Kochanowski Park

more than a year ago
At just over one hundred years old, Kochanowski Park was originally laid out in a classic English style in the city's Music District, close to the Philharmonic and Music Academy. At 3.2 hectares, the park contains 80 species of trees and shrubs as well as a number of interesting statues. Of the latter, the most famous is The Archer, one of the symbols of the city and unveiled way back in 1910. In the northeast corner you'll find a metal rose; the work of Józef Makowski, it commemorates 50 students murdered by the Germans in the city on September 5, 1939. Other statues of note are one of the Nobel Prize-winning Polish novelist Henryk Sienkiewicz and the composer Karol Szymanowski. A popular haunt for picnicking students and young lovers, the park also contains a children's playground and is highly-recommended for a peaceful afternoon stroll.
The Archer in Kochanowski Park is one of the most iconic sights of Bydgoszcz.
