The decoration above the doorway of the Keglevich Palace consists of two lions and the coat of arms of the ancient Croatian Keglevich family with a baronial crown. Countess Babetta Keglevich, a talented pianist, was both a pupil and a good friend of Ludwig van Beethoven, who dedicated his Sonata for piano in E, opus 7, and several other small compositions to her. During Beethoven's nine-day visit to Bratislava in 1796 he organised a music academy in the palace. Today it houses the Danish Embassy and company offices.
