Trafačka café and bar, the building of the former transformer station, founded by photographer František Kolář in Nitra in 2009, provides an exhibition space for important protagonists of photographic art and opens the door to contemporary talented photographers who've been fascinated by photography. The exhibition space on the ground floor of the transformer station is ideologically connected to the attic of the building, where there is a studio focused on working with historical photography. Trafačka is a space with year-round dramaturgy focused on all kinds of alternative art. It gives space to local initiatives for meetings, non-governmental organizations to organize their own events, high schools and universities to apply their projects in practice.
