Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue, Bratislava
(3.8/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Throughout the tour by the Bratislava Centre, you will find you several figures like this, the truth very original and entertaining. Squeezed the imagination, you can take some pictures of fun with them.

  • The site is worth knowing, not only by the statue, but for all you have around, shops and restaurants.

  • The statue of the Napoleonic soldier and one of many in the city. Definitely worth a picture, but nothing more.
