Celts from Bratislava
More then 2000 years ago a Celtic oppidum (city) was built on the same place where is now Bratislava. It was larger, than the middle-age city. There are many archaeological findings from this era, from objects to remains of buildings. The Celts brought innovation to the region, from buildings similar to Roman architecture, through ceramics kickwheel to coins production.
All this can be seen in the exhibition, visible in the Museum of History, a part of the Slovak National Museum, which resides on the Bratislava castle. Besides objects the visitors can see the remainings of old buildings from the 1st century BC. They are located below the courtyard of the castle.
The exhibition shows a new history interpretation of of the Danube’s region and is organised in partnership with the italian city Perugia.
