Why locals love it

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