Jubilee Garden near Liptovské Revúce

The linden tree garden is situated near the mouth of the Teplá Valley, near the town of Liptovské Revúce, approximately 19 km from the centre of Ružomberok.

It was planted by the foresters from the forest-sector governance office in Liptovské Revúce in October of 1928, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic. There is a forester’s house near the garden still today.

The garden has a square shape with mostly pine and larch trees planted along its perimeter. In the centre of the garden, there used to be a stone memorial inscribed with the year of 1928. However, it was destroyed during the battles of the Slovak National Uprising. At that time, artillerymen of the uprising were positioned here and they were fired at by the German air force.

In 1928, jubilee gardens were planted all over the Czechoslovak territory on the basis of an ordinance by the General Directorate of State Forests in Prague.

In the vicinity of the garden, there is also a small wooden chapel.
