Slovak National Gallery was established in the premises of the former building of the town police on Danube embankment and it is also called the Water barracks today. Modernization and building extension was performed during the years 1969 – 1977, which caused creation of a scarce architectonic creation on the embankment of the Danube – old building was joined by steel construction of bypass in the spirit of rational functionalism.
