We have become a proud partner of the Slovak National Gallery
At the beginning of the year, Tatra banka became the general partner of the Slovak National Gallery, reinforcing its position as a long-term patron of the arts.
The cooperation will be aimed at the support of various activities of the Slovak National Gallery and will enable the gallery to continue the tradition of a free entry. Entry to exhibitions in Bratislava will be free for all visitors also in 2017.
“We believe that only clever and educated people can cultivate our society and as a company wish to be a respectable part of such society. It is thus an honor for us to support artistic institutions such as the Slovak National Gallery, which not only preserve and present these values, but also provide artistic education. We believe that our support will contribute to the development of cultural, social and educational activities and in particular to a growing satisfaction of visitors,” said Michal Liday, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO, Tatra banka, about the new cooperation.
