Hlavne Namestie, Bratislava

4.3
#9 of 153 in Sightseeing in Slovakia
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Bratislava

Save money on a trip to the pricey town of Bratislava by booking a private room or by staying in one of the many hostels. While there are hotels here, frequent business travelers have driven prices up. Find accommodation in Stary Mesto--the city's Old Town--and experience the medieval charm of the area, such as winding streets, old churches, and a hill-top castle. Consider staying on the Danube for riverside views. Be sure to check the reviews of your lodging ahead of time; the quality of accommodations can vary.
