Atlas Obscura Prírodná Galéria Šrot Park (Scrap Park Nature Gallery)

Scrap Park is a unique outdoor gallery located in city woods near Devínska Nová Ves, a borough of Bratislava. In this open-air gallery designed by artist Branislav Pokorný, you can admire figures of life-size animals or fairy-tale creatures. All of them are made from old scrap metal, nuts, screws, valves, and more.

Pokorný started creating these scrap sculptures for his own pleasure. Many of them are animals native to Slovakia, but some are more exotic even fantastical. The park opened in November 2019, and Pokorný is constantly expanding the gallery. You can see an eagle landing in a nest made of waste wood, a coachman riding his horse, a wolf chasing a hare, or a badger with an inconspicuously dug hole.
