The square itself offeres many live shows during the warmer months, or christmas market in the winter. There's a fountain in the middle, if you feel like throwimg a few coins ;) There's a clock tower facing the... More

This is my hometown which I left 48 years ago.Love it but I wish the city fathers would clean it up.If you give your bars and restaurants a licence to serve food outside on the sidewalks..make them clean it up!

If you are coming to Bratislava you must visit this place and the surrounding buildings. All over Europe there are beautiful old town centres and this is no exception. The exterior is stunning during the day but even better at night when lit up.

I was eager to visit this place as soon as i saw the photos online. However, they were removing the kiosks of the Christmas market when we went there and there was total chaos! Cars, trunks and labors all over the place and we couldn't even take photos because of the mess! I still can't figure out why they don't... More

What a fantastic time of year to visit Bratislava. This quaint and charming town caught me by surprise. Main square is bustling during the day and lively at night, with the Christmas Market being the focal point and tastefully illuminated buildings serving as a backdrop. Traditional foods like punsch, sausage, pork sandwiches, strudels, langos and crepes are served at food... More

Visited the main square of the old town in late Nov as it was being prepared for the annual Christmas market. As a result, however, it looked more like a construction site than a functioning main square. Obviously still an essential part of a visit to Bratislava though.

Still there's something going on. In winter there are Christmas markets along with music concerts in the summer there are various leisure activities.
