Languages of publication
On the 11th of October, 2005, at the National Library in Warsaw, an exhibition was opened: “Polish-Ukrainian research of residential building. Stage 1 – Podhorce”. This exhibition, organized by the National Center for Research and Documentation of Historic Sites, is the result of research and inventory work carried out in the summer of 2004 by specialists from Poland and Ukraine, on the grounds of the palace/garden in Podhorce, in Ukraine. The basis of the cooperation of the two countries in the research of shared cultural heritage lies in an agreement signed by the National Center for Research and Documentation of Historic Sites and the State Services for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of Ukraine, the Lviv State Administrative District and the Polytechnic of Lvov. Podhorce is the first stage in the realization of the Polish-Ukrainian program. The exhibit is comprised of 26 display boards, one which various aspects of the research, carried out on the property of the residence, are presented. The exposition is accompanied by a scale model of the layout of Podhorce. The results of interdisciplinary research and analysis were systemized into three main thematic blocks. The first part of the exhibit, “History of the palace/ garden layout” acquaints viewers with the history of Podhorce. The second part, “Existing state”, is based on the photographic documentation done in 2004 and shows the important role of greenery areas in the spatial arrangement of the residence. The third part, “Inventory, research, analysis”, presents the results of research that includes the issues of architecture, landscape architecture and garden archeology. The opening of the exhibition met with great interest. Those who have declared an interest in further cooperation include Ewenika Linjowa, deputy director of the State Services for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of Ukraine in the Ministry of Culture and the Arts in Ukraine, and Jacek Rulewicz, director of the National Center for Research and Documentation of Historic Sites.
