The Danube River divides Bratislava into two parts. And in addition to being the natural border between Slovakia and Austria, and Slovakia and Hungary, it is the living thread that unites all of the countries it passes through. Along with the Rhine River it comprises an alliance of the two most powerful bodies of water in Europe. The Danube, Danubius in Latin, also lends its name to the Danubiana Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum. The Danubiana was built on an intriguing piece of land, the place where Slovakia – Hungary – Austria are closest to each other. The river is calm here as it fills the Čunovo Reservoir. It is only 20 minutes from Bratislava, less than an hour from Vienna and less than two hours from Budapest.

The idea behind the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, was forged from the energy of two people which attracted the efforts of dozens, hundreds and thousands of others – architects, builders, engineers, designers, painters, sculptors, musicians, art historians, printers, graphic artists... This energy now rises up as an invisible spiritual geyser which can be felt by every single visitor to this unique place.
