Swarming with people during holidays, Hlavne Namestie serves as the city's center and social hub, a square lined with former palaces featuring a number of architectural styles, from Romanesque to Art Nouveau, including the old town hall. Shop for souvenirs at the souvenir market or get a bite to eat at one of the many hotels, restaurants, and cafes. The square is home to the 16th-century Roland Fountain and many unusual modern sculptures. Some are lurking from corners and emerging from holes in the ground, while others strike poses, such as the statue of the Napoleonic soldier leaning against a bench. The square is also ideal for people-watching or catching some street entertainment.

Главная площадь, она так и называется потому, что главная. Здесь проходят ярмарки, народные гуляния. На этой площади много сувенирных магазинов, фонтан, различные магазины. Площадь совсем небольшая.

Look at the square in the morning and in the afternoon very different. Early in the morning on one of the benches that stand on the square, a beggar sleeping kind of guy in the complete absence of people. But the day is not very crowded by tourists, most of them Chinese tourists. During this visit in Bratislava, is not found in the main square shape Napoleonic soldier who was standing leaning on one of the benches. We hope that this monument is simply taken away for restoration. Information found on this subject.
Sauber, schlicht und einfach ist das Zentrum der Altstadt gehalten. Es geht auch herrlich unaufgeregt zu. Verfehlen kann man den Platz auf keinen Fall.

Travel Tip: During a day trip by train from Vienna, it runs from central station to the Slavin 20 minutes - there are lots of stairs. Then it goes from there another 20 minutes to the Castle. Then we go in approx. 20 minutes to the blue Church. You can spend the noon/afternoon then wonderful old town before it again goes back on the night train to Vienna.
A small public square housing the roland fountain, the old town hall and other historical landmarks. Many restaurants and kiosks in the vicinity and is pretty much always flocking with tourists and localiites.
The square has many faces starting from busy tourist season calming down in the winter evenings. It is most historic Square in Bratislava. Best time to visit it goodbye Sunday early morning for quiet and relaxing moments , or during the Christmas markets. Probably most photogenic times are afternoon and early evening when sunlight Shines on the rathaus. Square is also probably a favorite place of current Dalai Lama who used to visit it and relax here during his private visits to Bratislava.
Peaceful in beautiful. There's a red minibus on the square. You must take it. You can go on a tour of old part of town for only 10 EUR. And they have also audioguide in 17 languages. For all the city only 20 Eur. Also the dirven was nice and he shows you the monuments.
Such a charming square in the city. It definitely gives you the European vibe. Nice place to wonder about.
Lovely square. Busy and quirky. Enjoyed it
