Korzo Zálesie – Embankment revitalization of the Little Danube river for free time activities, Promenade Zálesie

Story of rediscovery of the Little Danube in Zálesie. Multi-year project gradually step by step transforms neglected river embankment into live village promenade. Space enables walks in the nature, local fauna and flora discovery, offers rest for rafters, tourists, cyclists and locals. Former dump site at the river embankment was replaced by rest area with small lookout in the form of lighthouse and wooden pier used for debarkation, promenading or picnic under canopies. Latest additions are natural amphitheater for small cultural activities with majestic view of the river in the background as well as entrance object in its first stage – cultural and information center with refreshments. Eventually everything will merge with its natural surroundings. Every single cubic meter of used wood will be replaced by planted trees.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Sensitive rehabilitation of the village promenade – the entrance area to the protected area NATURA 2000 – Malý Dunaj.
