Evangelic Lutheran Lyceum (Evanjelické lyceum) in Bratislava, Slovakia, was founded in 1606 by David Kilger as a Lutheran high school. Until 1656 was Evangelical Lyceum a school with eight classes, two of them elementary school. Among its students, from 1829 to 1836, was the young Ľudovít Štúr, who became a member of Czech-Slav Society at the school, an important influence on his life as a Slovak nationalist.

Between 1923 and 1989 the school was closed, but it was reopened in 1991 as a bilingual school, and continues to operate today.[2]
