Oliwa Park Palm House

  ul. Opata Jacka Rybińskiego ,   Oliwa         12 Jul 2022
Oliwa Park's historic Palm House dates back to the 18th century and has always been a key component of the abbey complex and park. Consisting of a unique glass rotunda with adjustable height and a separate orangery full of exotic plants, the entire complex was renovated and only reopened as recently as spring of 2022. In fact, the structures had previously been remodelled in the 1950s and the date palm tree inside had grown so much since that it had damaged the roof of the glass enclosure. In 2017, the old building was dismantled, but the new construction soon became so expensive and problematic that it dragged on for five years, during which time Oliwa's 180-year-old, 17-meter-tall prize palm tree tragically died and had to be removed. Although the new rotunda is quite spectacular and the historic palm has been replaced by three new ones, a void remains.
