Long Description:
Der Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau (polnisch Park Muzakowski) ist ein Landschaftspark in der Oberlausitz. Mit einer Gesamtfläche von 750 Hektar ist er der größte Landschaftspark Zentraleuropas im englischen Stil. Der nach seinem Schöpfer Hermann Fürst von Pückler-Muskau benannte Park liegt zu etwa einem Drittel in der sächsischen Stadt Bad Muskau, der größere Teil des Parks liegt östlich der Lausitzer Neiße und nördlich der polnischen Stadt Leknica (Lugknitz). Beide Teile sind durch mehrere Neißebrücken miteinander verbunden. Zentrales Gestaltungselement des Parks ist das Neue Schloss Muskau.

Der im Weltkulturerbe befindliche Park ist das einzige sächsische Welterbe und eine der wenigen staatenübergreifenden Welterbestätten.

The Muskau Park (German: Muskauer Park, officially: Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau, Polish: Park Muzakowski), is the largest and one of the most famous English gardens of Germany and Poland.

Situated in the historic Upper Lusatia region, it covers 3.5 square kilometers (1.4 sq mi) of land in Poland and 2.1 km2 (0.81 sq mi) in Germany. The park extends on both sides of the Lusatian Neisse river, which constitutes the border between the countries. The 17.9 km2 (6.9 sq mi) buffer zone around the park encompassed the German town Bad Muskau (Upper Sorbian: Mužakow) in the West and Polish Leknica (Wjeska, former Lugknitz) in the East. While Muskau Castle is situated west of the river, the heart of the park are the partially wooded raised areas on the east bank called The Park on Terraces. In 2003 a pedestrian bridge spanning the Neisse was rebuilt to connect both parts.

On July 2, 2004, UNESCO added the park to its World Heritage List, as an exemplary example of cross-border cultural collaboration between Poland and Germany. It was added to the list on two criteria: for breaking new ground in terms of development towards the ideal man-made landscape, and for its influence on the development of landscape architecture as a discipline.
