Hidden in a small quiet street, set in a wonderfully designed garden is a gem of modernist architecture, a villa designed by an architect of Slovak origin who designed the house for himself and his family.

The early-20th cent. villa has been nicely restored. It contains little original furniture, but the structure itself is original and likeable. There was a good, well-informed guide and also an interesting temporary exhibition of young textile designers.

Lovely villa in a peaceful part of town. We enjoyed the walk there, spotting interseting architceture as we went. The villa itself is not spectacular like Villa Tugendhat, but well worth visiting

House of Slovak architect Jurkovic full of history, worth visiting if you know who he was and is his heritage.
