Vydrica symbolizes the link between the past and the future of the city – in the most valued space under the castle, and in contact with the Danube. Bratislava was formed over a long period of time, and Vydrica has always been an integral part of it. After its revival, it will rejoin the divided historical centre of Bratislava. Vydrica has long been the missing link in the city structure, the main hub which – when completed – will open up the huge potential of the whole of central Bratislava.
The main unifying element will be the fully utilized public space. The creation and linking of the pedestrian area with Vydrica will open up the possibility for the continuous interconnection of all the historical parts of the city, thereby reviving the concept of the large Bratislava promenade – the social quality of which still resonates in Bratislava. The public area solution will bring a new standard of shared urban space and experience space.
