From medieval marketplaces to modern department stores. A talk about Bratislava with guide Monika Štefunková.

Thanks to its location at the crossroads of trade routes, Bratislava was destined to become an important centre of commerce from time immemorial. The marketplaces were not only an abundant source of wealth for the city, but also a meeting place for different nationalities and cultures. Perhaps that is why they are still so popular with the city’s inhabitants, a fact that has not been changed by the phenomenon of department stores, which appeared in Bratislava less than 100 years ago. Together we will take a look at where and what kind of markets have been held in the city over the centuries, what was sold at them, where the first department store in the city was located, or which department store had the first escalators in Slovakia.

MONIKA ŠTEFUNKOVÁ

A native of Bratislava, she graduated from the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Comenius University. Since finishing her studies she has been working at the Tourist Information Centre in Bratislava. Currently she is also a member of the Supervisory Board of the Association of Information Centres of Slovakia. In 2021, she successfully completed the Tourism Guide course organized by the Bratislava Cultural and Information Centre and since then she has been an active guide of the Rande s města (Rendezvous with the City) self-guided walks. She focuses on the history, art and architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries and on Bratislava’s urban districts.

The event was supported by the Fund for the Promotion of Arts from public funds.
