It's a good place to see some famous statues and fountains in Bratislava. It's also a place to slow down, take it easy and drink some coffee, beer etc., or to eat a lunch/dinner or only an ice cream. You can relax and just watch many people passing by.

I only caught a couple of the statues in the square and the surrounding buildings were just picturesque. Wasn't sure what to expect to see in Old Town Bratislava but certainly enjoyed what I saw!

This very cute & unusual artwork has a couple of different versions as to why it's there but whichever is the correct one doesn't matter as it's quite a fun tourist attraction.

This is one of the main squares in the city with several restaurants and shops surrounding it. Much more quiet and peaceful in comparison to Prague or Budapest. Nice place to visit.

I was surprised how spacious and uncrowded this square was with neither a church taking up a portion of its space as sometimes happens in town squares nor market stalls selling fruits, vegetables, and souvenirs. The attractions we were interested in seeing - the old city hall and Primate's Palace - were on one side of the square. From that... More

Our hotel was located on Namestie Square and we loved strolling up and down this pedestrian mall and square enjoying the scenery, restaurants and nice trees. It was very busy yet very peaceful. Nice place to take a time out.

We strolled along here, ice cream in our hands and enjoyed the beautiful buildings. It looked like Walt Disney had his hands on the design as it was so captivating to our three kids. We did explain that this was real! Sitting by the fountain you could just watch the world go by and not feel time passing. Thoroughly recommend... More

This square is the main center of many smaller concerts and great place to shop or dine. This place is the most crowded during Christmas time with many stalls and a great atmosphere. About 50m from the square is the famous Irish pub.
