One of the most romantic modern art museums in Europe – the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum – is located fewer than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič.
Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Kesserü, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists.
The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures.
The unique location bordering on three countries, and a sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube give the visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year.
The adjoining sculpture park exhibits the works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean-Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher.
A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum has become a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites.
See you at the Danubiana, friends.
