Photographer's Note

The Muskau Park is one of the most extensive 19th century landscape-style park layouts in Europe. From among the numerous landscape-style park compositions created in that period the Muskau Park stands out not only owing to its artistic values, but also because of the fact that the Park, as the consequence of World War II divided by the state border on the Lusatian Neisse river, since the 1980s has been undergoing restoration carried out by two countries: Poland and Germany, within the framework of a joint project. It is owing to the efforts of the Polish side and the German side that this park in 2004 was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and at the same time became a symbol of the reconciliation between the nations of Poland and Germany and of the conservation collaboration in the field of cultural landscape protection. Thanks to cross-border cooperation measures were taken to restore the Park's historic compositions, including bridges to their former glory. The English Bridge and the Double Bridge, connecting the two banks of the Lusatian Neisse, and the Arcade Bridge situated on the Polish side of the Park have been subjected to conservation renovations whereby the bridges have been restored to their former glory.
