Slovak National Gallery

The Slovak National Gallery has been based here since 1950. The gallery has a collection of Slovak creative art from the 13th century up until the present day and examples of European art from the 15th to the 18th century.


The original building was built from 1759 to 1763 as a four winged barracks. When the quaiside was renovated in 1940 the front wing was demolished and during reconstruction of the building from 1971 to 1977 a new modern front wing was built.


In the original Maritime barracks on the 5th of June 1918, there was a mutiny of 307 members of the defence guard. On the 12th of June 1918 two of the mutineers, Jan Skapik and Martin Jursa were executed in Bratislava Castle. Both of them were buried in the Slavice Udolie cemetery.
