Nymphenburg — The City Of The Nymphs
The Palace complex Nymphenburg has been the perfect decoration of Munich for many centuries, history calls it the summer residence of the Bavarian monarchs. Today our eyes can see magnificent architectural Park complex with man-made canals and ponds, magnificent buildings of the Italian Baroque era, many domestic buildings, museums and fountains, lush lawns and extraordinary vegetation of the Botanical garden.
It all started as always, simply and practicaly: in the distant 70s of XVII century, during the reign of kurfyst Ferdinand, in the West of Munich in the middle of a huge field a building resembling a pavilion of round shape, surrounded by a flowered garden was laid in. It was planned by famous Italian architect Agostino barelli. This ten-year creation was intended to Henriette Adelaide of Savoy as a gift for the birth of Maximilian the second, the long-awaited firstborn and heir to the throne. Romantic wife liked gift, fascinated by its beauty, she dedicated it to the nymphs of the goddess Flora, hence the name Nymphenburg — the city of the Nymphs. Upon ascending the throne, Maximilian the second fairly tried, expanding and beautifying the residence of his dynasty. In fact, Nymphenburg stores its modern look directly from those times. Of course, future rulers, no doubt, also contributed to the transformation of his abode, but they were not significant and were only additions, bearing taste preferences of the current era and the current ruler. The last representative of the dynasty of Wittelsbach, Franz Bonaventura Adalbert Maria Bavarian lives in his ancestral estate, so part of the Palace complex is closed to prying eyes.
