Nedbalka Gallery is situated on a street, which belongs to the oldest ones in Bratislava, built on
old city walls from the 13th to the 15th centuries. The tortuous street connects Laurinská and Uršulínska
Streets. In terms of architecture and history, it was one of the most interesting streets of the historical
core of the Old Town, even in the early twentieth century.
The Gallery is among the most beautiful buildings of its type in Slovakia. The extension, designed by renowned architects,
Viktória Cvengrošová and Virgil Droppa, has been awarded a prestigious Dušan Jurkovič Award. In 2012, a complete
reconstruction has been carried out based on plans of Ing. arch. Jarmila Kusá.
