Palffy Palace

This palace was built in the middle of the 19th century by Count Jan Pálffy, who was then Bratislava’s highest official. Today the building serves as one of the buildings of Bratislava City Gallery

Pálffy Palace offers visitors permanent exhibitions and temporary exhibitions, which can be discovered all year round on three floors and in the basement of the building. It is a place where the oldest history of the place, current research and current topics in the art world meet.

The courtyard of the palace can be visited individually and for free, it is a pleasant place to relax in the streets of the city. The reception at the entrance offers interested parties a current offer of book and magazine publications with a focus on current art events.

Gothic panel painting and sculpture

Even if not all the works testify to the form of Gothic and early Renaissance art in our country, they represent the oldest collection items in the collections of the city gallery. Above all, let us mention in particular the statue of the Vajnorská Madonna and Child – a carving from oak wood, which was probably created in the Regensburg workshop (Regensburg, eastern Bavaria), possibly as early as the end of the 13th century.

BIATEC. Celtic Mint

The idea of creating a permanent exhibition of Celtic coinage arose immediately after the completion of the archaeological research that took place in the Pálffy Palace and brought an important discovery. These are finds confirming the activity of the Celtic mint, which was located in these places.

New BIATEC exhibition. Celtic Mint, presents local cultural heritage through visual stories. The connection of the architectural solution of a relatively small space with modern digital technologies brings visitors rich content in interactive processing.

Matej Krén: Passage

The “Passage” project represents a symbolic “shortcut across the worlds” in which we exist or reside: through the factual, real world, into the world of human culture, where reality is mistaken for another reality – virtual – for the reality of a word, text, sign, symbol, image and then back. Site-specific installation made of mirrors and approximately twelve thousand books removed from libraries.
