Danubiana Gallery Guide Tour

One of the youngest museums of modern art in Europe – Danubiana – took place.

Meulensteen. The framework of its impressive architecture is formed by its unusual location on the borders of three neighboring countries, Slovakia, Austria, and Hungary, but above all by the superb contrast of the wide expanse of water, open-air, and the endless banks of a dam. This architecture evokes the shape of a Roman galley bound in the shallows of a river and its diversity provides the opportunity to put on a wide variety of exhibitions.
