Turkish House – Town Museum (Senec)


The most precious historical monument in the central square of Senec is the Renaissance manor house called Turkish House. It was built during the 1556 – 60 by the Governor of Bratislava region Krištof Baťán. The fortified character of the building is demonstrated by the arched gunports and semicircular attic gables, which not only decorated the building but also protected the defenders of the building. An interesting feature of the building is the corner cylindrical tower (bastion) typical for buildings from the period of the Turkish invasions.

Town Museum in Senec was built between 2007 – 2009. The grand opening of the institution took place on 28 January 2010 in the building of the Turkish House – a renaissance courtyard, standing in the middle of the square. Since October 2010, the museum has been one of the registered museums with the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic.
