A park in Červená Voda village in the county of Sabinov has the shape of Slovakia. The village used a free space behind the local authority building.

The land has an incline similar to Slovakia. The inclined part is northern Slovakia, the Tatra Mountains and Prešov surrounding it. The borderline is depicted by a box tree. The regions are marked with black parts. The regional towns are located in their actual area and marked with stones and names. Paths represent the highways.

“Though the highway between Bratislava and Košice has not been built yet, we have it in Červená Voda,” said Pavol Džačovský, mayor of Červená Voda, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

River and tunnels

There are other symbols. The crossing from Slovakia to Poland is barrier-free but when crossing the border to Ukraine there are stairs, because it is more complicated to get there.

Váh, the longest river in Slovakia, is depicted by a stream that starts in the Tatras and flows to the south – the Danube river. There is a gazebo at the site of Červená Voda. The longest tunnel in Slovakia, Branisko, and the Višňové tunnel under construction, are depicted with a pergola.

The park is visited by tourists who head to the neighbouring village of Ľutina or to Lysá Hill.

“Czechs also come here. I even presented the park to a group of Swiss tourists and to pupils of the Prešov school,” Džačovský said, as quoted by TASR.
