Manor House Park

The stablishment of the park and construction of the manor house took place at the same time in the 17th century.The original French garden was turned into an English landscape garden at the turn of the 18th and 19 th century.
The area of the park was more than 39 hectares at the end of the 19th century. However, its area was reduced in the third quater of the 20th century due to the construction of the hospital and the road network. Today it is less than 30 hectares.
Three gates led to the park in the past. The Black Gate made of iron, which was connected by the tree-lined avenue to the Black Monastery, has been preserved. Above the main gate, there was a wrought-iron, later painted, Pálffy coat of arms. The White Gate was originally made from wood, and it is situated north of the manor house. It led to the park from erea of Malacky called Rádek. the smaller Red Gate, which is currently not in use, is situated south-east of the Black Gate. It led to the park from a farmstead. In addition to the gates, there were also several entrances for pedestrians.
Malina brook flowed through a small part of the park not far from the Black Gate. Today, it is hidden in a pipeline.


Apart from the manor house, the original buildings that still stand nowadays include only a gardener°s house and a concierge°s house at the Black Gate. The gardening area consisted of three small greenhouses, a large palm tree greenhouse with water jets and gardens.
There is still the lourdes cave from1934 with a statue of the Virgin Mary. Whenn the Pálffy family left, sports areas were built in the park. over the years some changes have taken place but they still exist today.
Park is open to the public, and is registered in the Central List of Cultural Monuments.
