Description

Saxon Garden – when it off Piłsudski Square opened its gates to the public in 1727 it became one of the first public parks in the World. The garden had been landscaped in the 17th century for the Saxon Palace, which was lost in the Second World War, along with the Rococo Brühl Palace that also backed onto the park. In its first century Saxon Garden was a Baroque parterre in the style of Versailles, but has been an English landscape park since the 19th century. Seek out the park’s allegorical sculptures, fashioned in the mid-18th century. Twenty remain from an initial 70, and you can try to work out what each one symbolises (Intellect, Justice, Astronomy, Painting and Poetry are all pretty easy to decipher).
