GUIDED TOUR - Forest park (Horský park) - IN ENGLISH


Forest park – the lungs of our city

Did you know that in the heart of Bratislava there is a Forest city park (Horský park)? It'll take you only a few minutes to get from the buzz of the city into the peace of the forest. It is a perfect place for walks or sports with a fascinating history.

  • Walking boots advised
  • Family friendly tour
  • Dogs are welcome


More than 150 years ago, on the initiative of the townsman Henry Justi, the Prešporok Beautification Association (Bratislavský okrášľovací spolok) was established whose members were well aware of the need for green spaces in the city. Justi persuaded the city council to buy the forest, and in cooperation with the Beautification Association, the city created a public park which was easily accessible from the city centre.

The Forest park is located in the city center, in the Old Town. Nevertheless, it has retained the character of a forest with an almost untouched environment. It is included in the category of "protected area" in the 4th level of protection. Thanks to its size and variety, we can easily call it the lungs of the Old Town.

During the tour we will move in the largest educational and recreational part of the park where we will see and talk about monuments, benches attached to important personalities and other interesting facts.

Did you know, for example, that there is a commemorative plaque about W. A. ​​Mozart's stay in the Forest Park Gallery?


The walking tour contains the following stops:

  • Memorial to the victims of the World War I
  • Church of Virgin Mary of the Snow
  • Henrich Justi Memorial
  • Forester´s lodge (Horáreň)
  • Mountain Park Gallery
  • Lourdes Cave (a copy of the cave in Lourdes)


After the walk you can see the entire Mountain Park Gallery with works of Slovak sculptures of the 20th and 21st century. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee at the 130-year-old historical forester´s lodge and visit the garden with a playground and a rope town, or a mini zoo.
