The sensational discovery in 1933 of the perfectly preserved relics of a stronghold from the Hallstatt era (about 2 700 years old), located on a peninsula of Lake Biskupinskie, ensured the international renown of the small village of Biskupin. The excavation site and soon afterwards the first reconstructions attracted numerous tourists already in the interwar period. The number of visitors grew systematically also during the post-war period, and in 2007 reached a total of 300 000, becoming indubitably the reason for the interest in terrains adjoining the Biskupin reservation shown by assorted investors representing the gastronomic and tourist branches. The lack of current spatial development plans means that many of the foreseen investments (especially after 2004) now pose a threat to the maintenance of the historical identity of the reservation (which has been granted the status of a historical monument) and contribute to the devastation of the culturalnatural landscape of Biskupin and its environs. In response to the afore-mentioned threats the Voivodeship Conservator of Historical Monuments for the region of Kujawy and Pomerania and the Archaeological Museum in Biskupin have decided to extend protection to several score hectares of land in direct proximity of the archaeological reservation. Work is also being conducted on the establishment of the Biskupin Cultural Park, which would encompass terrains between the communes of Gasawa and Znin as well as other tourist attractions, such as the castle ruins in Wenecja and the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum.
