Bratislava: park Sad Janka Kráľa extensive revitalisation goes on


City of Bratislava is to renovate a vacant building which has been abandoned for years and will rebuild it into a new and modern eating place.

At the beginning of this year, the City obtained an exclusive ownership of the building and now it will take part of a big revitalisation of this part of Danube bank. During 2021, the city has restored public toilets, older trees in the park have been professionally treated and obsolete furniture has been restored to equip the park with everything a modern 21st century park should have, reports Slovak Spectator.

Mayor of Bratislava Matúš Vallo stated on this matter: “Sad Janka Kráľa is one of the oldest central European parks and is one of the city’s protected monuments. Thanks to the new services that will be added in the former building of the night salon, people will be able to spend an even more comfortable time in the park.”

Furthermore, the City will equip the building with a bistro and restaurant and cultural events will be organised in the park thanks to Bratislava Cultural and Information Centre (BKIS).
