  • Why is it called area? According to our views in this Boulevard. The wide pedestrian street, on which there are sculptures, monuments, fountains. Many different cafés and restaurants for all tastes. A lot of souvenir shops. .. Favorite tourist street, where you can just sit and relax in the shade of the trees.

  • It's a Boulevard in old town. There is much going on. Everything is kept very clean. A tour out here worthwhile. 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.

  • One of the most popular squares in the Old Town of Bratislava, it extends from near the Novy Most (new bridge) to the Slovak National Theater. The beautifully paved square is lined with trees and is home to many statues and sculptures, restaurants, bars and important buildings. When I visited, there were many temporary stalls selling souvenirs. It is a beautiful walk and a great way to enter the old town.
  • Beautiful place, but really crowded. Very good shade because of trees, thanks god! Nice atmosphere.
  • The square underwent major reconstruction at the end of the 20th century. Before reconstruction, it looked like a small city park; now it looks like a city promenade. Very colourful in every season because if the lot of tourists. Huge number of restaurants, pubs and candy shop can be found here. Some events usually arranged on the open air stage in this square also. Must to feel the multicultural vibrations during evening walking in summer!
  • Main attraction center of Bratislava.. Tourists can find almost anything arround the square with easy access to the center also..its sorrunded with wonderfull fountains and sculptures where you can get nice pictures and enjoy your ice cream or beer or food..
  • One of the most beautiful square in Bratislava
