Podkowa Leśna is a picturesque town in Poland’s central Mazovia region. The town is located within Młochowskie Forests along the route of Warsaw’s first suburban electric railway.

Established in the early 20th century, Podkowa Leśna has preserved its character as a garden community to this day. It boasts delightfully diverse fauna and flora and a wealth of natural attractions including nature reserves. Along its numerous cycling, horse-riding and hiking trails you will come across people who value exercise and fresh air. For its urban design, buildings and greenery, the town has been entered into a register of the nation’s historic sites. Podkowa Leśna’s villas and houses offer a gallery of different architectural styles. Festivals, chamber concerts, recitals and exhibitions organized by cultural institutions have become a regular element of the town’s life. The Literary and Musical Meetings at the Anna and Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz Museum always draw a crowd. In the summertime festival concerts are held at the Garden Church of St. Christopher, featuring leading soloists and chamber groups.

Open Gardens Festival in Podkowa Leśna: June 1-3
The festival, held for the past seven years and coordinated by the Center for Culture and Civic Initiatives, will kick off on June 1 with a conference entitled In the European Family of Garden Cities and a presentation about Hellerau, a German garden city. On June 2 you are invited to Breakfast at Baniewicz’s at the Podkowa Leśna Główna railway station; this event will focus on the work of one of the town’s founding fathers. That evening at the Borowin villa there will be a performance of Babie lato (Indian Summer), based on a play by Jerzy Kowalski, whose plot unfolds after the Warsaw Uprising. These are just some of the 40 events planned for Podkowa Leśna’s garden festival, which will end on June 3 with dances on a makeshift stage in front of the Kasyno Palace to Hungarian music.
