DANUBIANA MEULENSTEEN ART MUSEUM
Danubiana is a museum of modern and contemporary art close to Bratislava and located on a peninsula surrounded by nature and the river Danube. It is also a place where three countries meet: Slovakia, Austria, and Hungary, giving it a very romantic ambiance where the connection between nature and art is strong. Museum visitors can enjoy beautiful artworks to one side and a magnificent view of the Danube to the other. The permanent collection of Danubiana exhibits many artworks from Slovak artists, as well as international artists from all around the world.
Danubiana is a museum of modern art that specialises in presenting the art of central Europe, from countries like the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and also many Slovak artists. Every year they also host international exhibitions of non-central European countries as well. The architecture is more minimalistic and not with a Slovak style at all; it is more neutral.
Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum was inspired by the Louisiana Museum in Denmark and the creators wanted to accomplish a similar atmosphere and connection with nature. Also, the first building of Danubiana was in the shape of a ship.
