The Rosenfeld Palace is a new centre for culture in Žilina intended to organise cultural and educational activities for the public. It was originally built in 1907 by Ignác Rosenfeld to be the headquarters of his bank and his own home. After the death of the original owners, the building passed through several hands and functions. Since 2003 it has been under the administration of the Town of Žilina and it is protected as a municipal cultural heritage monument. In 2009 the Ministry of Culture declared it a national cultural heritage monument and a renovation project began in 2015. The palace reopened in September 2016 and welcomes all the public as well as history and architecture lovers.
The main aim of the Rosenfeld Palace as a new centre for culture is to gradually present all the major personalities of the town of Žilina. It will also host performances of contemporary, jazz and classical music. There will be regular exhibitions, discussions, children’s workshops, tours of the palace and many other cultural events. The palace will also be used for representative purposes.
