This 13th century building served many purposes, such as being the town hall as well as the see of the semi-autonomus Pressburg Administration. By Acquisition of a neighbouring building, it has grown into a complex mixing late gothic architecture with Baroque and Art Nouveau. Also, Primate?s Palace is part of the complex. The well-known tower was added in the 14th century, but it was damaged by a fire and replaced in the 18th century by today?s baroque style one. Today, the city museum is located in a medeival part of the building, while a hall for official and cultural events is located in the Primate?s Palace. A wine museum is also located in this complex.
