The Academia Istropolitana, the first humanist university in the former Hungarian kingdom, was founded in Bratislava by King Matthias Corvinus in 1465. This was of immense significance for the development and spread of humanist philosophy in the Hungarian kingdom. One of the European pedagogues who taught here was Johannes Muller Regiomontanus (1436-1476), who lectured on the movement of the Earth around the Sun 100 years before Galileo. Today the building houses the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava.
