  • This square is very well maintained. When walking though it we were impressed by the cleanliness. Tbe trees overhanging create a lovely soft light and the cobblestone on the floor creates the ideal effect of being on holiday and relaxing. Bratislava as a whole has been amazing and the overall city centre is very small but worth the visit
  • We walked through as it had shade from the trees and it was so nice. We bought ice-cream and there was someone playing the flute that made our stroll very angelical. It's a nice place to walk by during the afternoon
  • A very beautiful city square with really quite beautiful buildings and monuments. This square must be visited by anyone on holiday in Slovakia.
  • It is brilliant and has protective wiring so if you are afraid of falling then it will stop you before you have tripped over. I suggest taking a camera with a long distance viewing system and a thick jumper even in 40 degree weather.
  • One of the biggest and the most sought after tourist place in Bratislava. It's large too probably the largest square in city featuring the National Theatre, American ambassy, one of the fanciest hotels in town called Carlton with casino + bar opened 24/7, number of bars, pubs, caffes and restaurants, nice little fountain and usually plenty of tourists all around. And it's all situated only about 100 meters from the second largest river in Europe - Danube and not far from the Bratislava Castle. Nothing special but must see spot if you decide to come to Bratislava.
