Nedbalka is my favorite gallery in Bratislava and that is because of two main reasons: content and presentation. Let me talk about content first. The exhibitions in most of the galleries are placed according to art style or the period of time when the art was created, but the foreign and domestic artists are mixed together.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely do not care about the nationality of the artists, I appreciated them all. However, if you don’t have much time and you are specifically interested in Slovak modern art, this gallery is still for you. The paintings and sculptures of the most influential Slovak artist of the 19th and 20th centuries are on display here.
The second reason for my love for Nedbalka is the architecture. The gallery consists of four floors of circular art displays, and on the fifth floor there is a coffee place. Your ticket includes a coffee or tea in the coffee shop, so I recommend you give it a try.
In the middle of the gallery there is an open space from the ground floor to the roof so you can see all of the floors up and below. It is so beautiful and mesmerizing it is almost like an optical illusion. In front of the gallery is an installation of umbrellas at the moment, so it should be easy to find and it is also a great Instagram moment, let’s be honest.
