The restoration of the sundial in Považská Bystrica

In every town and village, there are several historical sights, works of art and architectural works. Thanks to its uniqueness, a landmark can become not only a regional landmark, but also the symbol for local people who find it exceptional.

There is one such example in Považská Bystrica. It is the sundial whose designer is the high school teacher Juraj Bardy, and it was constructed by Eduard Škorpík in 1970.  Since that time, the sundial has been the integral part of Park mládeže (Youth Park).

Despite its high-quality construction and regular maintenance, the weather with its external effects resulted in more and more visible damage. Also the mayor of Považská Bystrica, Karol Janas expressed the need for extensive restoration and he informed the public that “The sundial is our local landmark. It would be a terrible pity if it disappeared from the park. We are negotiating its restoration with companies. For a while the sundial will be dismantled so we can renovate it. Then, we will put it back.” To read the whole article, please click here.

The employees of the KOVAL SYSTEMS, a. s., are honored that we were in charge of restoration of the important symbol of Považská Bystrica. Here are the photographs of the sundial before restoration and after the individual stages of restoration. There are also photographs of the sundial returned to its original place.
