SK, Bratislava: Waterworks Garden and the Waterworks Museum

Published: 24.8.2016
We continue in our walks through green spots of Bratislava even today. We will visit only recently opened Waterworks Garden. The garden is located nearby the Danube River in Karlova Ves city borrough.

The oasis of entertainment and peace is less than 10 minutes drive by car, tram ride or bus ride from the city center. There, children and grown-ups alike are going to have fun. The garden is bounded by the Devinska Road from the one side and by the Karloveske river-arm (unique bay on the Danube) from the other. We certainly recommend you to visit this place.

We haven’t mentioned the Waterworks Museum on purpose. It is situated in a renovated building near the garden. There is an exhibition on the circulation of water, moreover it captures the history of drinking water supplying in the Bratislava territory. Also, you can touch tools linked to the water industry. A part of the pipeline from Versailles from the times of King Louis XIV is probably the biggest rarity there. Once in the museum, you can take a short tour to Sihot island on the river. Since 1886, it has been one of the major drinking water sources. According to lab tests, local water is of high quality not just within the region of Bratislava but entire Slovakia.

The Waterworks Museum is situated in a late-19th century building. Its exterior and interior make it one of the gems of the capital.
