House of Arts
The House of Arts in Piešťany was built as the first purpose-built building outside of Bratislava after World War II. It is designed by the architect Ferdinand Milucky, who was among other things responsible for the modification and reconstruction of the Main Square and Castle Hill in Bratislava. It can swagger with one of the biggest auditoriums in Slovakia (over 600 seats) and the interior has recently been enhanced with new projection technology.
