Gardens of Light is an international project aimed at showcasing the world’s most spectacular historic gardens and museums. The six partner institutions of the project are Prince Pückler Park in Bad Muskau in Germany, Tsarskoye Selo Museum in Saint Petersburg in Russia, Prince Kung’s Palace Museum in Beijing in China, Chateau de Luneville in France, The Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, Denmark and the Royal Łazienki Museum in Warsaw.
The main goal of the Gardens of Light is to communicate to the public the historic and stylistic visions representing the 17th, 18th and 19th century architecture and garden design with their focus on a seamless blend of nature and art and strong connections to scientific discoveries and philosophical thought of the period.
The first event in 2016 will be the Winter Evening of Light - an evening walk in the gardens, lit by lanterns. During the walk, the guests will have an opportunity to admire picturesque garden illuminations. The walk will take place simultaneously in all the participating institutions. The following events planned for 2016 are the International Day of Music, the Sphere of Silence Music Festival as well as the Festival of Light.
