Bratislava’s newest major gallery opened in September 2000, at a dramatic site on a peninsula jutting out into the Danube River, about 15 kilometres south of the city centre. The Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum is named after the river that surrounds it, and its sponsor, the Dutch collector and art patron Gerard H. Meulensteen.
The gallery itself is housed in an impressive building intended to evoke the shape of a Roman galley bound in the shallows of a river. It hosts shows by leading international artists, which alternate in the great hall on the first floor; on the ground floor there is a gallery of contemporary art where the exhibits are on sale; and in the grounds is an 8,000 square-metre park where a range of sculpture work is presented.
