Bratislava is also a city of music. Plus: galleries and museums.

Pure culture in the “Beauty on the Danube” 


  1. 1

    The National Theatre

    Of course the historical theatre - the opera house by the famous Viennese architects Fellner and Helmer with the Ganymed fountain in front of it - is the first thing to catch the eye; the modern version is a little further away. The programme is extremely broad and can easily compete with Vienna. A Fellner and Helmer building can be recognised at a glance all over the world: the stars amongst the architects of the time built all the important theatres and opera houses in Central Europe. Plus the hippest “grand hotels” of the Belle Epoque.

    Gallery Nedbelka

    The Gallery of Slovakian Modern Art - this gallery in Bratislava has an air of a Guggenheim Museum. What an interior! From outside the gallery appears almost inconspicuous with its classicist façade - but inside modern architecture dominates with a touch of the NYC Guggenheim Museum.

    City Gallery in Palais Pálffy

    The illusion of an infinite expanse filled only with books: this is what the “Passage” installation in the city gallery in the historic Palais Pálffy in the historic heart of the city conveys. Internationally acclaimed!
