Slovak National Gallery

The mission of the Slovak National Gallery (SNG), which was founded in 1948, is not only to collect and preserve art, but also to look for ways to provide access to it, to educate and inspire. The gallery in Bratislava consists of a complex of buildings.

The central building was originally a four-wing baroque residence on the Danube embankment (hence its name: the Water Barracks) built in 1759-1763 (designed by architects G.B. Martinelli and F.A. Hillebrandt). It was later reconstructed and an extension was built (1969-1977; designed by architect V. Dedecek) to meet new requirements.

Right now, an extensive reconstruction of the SNG premises in Bratislava is in progress; however, you can still enjoy temporary exhibitions and experimental expositions at the neo-renaissance Esterházy Palace – currently, the SNG’s only gallery space. And while you’re there, don’t forget to visit our Ex Libris bookshop.

SNG Bratislava in 2021 is admission free!
