The parliament building will now become part of the Google Cultural Institute website in the coming weeks. Together with the Bratislava Castle, they will join other widely-known places, like Versailles or the White House, which enable people to view their rooms and art online, via digital exhibition, the TASR newswire reported.

Those choosing the Slovak parliament will be able to see also works of art exhibited in the building’s interior.

“The collection of seven wood plates of oil paintings from famous Slovak artist Albín Brunovský, which dominate the foyer in front of the assembly hall, will be scanned with a special HD technology,” the press department of the Parliament’s Office informed the TASR newswire.

The public will also be able to see several unique collections of wood reliefs hung in the halls close to parliamentary committees, which are usually closed to visitors.

It will also be possible to see panoramic pictures of representative rooms of the Bratislava Castle.

“Domestic and foreign users will thus be able to enjoy the tour of this part of the Bratislava Castle which is usually not open to the public,” the communication department continued, as quoted by TASR.

The rooms, which are usually used for events organised by top constitutional representatives, are interesting for their gold stucco decorations and its furnishing in Teresian style.
