Štefan Cyril Parrák (1887 - 1969) was a confectioner and baker from Trnava, enthusiastic admirer of folk art and antiques, who created a large collection of folk, artistic and historical works by his persistent visiting of villages throughout western Slovakia and by shopping of various items. In 1935 his collection was so extensive that he decided to exhibit it in his confectionery. The private Parrák´s museum became one of the sights of Trnava. Later the collection of Š. C.
