The story of the rediscovery of the Malý Dunaj (Little Danube) river in Zálesie. Multi-year project gradually step by step transforms neglected river embankment into live village promenade. Space enables walks in nature, local fauna and flora discovery, offers rest for rafters, tourists, cyclists and locals. Korzo Zálesie should gradually become place where one can meet neighbours while enjoying a coffee or baked fish, dance or listen to music in the amphitheatre over the weekend. Experience educational courses for schools directly in nature during the week or lectures on various topics in the evening. Spot, where rafters can embark or disembark, re-charge energy and supplies or rent a boat. Port, where citizens of Zalesie can anchor their ships year-round. The destination for the cyclists either from Vrakuňa, Malinovo or Sv.Jur. Place for service or re-charge of electric bike. Safe and calming path for residents of remote part of the village called “Domky”, who up to now had to use rather dangerous third class road.
Opportunity for Zálesie to become something other than a lucrative dormitory near Bratislava. The possibility for the municipality to determine topics in the discussion on the use of the phenomenon of the Bratislava region, the phenomenon of the Little Danube.
Our dream has come true for the most part. However, there are still many plans waiting to be implemented, which we want to implement in the Korzo Zálesie Cultural and Ecological Center.
ENTRANCE OBJECT – INFOCENTER – CULTURAL-ECOLOGICAL CENTER
For the needs of the implementation of the initial plans for the creation of a full-fledged cultural and ecological center at the Little Danube, in addition to the exterior spaces, it is also necessary to complete the entrance building fulfilling the function of the heart of the entire space. A temporary object, consisting of mobile cells of a uniform design, harmonizing with the surrounding environment. The cells are laid on footings and connected to all networks of technical infrastructure – water supply, cesspool, electricity. Heating is designed as electric. In the future, self-sufficient from renewable sources.
We managed to raise funds to build the 1st floor of the Cultural and Ecological Center, consisting of 4 cells – 1 bathroom, 1 warehouse and 2 mobile cells form the 1st stage of the Cultural and Ecological Center.
The 1st floor of the Cultural and Ecological Center consists of – 4 cells of the clubhouse.
