City square is cute and charming, with plenty of pubs. We got lucky during our visit. There was a local artisan festival going on with cultural music and local dancers. The artisan market had potters, basket weavers, wood and metal workers plus more demonstrating and selling with works, plus, a car show of restored old cars. It all added up... More

Hlavne Namestie is a wonderfully quiet town square at the heart of Bratislava. There's no traffic and it is surrounded by beautiful pastel coloured renaissance buildings. The most impressive is the town hall with its clock tower. Look for the cannon ball lodged in the wall just to the left of a first floor window. In the middle of the... More

Just a small square, not very crowded especially during weekdays. Just like all the city center, nice but nothing special. Its a place just to send a few hours.

Not a big square but a nice place to have coffee and cake. A fountain and a couple of statues. A craft 'market' just off the square but nothing is hand-made.

A small square but a meeting point for people and lots of tourists groups. Nice place to chill out and people watch, or just relax!

A lovely square in the middle of the old town. Pick a cafe, order and coffee and one of the delicios pastries and sit back and watch the other tourists and the locals going about their business. If you pick a well positioned cafe you'll be able to sit and look at sights like the Old Town Hall, the Jesuit... More

Old city of Bratislava is quite nice, but the main square is nothing special. The streets next to the square are more interesting.
