Kutno The City of Roses actively supports the Gardens of the Royal Castle in garden projects. It is worth getting acquainted with the idea of ​​the city authorities and the genesis of their love for garden art.

Kutno is a medium-sized city very conveniently located in the central part of Poland. Its uniqueness is evidenced not only by its location, but by its rich rose history. It is thanks to her that Kutno has been functioning as the City of Roses for years. This was due to a return to the tradition, which is now flourishing again thanks to the activities of the City Hall and the Kutno Culture Center. Both institutions maintain the tradition and rose culture originated in Kutno at the beginning of the 20th century by the Eizyków brothers, and which has developed significantly thanks to the activities of Bolesław Wituszyński - an outstanding Polish breeder, creator of roses Kutno, Marylka and Copernicus. In Kutno, each year at the beginning of September, Rose Festival is organized, the largest rose-themed event in Poland, in 2019 its 45th edition took place. This event includes The Polish National Rose Exhibition co-organized by the Polish Rose Society, rose competitions for professionals and amateurs, the Rose Fair and the Outdoor Rose Fair. In the urban space you can admire over 60,000 rose bushes at flower beds and squares. Kutno actively promotes knowledge about roses on the national arena by participating in fairs, conferences and panels related to gardening and greenery promotion.


The event was held under the patronage of the Polish Rose Society, whose Royal Castle Gardens in Warsaw are a supporting member.

The Polish Rose Society promotes knowledge about the cultivation and history of roses and creates favorable conditions for cooperation between amateurs, scientists and nurserymen, between units and institutions. The universal beauty and history of the flower queen has magnetized people for centuries. The Polish Rose Society feels the heir to this tradition. Our direct predecessor was the Polish Society of Rose Lovers. Today, after almost twenty years of the lack of a similar institution in Poland, we can again enjoy the existence of the Polish association of people united by a common passion, wishing to co-create a rose culture and promote the love of beauty that they discovered in roses. And they rediscover this beauty all the time. PTR publishes the Roses Bulletin, organizes study trips to rose gardens in Poland and abroad, prepares lectures, lectures, trainings on knowledge of roses, organizes rose exhibitions and competitions.
