One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less 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 Keserü Ilona, 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. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide 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 features 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 is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

There have traditionally not been many galleries of modern art in Slovakia; this one is excellent. The purpose-built building on the shores of the Danube is light and spacious and the expanse of the river, the sky and the reeds form the background for some of the artwork. There is also an art cafe and an outdoors gallery of sculpture... More

This place is a little out of the way (25 mins by taxi form the old town) but completely worth the effort. Its 8EUR to get in. The building is lovely and very large. Lots of art to see (not all of it great) both inside and outside the building. I took my time (about 90 mins in total) to... More

Get the bus from outside the Sheraton hotel. It's the road outside the shopping centre rather than the main road. It takes 30 minutes and they run at 18 mins past the hour currently. Gallery is a good way to spend a couple hours with art outside and inside. We visited in the snow and it was very quiet. 8... More

I like a bit of modern art and this gallery contains some great installations and pieces. Not only that but the location is great and makes a lovely peaceful stop for coffee or a simple lunch (the cafe has a limited menu but very tasty).

Take the #90 bus, diagonally across from the Sheraton, Eurovea Mall. There is a ticket machine; buy two 0.90 eurocent tickets, one for each way. Don't forget to validate them as you get on the bus. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery as you leave the city, ride through the pre-fab apartments section, through rural Bratislava, til the... More

Danubiana is the creation of one man passionate about Contemporary Art. He has created a sensational museum full of stunning art in a beautiful setting on an island in the Danube.

We loved this gallery, it's well worth the half hour trip from Bratislava. The location is stunning, on a spit of land in the middle of the Danube. There is a huge variety of modern art and sculpture, both inside and out, and there is something to interest everyone. A very pleasant cafe was the icing on the cake! If... More
