Ethnographic Park in Olsztynek

The Ethnographic Park in Olsztynek is a unique outdoor museum that provides visitors with a fascinating glimpse into Poland's traditional architecture, folk art, and customs. As you wander through the park, you'll encounter dozens of historic buildings, each one carefully reconstructed to represent a specific region and time period in Poland's history.



One of the most impressive exhibits in the park is the collection of farmhouses, which showcase the different architectural styles and building materials used in various parts of Poland. From the half-timbered structures of central Poland to the log cabins of the north, these buildings offer insight into the country's diverse cultural heritage.



In addition to the farmhouses, the park also features other historic structures, including granaries, windmills, and even a village school. Inside these buildings, you'll find exhibits showcasing traditional tools, crafts, and everyday objects that were once used by rural communities in Poland.



The park also hosts special events throughout the year, such as festivals and fairs, that celebrate the customs and traditions of Poland.


At the entrance, there is a great traditional Polish restaurant. After the long walk through the endless spaces of this outdoor museum, it is highly recommended to sit here and enjoy an excellent Polish soup and bread with schmaltz - my favorite Polish food.



Overall, the Ethnographic Park in Olsztynek is a fascinating destination that offers a unique glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Poland. Whether you're interested in history, culture, or traditional craftsmanship, visiting this outdoor museum will surely be a memorable experience.
