Atrium under the City Tower – the past in pictures
Welcome to Atrium under the City Tower, the relaxation and cultural space. In the past, this place was situated outside the city walls. After demolition of part of the fortifications in the 19th century, the city garden, known as Népkért or Ľudový hájik (Folk Grove), was located at the site of today’s Atrium. Brezina Forest Park could be accessed up the adjacent alley of the same name.
From 1961, a summer cinema operated at the site, ceasing to exist in 1974 when the entire eastern side of Sládkovičova Street was demolished. From 2019 through 2020, the Atrium under the City Tower underwent reconstruction into its present form.
