School at Dončová Street

The building of a former burgher school is situated at Dončová Street in the centre of Ružomberok, in the vicinity of the Evangelical church.

The three-storey building with a U-shaped floor plan was built in 1925.

Above the entrance, there is a statue of a woman holding a shield, which says: “Love your homeland, science and truth.”

An interesting fact is that on August 28, 1944, there was a plenary session of the Revolutionary National Committee in this building, during which the re-establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic was solemnly declared.

Today, the building serves as a school as well.
