Why locals love it

It is a park named after one of the most significant and most radical Slovak poets and a national activist, Janko Kráľ, who has a statue situated directly in the park. The park is one of the oldest municipal parks in Europe. Bordered by the Danube and Aupark (the biggest shopping center in Bratislava), it is very popular place.

Why you should visit it

The park was established in 1774 with an intention to create a public place. Under the influence of Baroque classicism, the paths in the park were set up in the shape of an 8-legged starfish with trees planted along them. Each alley has been named after its corresponding species of tree (alder, maple...) There is also a theatre located nearby.

Special tip

In of the corners of the park, there is a beautiful Gothic tower of the 15th century. Try to find it!
