Pack your bags! We are just setting off on a magical expedition to the wonderful land of a million lights – Lumina Park in Poznan, Poland. This is definitely the most traveling light illumination we have seen so far. In just one walk, we crossed several continents and saw the hallmarks of each of the places we visited. All this accompanied by sounds typical of a given region coming from the speakers.

Right after entering Lumina Park we teleport straight to China. The unique atmosphere of the Middle Kingdom is created by its most famous symbols: characteristic lanterns, huge dragons, a maneki-neko cat, a giant panda. And something for true astrologists: a wheel of fortune with Chinese zodiac signs.

Lumina Park tour


From Asia we fly straight to Australia. We met several exotic animal species here: a giant kangaroo, a cute koala and a (slightly) aggressive agama. Fortunately, none of them were as predatory as in reality. Be careful, girls! At the end of the journey, the handsome Australian surfer from the photo below may be waiting for you. Stay alert! 😉

We return to Asia, where picturesque India awaits. First, one of Wiolczi’s travel dreams, the Taj Mahal mausoleum. It’s only a miniature version, but – to paraphrase a well-known saying – a bird in the Lumina Park is worth two in the India. Those looking for thrills can enjoy an elephant ride and a meeting with a snake charmer.

Lumina Park Poznań when


Now it’s time for real Mexico and its attributes. In one of the most colorful countries in the world, we are greeted by a cheerful mariachi band. A moment later it gets a bit scary – we encounter a giant mask with a sinister smile (when Wiolczi is about 1.6 m tall, this mask must be about 2.5-3 m). As a farewell, take a photo with the Chichén Itzá pyramid and a hot air balloon. Then you can evacuate straight to the North Pole.

North Pole – Arctic

The entrance to the Arctic is guarded by two huge reindeer. The symmetrical illumination looks as if it was created by Wes Anderson himself. On the route we met two teddy bears – one in white fur and the other in a brown coat. Wiolczi jumped into Santa’s sleigh, but she didn’t find any gifts there. Maybe because there’s still a month until St. Nicholas Day? From the frosty Arctic, we moved to hot Africa.

The Dark Continent turned out to be the most positive and ‘colorful’ impression. This is due to a huge amount of multi-colored lights and melodic sounds. The coolest adventure here was a jeep ride on a safari full of exotic animals. We met both a giant giraffe and a huge elephant here.

North America

We were guided around North America by a rather modern-looking Indian in a brown coat (he looked very much like an Australian surfer and an Arctic polar bear ;). We quickly sneak through the Caribbean pirate zone – so that we do not fall under the curse of the black pearl. The arrow leads us straight to an Indian village with a huge cross and a wigwam.

We recommend ending this great adventure with light illumination with a well-deserved warm drink. The organizers of Lumina Park took care of the winter gastronomic offer. In several places in the park you’ll find such a wooden booth. You can buy coffee, tea, mulled wine, hot chocolate and cold drinks there.

Lumina Park Poznan – reviews

  • Patrix – 8/10. This is a very original garden of lights! Usually, these types of attractions are related to Christmas or fairy tale themes. This time we were taken on a journey. This makes this experience a bit different than any other. Lumina Park is large and diverse, and the millions of bulbs are impressive! A small minus for the relatively high price, especially when traveling with a larger group.
  • Wiolczix – 9/10. Lumina Park – Botanical Journey in Poznan is a truly impressive illumination. The travel theme only increases my rating and overall impression. The figures are really large, what can be clearly seen in our photos. For younger and shorter children, walking between giant figures must be incredibly fun. It’s nice that among the elements from all over the world there are also Polish accents – the Poznan billy goat, the Lajkonik and shepherd’s axe. But definitely the coolest thing is that Lumina Park was created in the Dendrological Garden. Usually, gardens of lights don’t have that many trees. Here are a lot of them and they are really well used. My favorite moment while visiting is when I walk along the picturesque, colorful path marked by light. Or when strings of lights hang from tree branches. It’s a bit wonderful and a bit psychedelic. Last but not least: music! Which is an absolute added value. I would really like to see Lumina Park in other cities for comparison.
