The manor house Rusovce

Location: Bratislavský kraj, Bratislava

GPS: N48°3'4'' E17°9'1''

The architectural feature of Rusovce - the urban district of Bratislava - is the Neo-Classical manor house built in 1840 on the site of an older manor house from 1521.

The manor house acquired its attractive facade by application of the Romanticizing style of what is called the Windsor type imitating the English Gothic style. It has towers, battlements and a central risalite with terrace. In front of the manor house is the statue of a lion standing on a pillar. The manor house has got a big park. The manor is used by the folk ensemble SĽUK, which moved here in 1951.  

The Office of the Government of the Slovak Republic now administers the manor house, hence it is closed to public.
