HISTORICKÁ ZÁHRADA NA MÝTNEJ ULICI V BRATISLAVE
Historic garden in Mýtna Street in Bratislava
Languages of publication
The study addresses the creation and early development of the ornamental garden in Mýtna Street in Bratislava. The site was originally a smaller garden on the outskirts of the Blumentál suburb (at that time), located in the vicinity of a road leading to Rača. The first stage of the garden documented in a drawing shows the main axis intersecting the centre of the courtyard and a simple symmetric composition of three fields of vegetation lined by tree alleys. Based on an analysis and comparison of written sources and plans, we assume the garden was founded in the second half of the 1770s. A re-evaluation of the name Esterházy Garden is based on reliable information from historical sources designating the archbishop’s administrator Štefan Ormosdy as the owner.
