Pálffy Palace

The Palace was built in the middle of the 19th century by Count Jan Pálffy who was later the highest official of Bratislava. During the most recent reconstruction, archaeologists uncovered the remains of a Gothic 13th-century house with a 14th-century tower, however, the most significant find consisted of casting moulds from the Celtic period of settlement, proving the existence of a Celtic mint in the town.

At present, the palace houses the Bratislava City Gallery's collections of Gothic paintings on glass, pictures from the Dutch and Flemish masters of the 17th and 18th centuries and works by Italian masters from the 17th and 19th centuries. Part of the premises is also devoted to temporary exhibitions.
