The historic building of the Slovak National Theatre has long attracted both domestic and foreign visitors not only with its theatrical history but also with its architectural value. The iconic building was constructed in an eclectic style at the end of the 19th century according to the designs of the prominent Viennese architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer.
 
We invite you to attend our regular weekend tours of the SND historic building on Hviezdoslavovo Square in Bratislava, which will allow you to peek into its innermost parts. We believe that this will satisfy many visitors who have been interested in this possibility on many occasions.
