BRATISLAVA MUNICIPAL GALLERY & THE PÁLFFY PALACE

Expositions of Bratislava's Municipal Gallery take place in one of the most exquisite jewels of Bratislava's historical architecture, the Pálffy Palace, located in the heart of the historical city centre. During reconstruction of the building (1981-1987), excavators uncovered relics of the Roman Era of the l. st. century B.C. (including celtic coins and a mass grave), as well as artifacts from the Great Moravian Era at the end of the 9th century .
From 1715, the owners of the palace were the Pálffy's, the hereditary lords of Bratislava county. Count Jan Pálffy (1829-1908) had the palace rebuilt in the second half of the 19th century in the severe late-classical style in which it appears today.
