The Magic Garden, also called the Garden of Love, is deceptively similar to Greek or Roman gardens. Entering it, you feel like ancient Perseus entering Medusa's garden full of human statues. On an area of over 7 hectares there are sandstone figures depicting muse, Greek gods and the seasons. Among them, the autumn sculpture is particularly interesting, it resembles Dionysus - the god of wine, fun and attractions (which Muszyna does not lack). Among the charming walking paths on pedestals tower the statues of Adonis - Aphrodite's beloved, deities of dying and rebirth of nature; Hebe - the wife of Hercules and also the goddess of youth; Talia - daughter of Zeus, muse of comedy; Antiope - lovers of Zeus, a girl of exceptional beauty; and Kanefor, with a basket of flowers and fruit on its head. Lush vegetation, the murmur of a flowing stream, aromatic flowers soothing the senses, as well as recreational ponds will make the moment of relaxation and tranquility pleasant in this magical place. It is especially pleasant here in the evening. Light illuminations, geysers in the ponds and the music of crickets like satyr lyre create a unique atmosphere of ancient art. The garden arouses great interest among tourists and patients who flock to this open-air art museum out of curiosity. In the garden, you can also meet artists who draw from the creative atmosphere of this place. It is some guitarist who will play a serenade for his beloved, or a violinist will transport the audience into the world of lyrics, or a painter, like the god of time, Chronos, will capture the fleeting beauty of the moment with his brush. Maybe that's why people called this place the Garden of Love. There are two more magical places that you must visit. The first is a goldfish pond that can be seen from a wooden platform. Upon seeing a goldfish, you can confess your innermost dreams with the hope of making them come true. Another custom is to throw a coin into the garden fountain, which is to guarantee the gods' fortune smiles to the donors.
The gardens are especially decorated with exotic, colorful birds brought to the spa from all over the world. The long-lived Manchurian crane, colorful Indian peacock, mandarin duck, which took its name from the richly ornamented robes of mandarin (Chinese dignitaries from the Ming dynasty) are just some of the exotic birds in the Magic Gardens. You can also find a silver pheasant that the ancient Chinese worshiped as the mythical white Phoenix. Black swans, which can be found in Australia, also have a record number of feathers - over 25,000. A special attraction of the gardens are the various species of rainbow-colored parrots. They often imitate the human voice. A special linguist in this regard is Edek - the blue-fronted amazon.
The location of the gardens is not accidental. They stretch from the Antoni mineral water pump room, where the history of Muszyna as a spa was born. Although Jan Długosz mentioned the springs of Muszyna in the 15th century, the first borehole of mineral water was not made until 1929. The discovery of the waters quickly led to the construction of mineral baths and pump rooms in the vicinity of the shaft. A year later, Muszyna joined the Association of Polish Health Resorts. The spa developed rapidly. The banks of the Poprad River were filled with vacationers and visitors who took sun and river baths. A sandy beach was created with deckchairs and wicker baskets. The whole of Zapoprada was filled with music from the music pavilion. The outbreak of World War II inhibited the development of the spa, and some of the spa facilities were dismantled over time. Today Zapoprada has a completely new look and infrastructure, and crowds of guests testify to its unique qualities. The present Antoni pump room was built in 2001. The water here has an intense taste, is rich in magnesium and other elements, has a positive effect on metabolism and the functioning of many internal organs. Supports the treatment of diseases of the digestive system, kidneys and urinary tract, as well as diseases of the lower respiratory tract, rheumatology, osteoporosis, obesity and some allergic diseases. It is medicinal water and its consumption in large amounts should be consulted with a doctor.
The structure of the gardens consists of open spaces, thanks to which a large part of them is sunny during the day, which tourists eagerly take advantage of when taking a sunbath. Heliotherapy - a method of treatment with sunlight was proven at the beginning of the 20th century, and its discoverer, the Danish physician Niels Ryberg Finsen, was awarded the Nobel Prize. With the help of the sun's rays it is possible to alleviate skin ailments. In addition, the sun is great for the nervous system. Thanks to the sun, we feel a surge of energy, we are happier and more satisfied, and our body produces vitamin D3, necessary for its proper functioning. Therefore, in good weather, it is recommended to take a walk or relax in the fresh air. In Muszyna, heliotherapy was used as early as the first half of the 20th century. For people who would prefer to hide from the sun, the benches hidden among the trees next to a murmuring brook will be ideal.
