Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue, Bratislava

(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Posing casually on the back of a bench, Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue represents a local legend that sprang from the French imperial army's time in the Slovak capital. The bronze statue stands in the city's main square with his hat at a jaunty angle, casually surveying the crowds. As the story goes, the soldier fell in love with a Bratislavan girl and ended up staying for the rest of his life. Many visitors pose for a picture with the famous soldier, imitating his pose by standing at his side with crossed arms. Put Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue into our Bratislava vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This chap if to be found in one of the main squares oiutside the French Embassy. Leaning on the bench he is the target of tourists and their cameras.He is life sized in bronze. A must see 
  • Stop by and make a snapshot, or sit down for a while to relax inbetween your discovery journeys. Ideally followed by climbing up the Old Townhall tower 
  • The statue lied in the heart of the city people passed by and stopped to take photos they ofter imitated it by lowering the hats and posing the same as it did
