Between WW2 decimating the Jewish population of Bratislava, and the Communists destroying the Jewish Quarter to build the UFO Bridge in the 1960's, very little authentic Jewish Slovakian history remains.

Located on Zidovska Street on the edge of the Old Town and near the steep approaches to the Castle, one may easily miss this undistinguished mansion housing the Jewish Culture Museum as it is marked only by a small sign on the wall, probably to...More

I love this museum. There is an interesting, (poynts=interesting from jidish), museum. The jewish culture is very nice, magic, but little bit sad too. In this museum are very nice thinks, an there is very nice exposition too. I recommend you, to visit this museum.
