Slovaks organize media complex

Jana Kadlecova 2009-05-25
The Slovak government has approved the construction of a new media complex in Bratislava, housing the three state-supported public media institutions.

Slovak radio (, Slovak television ( and most probably the Press Agency of the Slovak Republic TASR ( will work together under one roof.

The project will be built as a public-private partnership. The Ministry of Culture claims this will reduce the cost of the construction by 3.65%.

The new complex will be located near the Slovak National Theatre and construction should last 3 years. The private partner will run the complex for a 25-year term. The estimated cost is 138 million Euro.

The current building of STV will be sold and the SRO building, the so-called Pyramid, will be used as a gallery of modern art and an archive for the public media institutions.
