Apple Garden Museum Kořenec

The garden of the museum used to be a little-used, freely accessible grassy area with a spring. Thanks to the employees and volunteers, old apple tree varieties were returned to the garden, a water surface, and a rain flower bed were created.

Besides the eco-friendly revitalization, the garden now attracts visitors with green play features, utility elements such as a game table, relaxation nooks, small elements for wildlife, and artistic creations.

The place, which used to be fallow, has become a gentle and varied environment for meeting and individual recreation, a place for programs with children, and a refuge for museum visitors.
