I did not find this square that great; there are some bars and restaurants around it; as well as the American embassy. The opera house was the only building worth taking a picture.

This is main city quite in central Bratislava. I would definitely recommend visiting in December, as the square hosts a brilliant Christmas market. Lots of stalls selling food, drinks and an array of arts and crafts/gifts. Stock up on some honey wine!

Spent a lot of time here. The Xmas markets were some of the best I've been to. Great trinkets and the food was unreal. Nice surroundings and generally a really good atmosphere

To truly appreciate the square pay to enter the museum and take a trip up the tower for a birds eye view. Comes alive with the Christmas markets. Some colourful characters.
