The tower of the Franciscan monastery in Bratislava was completely restored in the last decade of the 19th century under the supervision of Frigyes Schulek. It was first disassembled and then reconstructed. A garden pavilion was built in the Aupark (today Janko Kráľ Park) using the old stones. But there is an important difference between the tower of the monastery and the pavilion: while the aforementioned has a pointed, pyramid-like spire, the latter’s termination is curved and dome-shaped. This article also discusses the events of the reconstruction, focusing mainly on the actual dismantling and construction works. The reconstruction of the Franciscan tower indicates a changing of principles in monument preservation: it is a more or less accurate copy of the unsustainable original.
