BRATISLAVA. Slovak National Museum (SNM) – The Historical Museum presented a new exhibition project Romans and Slovakia to the media on Friday. It is installed in the Knights’ Hall of Bratislava Castle.
You will see more than 240 objects at the archaeological-historical exhibition on the history of Slovakia in the 1st to 4th centuries, when it was located in the vicinity of the Roman Empire and a small part of it.
They leave mass finds, mass treasures of coins, as well as rare sets of items from the so-called princely tombs 5 and 6 from Zohor, which point to the results of archaeological and historical research of the Roman period in Slovakia in recent decades.
“12 authors take part in the exhibition and we have lent objects from up to 16 institutions, two of them foreign,” said the exhibition’s commissioner Juraj Kucharík from the SNM – Historical Museum.
According to Kucharík, the exhibition, divided into five basic units “from the arrival of the Romans to their expulsion”, will also impress with its artistic and architectural solutions.
Showcases in the form of moving red boxes symbolize the movement of the Romans through the individual territories and their arrival on the middle Danube.
“The authors of the solution were inspired by the move of the Romans along the Danube, or by a well-known winged sentence – all roads lead to Rome,” added the exhibition commissioner, who symbolically opened them on the scheduled date on Friday 3 December.
“It will also attract families with children, we are preparing special educational programs for it, including an interactive book for children,” Kucharík added to the exhibition, which will be accompanied by a narrative 240-page catalog.
Under the exhibition project Romans and Slovakia, the authors of the SNM staff, the Museum of the City of Bratislava, the Archaeological Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, the Danube Museum in Komárno and the Municipal Institute for the Protection of Monuments in Bratislava signed.
It was established on the occasion of the commemoration of the 2000th anniversary of the Kingdom of Vanni and the successful nomination of Slovak cities to the UNESCO list within the inscription Danube Limes – western part.
The exhibition will run until June 30, 2022. “As soon as it will be possible to have all the events, it will also talk about the accompanying events,” Kucharík concluded.
