Bratislava (former Prešporok) was as the temporary capital of the Kingdom of Hungary since the early 17th century the most important centre of theatre in our country. In the last third of the 18th century was built the first stone theatre in Bratislava, or in Upper Hungary – Municipal Theatre in Bratislava, somewhere close to the place of today´s historical building of the Slovak National Theatre.

The Bratislava City Gallery houses a remarkable collection of works relating to both the 1776 theatre building and that of 1886 (until 1920, i.e. until the establishment of the Slovak National Theatre). It is a set of prints, paintings, drawings and statues executed in the period between the last third of the eighteenth and the first half of the twentieth century.

Attention needs be paid also to a selection of objects and reproductions of photographs and postcards relating to the former Municipal Theatre in Bratislava, which can be found in the collections of the Bratislava City Museum, the State Archive in Bratislava, and the Slovak National Gallery.
