(4.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Once the residence of an archbishop and the site of the treaty that would dissolve the Holy Roman Empire, Primates' Palace (Primacialny palac) today serves as the office of the mayor. Visit the palace, finished in 1781 and now open to the public, and admire its ornate facade featuring a wealth of neoclassical architectural designs. Make your way to the main attraction, the lavishly decorated Hall of Mirrors, which witnessed the signing of the 1805 Peace of Pressburg. Don't miss seeing the inner courtyard, complete with a statue of St. George, and the 17th-century English tapestries, which have survived in their original state for centuries.

  • Palace overlooking the square, very nice in the various architectural details and decoration, as well as the color that contrasts with the other buildings. Admission fee but you can linger in the courtyard entrance to appreciate something more.
