History

The date of the park’s establishment is unknown. Most likely, the original garden was arranged in the style of renaissance terraced gardens. The park was divided into three terraces that were interconnected with a path and lined with lime-tree avenues. The park, rectangular &oriented from north to south, is centrally planned. In the mid 19th century, flora was planted to augment the natural landscape. State intervention of the park in the 1950s brought a baroque influenceto the park, but it did not change the natural landscape in the growth.
