A small little area next to a busy road has a monument in it to celebrate an important part of Slovakian history. You only need a short time to see this area but it is worth the trip as it is not far from the old town. The downside was that it wasn't more peaceful.

A church, a lot of coffe houses and restaurants, and Soviet statues, to remember Slovakia's past. This was one of the places where people were gathering to protest again the soviet friendly regime.

The SNP Square is a quintessential soviet-time and revolution of 89 place to me. The statues on the place and it´s name have these typical Partisan-Memorial style you see a lot in the former soviet states in eastern Europe.
