Vice Governor's palace
Historical building of the National Council of the Slovak Republic
In the past, the Slovak National Council was located in the County house, a cultural monument, directly in the town centre. The building was rebuilt from an 18th century monastery used by Trinitarians, Catholics who believe in the divine trinity. It gained its present form on the basis of projects by Ignác Feigler, a leading architect from Bratislava. In 1992 members of parliament adopted the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Slovak Republic and also the Constitution. These two events are commemorated by a sign board on the facade of the historic building. At present, the building is mainly used as a venue for organizing a variety of conferences and events, such as negotiations of senior state officials.
