Bratislava’s Cvernovka to hold open house

It will be open for visitors between 10 and 20:00 on Friday, organisers wrote on their Facebook page.

“Local artists and residents of Cvernovka will show where they work and where they live, and will be providing refreshments,” the organisers invite visitors to see inner the space of Cvernovka at Paričkova Street. “In addition many attractions are prepared, including a 3D printer.

The visitors can look forward to concerts, an art gallery, a kids’ corner and a terrace with a garden, the TASR newswire wrote. At 17:00 there will be a launching of a book about Cvernovka at the ‘Bavlna’ workshop.

Cvernovka used to be one of the largest manufacturers of its kind in Europe. Between 1903-2003 cotton was processed there and exported all over the world. Currently it’s one of the few remnants of Bratislava’s industrial past, and is a favourite location for painters, architects, photographers and other artists and companies who have found their residence inside.

Organisers warn that the area is not wheelchair accessible, but if necessary it is possible to use a freight elevator.
