The Embankment of the city channel

The city channel was established after the demolition of the fortifications of the city, having heaped the moat. The length of the channel is 3,2 km. The plantations by the coasts of the river were made step by step. The plantation works continued in 1863 - 1879, guided by gardener Reims.

In the year 1887, near the National opera the Nimfa fountain, the work of August Folcs, was opened. In the 30th of the 20th century the flowerbeds were built on the embankment. In the year 2000th the city council has landscaped the territory near the channel.
