One of the key cultural institutions in Slovakia, the Slovak National Museum (SNM), will see a change at the post of general manager. The incumbent head, Rastislav Púdelka, asked Culture Minister Marek Maďarič to release him from the position of statutory of the SNM for health reasons as of January 31.
“The culture minister accepted his decision and thanked for his four years of work at the helm of the museum,” the ministry informed the SITA newswire. Details of the upcoming tender for the new SNM head have not been published as yet.
