Bratislava City Gallery, Mirbach Palace

The gallery was founded in 1961, although the first attempts to collect works of arts began in the 19th century, when the Bratislava City Museum was established. It currently contains approximately 35,000 works of art

The Bratislava City Gallery is the second largest gallery in Slovakia. Its activities are associated with permanent exhibitions of a part of the extensive visual art collection and with regular presentations of valuable pieces of visual art of Slovak and foreign origin, focusing not only on old works, such as Gothic art but also on the latest trends.

With its dramaturgic arrangement and setting in two historical buildings in the very centre of Bratislava – Mirbach Palace and Pálffy Palace- the Gallery has attracted a growing number of visitors. In addition, it organizes several inter-media activities and activities related to other art forms.

The Gallery regularly presents Slovak visual art also abroad; in last ten years it prepared a number of exhibitions in various countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, and in the USA. Thanks to its own restoration studios, it successfully preserves and restores treasures of the art heritage.
