Janko Kráľ Park

Local name: Sad Janka Kráľa

Janka Krala Park (Sad Janka Krala) is located on the banks of the Danube in the Petrzalka district. It is the oldest park in Bratislava. Its current appearance dates from 1839. Among the old trees, many of which are species imported from distant sides, there are extensive lawns with resting places. In the park you can see a gazebo made of part of the former Gothic tower of the Franciscan church.

The park on the Danube was founded at the end of the 18th century. In 1839, it underwent a thorough romantic reconstruction. Trees planted in then were to create "green chambers" with places of respite. This direction of greenery maintenance is visible in the park today. In addition, bushes trimmed into the shapes of zodiac signs are placed at various points.

The name Sad Janka Krala was given to the park after World War II. Commemorates the Slovak Romantic poet and national activist. His monument is also standing here. In 1897, the Gothic tower of the tower of the Franciscan Church was moved to the park, which now serves as a gazebo.
