Bratislava will become greener in the following years. Its 10,000-tree initiative should help systematically renew greenery and keep it sustainable in the Slovak capital. The city council led by Mayor Matúš Vallo, who took office at the end of 2018, believes that the city needs more trees and bushes in parks as well as in the streets.
“In summer, trees protect our city from overheating, improve the air quality, mitigate the effects of torrential rains and provide a refuge for animals and important insects,” said Bratislava Mayor Matúš Vallo as cited in the press release. “Streets with trees are more beautiful and we simply feel more comfortable on them. Greenery is one of our priorities.”
