The history of nazi rockets in the heart of the Historical Park

Historical Park in Blizna

The village's location amidst forests significantly impacted its history. During World War II, Germans designated it as a new rocket research centre Heidelager, following the bombing of the centre in Peenemünde on the island of Usedom by the allied forces. The rocket testing site has been commemorated in the form of a Historical Park. Although it does not encompass all remnants – launch pads and ramps, remains of craters from explosions, and a service tower are scattered throughout the village – it features models of V-1 and V-2 rockets, a collection of aerial bombs and selected modern military vehicles, as well as an Antonov An-2 airplane. The park is closed only on Mondays and selected public holidays.
