... when we went to Bratislava last weekend, we were lucky enough to be shown around by lovely theatre writer and critic Anna Grusková. That was amazing, and Anna, who is a real darling, gave us precious insight into the lovely city that is Bratislava.

When we took our afternoon coffee outside a newly opened shopping mall with adjacent cafés overlooking the river Danube, Anna told us about the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Foundation nearby.

The museum building is actually like a ship standing on a peninsula surrounded by the river delta, I didn't have the chance to go there (car, hello!?) - but I find the images amazing and "appetizing".

A little surprisingly maybe, the Dutch art collector Gerard H. Meulensteen picked Bratislava as the place where he would initiate an art foundation and exhibit his collection, which includes works by Sam Francis, Karel Appel, Wallace Thing, Pierre Alechinsky, Christo, and Magdalena Abakanowicz.

How good to know, that ParisVienne is so close to such an interesting art institution. And come to think of it, taking a closer look at the Slovak fashion scene may also be a good idea, one day or the other...
