Inside you’ll find original advertisements from early 1900s companies, extravagant pieces of art and rooms decorated to mimic their original style when the building was used as the old town hall. There’s also a tower to climb offering terrific views of the city.
The Bratislava Castle
The Bratislava Castle dates back to the Middle Ages and now houses more than 250,000 artifacts and works of art. Exhibits contain numismatics, ethnography, paintings, sculptures, historical pieces and galleries detailing the growing economy of the region. The collections are enough to take up an entire day.
Danubiana is one of the newest museums in the city and showcases hundreds of works of modern art. You have to catch a boat to reach it as it’s located on a tiny island, but the collection of paintings, sculptures and photography are some of the best Slovakia has to offer.
