Zielona Góra town, a seat of the voivodship seymik, is home to 120,000 inhabitants. The city is renowned for vine planted here since the 13th century. The city centre with its 18th and 19th century houses was thoroughly renovated. The most characteristic construction is the old town hall (16th c.), later many times remodelled. Near the town hall there is a late Gothic Tower of Hunger as well as a parish church from the same epoch. The Nysa Łużycka River defines the border with Germany and crosses the town of Gubin on its way. The town centre is situated on the Polish side of the river. To the south-east, in the village of Brody, stands a three-story 17th century palace, today turned into elegant hotel. Further south, the old princely town of Żagań has an interesting Baroque palace. Occupying both banks of River Nysa Łużycka in the vicinity of Łęknica, the Mużakowski Park has been entered onto The World’s Cultural Heritage List as an example of the 19th century European art of gardening. It has a form of an English landscape arrangement and includes roads, forests, meadows, hills, lakes and rivers.
