ANGLE OF REFLECTION

Weekend Reflections

Petrzalka is the largest and densest district
in Bratislava,also it is the largest housing
development in central Europe.

However, today there is not only vast greenery
but also several interesting natural sights located

just among houses or nearby.



This channel stretches across Petrzalka from north to south where it turns to its southeastern part; it is remaining of former creek of the Danube which used to flow through this area. The creek is renowned with lots of greenery, thus it is a picturesque oasis in Petrzalka with rich flora and fauna – mostly there are many different fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians



Sporadically on its surface appear water lilies and you can admire it in summer months. Next to the Croatian Arm there are several pathways where you can take a walk, ride a bike or roller skate. The arm is somewhat of Petrzalka’s artery and it is well-accessible from many main roads or streets










Or you can get there if you turn at international bike trail along the Danube dam at southeast of Petrzalka






Petrzalka is the best example that even in a densely populated area a harmony of city and nature is possible.

  10. It's wonderful to see that the city planners created an oasis for all to enjoy even though the area is so densely populated. It makes such a big difference to how one feels living in the city when they can relax and see wild life nearby.Your reflection photos are very pretty too.
