Brno, a city of many high-quality examples of modern movement architecture, boasts one of the iconic works of the period: the Tugendhat House by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The exceptional importance of this building rests not only in its often analysed aesthetic and historic assets, but also in its relatively well-preserved original state of the layout and surfaces in general. From this standpoint, Tugendhat House is one of the most authentic works by Mies van der Rohe in Europe. Source


In the life of Emil BelluŠ - one of the most prominent modernist architects in Slovakia - there was a bit mysterious, little-known phase. It concerned his stage setting designs of the late 1930s and early 1940s. In collaboration with a theatre director Ján Jamnický, in the new Slovak National Theatre BelluŠ managed to create several remarkable settings thanks to which he is considered a founder of Slovak scenography.

Alongside more prominent personalities, the interwar architectural scene in Slovakia was no less shaped by thus far scarcely recognized names. Architect Desider Quastler belongs among them. After almost two decades of endeavour as a successful architect, he left behind an extraordinary scope of work, some of which is an integral part of the image of present-day Bratislava. Source

In the first half of the 1990s, Bratislava has been obscured by booming capitals of neighbouring post-communist countries. The situation though has started to change rapidly after the parliamentary elections of 1998. Launching a number of social and economic reforms, it culminated in the accession of Slovakia to the European Union in 2004 and subsequently to the Shengen Area in 2007. Expected general improvements in economic and social condition of the country, and above all the entry of foreign investment as well as the economic recovery very soon yielded payoffs in Bratislava. As the largest city and the capital of the country situated on the western state border and possessing the most advanced infrastructure, on the onset Bratislava has benefited the most from the newly formed situation. In the first decade of the 21st century, the city has undergone a tremendous construction boom. Source
