Any Bratislava visit will pass by this incredible square! I enjoyed the mix of old buildings (like the old Town Hall) and internationality (the Japanese Embassy). In Summer furthermore it must be very lively. Don't miss the statues on and around the square.

The town has a few statues like this one, but this one is the best of the lot. It is not very difficult to find this , it is located at the end of street close to the town square. Its a photo spot for most tourists...

The main square of Bratislava, surrounded by colorful buildings, restaurants, souvenir shops and mini market. Main attractions are all within walking distance. You can find around here some of many "funny" sculptures that are spread around Bratislava.

At that time of the year, the city doesn't have many tourists. Some shops that were here last Summer when I visited the city, are not yet installed. It is a spacious space.

We stayed close to the main square, so we walked through here several times during our three-day stint in Bratislava. It is beautiful, well-maintained and primarily comprised of pedestrian-only streets - a plus if you like to wander around looking up at buildings and statues - rather than watching for traffic! Keep an eye out for the lovely and unique... More

This square in the heart of Bratislava has some very well refurbished and nicely painted historical buildings, a warm illumination during the evening and some funny sculptures.

Awesome place surrounded with historical buildings. In winter there is famous Christmas market, obviously crowded by people. But this place offers atmosphere and historical feeling all year around.

The main square in Old Town is lined with beautiful historic buildings containing shops, restaurants, and museums, and centred around a lovely fountain. Beautiful place- and somewhat unavoidable if you're in Old Town.
