Modra Ceramics Museum, Slovakia
Apr 2017
We were told that Modra is famous for two things – wine making and ceramic art. We landed in Modra riding a bus from Bratislava. We did not know how to get to the winery or to the ceramic museum. As luck would have it, we met a local man, Branko Bartos in a restaurant, who helped us order our food, since the owner could not speak English. In chatting with Branko, we came to know that he was born and brought up in Modra with a few years’ stint in the US. It was his day off and he offered to take us around. He knew EVERYONE in Modra. If not for Branko, we would not know how to get around since there are no English signs anywhere. He took us to the ceramics museum. The art work by the craftsman, Ignác Bizmayer must be seen to be believed. The museum does not charge any entry fee. (In other European museums you pay a minimum of 12 Euros per person !!!). The exhibits are laid out in a silo like building and depict the village life and nativity scenes. The colours were captivating and the attention to detail was simply amazing. In an adjacent building, there are more contemporary pieces which are equally amazing. This is a must see in Modra. We were so impressed with Branko that we took his contact details in case someone else needs a guide around Modra. His email id is brankogranko@yahoo.com and his cell phone number is 00421 (0) 903 549 058. While Branko does not do this for a living, he is good at it and we asked for his permission to put these details for anyone else who may need help in Modra.

I enjoy walking through the ceramic museum, browsing their displays and see how things are made. It's interesting enough if you're in the area but not worth for a trip on itself.

We recently visited here in a stop-off as part of our private tour of the Carpathian countryside. We found it very interesting and the variety and beauty of the ceramics created here was excellent.
