Under the Tatras a unique place has arisen, perfect for escaping from the rush of the city. The project Krásne Sady will support people living in harmony with nature and provide accessibility to healthy and quality food, Dobré Noviny reported.

Krásne Sady spreads over about 100 hectares that is part of Mlynica village. Each estate consists of minimum one hectare, as seen on the web portal of the project, Dobré Noviny reported.

“This area is big enough to enable owners to have a house as well as garden, small lake or little forest,” write the authors of the project on the website, as cited by Dobré Noviny.

One of the conditions of Krásne Sady is that when building houses, landowners should use natural materials. Houses will preferably be built from clay, straw or wood.

Also in the plans is for 100,000 trees and bushes to be planted in the area.

“We have already planted 10,000 trees and bushes since last year,” Marcela Nováková, PR Manager of Krásne Sady project said.

Houses are meant to be mainly permanent residences, not recreational cottages, however there are nine estates dedicated to recreational purposes. The aim of the project is to live closer to nature in alternative ways, Dobré Noviny wrote.

“Krásne Sady is a project for everyone who thinks forward – about the future of our kind and about the future of our planet,” says the website, as quoted by Dobré Noviny.
