near Rogalin, among numerous oxbow lakes. It is Europe’s largest group of monumental oak trees, located within the Rogalin Landscape Park. Their trunks reach a circumference of up to 9 metres, and all those reaching over 2 m in circumference are protected by law.
