Gubin - Theatre Island

The Polish island is located between the towns Guben and Gubin in the Neisse river and can be reached over bridges from both towns. On the island there used to be a theatre which was opened in 1874. Although the theatre survived World War II nearly without having suffered any  damage, it fell victim to arson in 1945. At the historical site you will today find the newly-built entrance gate with remains of the original columns of the former theatre. The theatre park was decorated by a little monument for Goethe’s muse Corona Schröter, who was born in Guben in  1751. A part of the monument still exists today, the bust, however, is missing. This Neisse island has become a park for pedestrians and cyclists alike, with well-kept seating and other facilities in the shadow of old trees. Along the way you find an enlarged reproduction of the wooden  sculpture of the goldfish of Vettersfelde. The original is part of a Skythian gold treasure found in 1882 in Vettersfelde near Guben, which is today in a museum in Berlin.
