River of flowers, Warsaw Vistula meadow restoration

Goledzinów – River of flowers

In 2010 a 42ha allotment area has been wiped out by flooding river. There area has be cleared of bungalows and fences and became a remote close to nature recreational area. A part of that area has been prepared by cultivator in meandering string shape creating a “River of flowers”. To the mixture of seeds of native wildflowers characteristic to alluvial meadows, seeds of poppies and cornflower has been added. That was done for a spectacular visual effect in the first year.

Although the area is often visited by runners and cyclists it is one of very few areas in Warsaw where protected specious of bird corn crake Crex Crex can be heard.
