The SNP Square (that's the Slovak National Uprising Square) is a public square in central Bratislava, just outside the Old Town. Historically it has been used as a focal point for national demonstrations, especially independence demonstrations during the 20th century. There's a few monuments related to the demonstrations around the square.

There's not much to see around the square, although there's plenty of shopping and the likes.

The Slovak National Uprising Square also known as ,Namestie SNP is one of an interesting place to visit in Bratislava. It is the location where many of the protests against the communist regime where held back in 1989. It is also where you can find the statues built in honour of the Slovak Uprising in 1944 against the pro-Nazi Slovak government. They are quite drab and dark, somewhat of a reminder of the period which followed under communist rule. There is a church with an nice facade but we didn't visit the inside and a couple additional attractive buildings on the square. Otherwise, we found little else to see here as visitors.

Overall, a historically important location in the city center area but perhaps not a priority for those visiting Bratislava on a quick trip. The Main square and the nice Hviezdoslavovo Namestie located within the city center are more interesting if you are short on time. If you are visiting the city for a a few days, you can quickly make a stop at the Namestie SNP, its very near to Micheal's Gate.

SNP Square is one of the largest squares in Bratislava and is covered in the guided walking tours of the old city. It has historically been a venue of public protests and is now a venue for concerts and rallies.There are statues in memory of the Slovak National Uprising of 1944

Námestie SNP is significant throughout the country and has huge historical importance for being one of the key places that was linked to the independence of the nation of Slovakia and where demonstrations and events have been held. The square and the surrounding area has a wealth of imposing buildings and many eateries making it one of the main focal points in Bratislava. At the time we visited it was busy with many people making a bee-line for the restaurants in the square. A place that is hard to miss when in Central Bratislava.

SNP Square or Slovak National Uprising Square ( Slovensky Narodne Povstanie ) is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most important squares in Bratislava.
A gathering point for meetings and the scene of the 1944 Slovak uprising against the Nazi's during WW2, it's a wonderful place to visit.
Some superb architectural landmarks here including the clock tower built in 1552 and also the magnificent Ursuline Church & Convent,the beautiful Plague Column is also located here ,it's just one great square to visit,if you tire of the splendid architecture here you also have innumerable pubs, bars and restaurants in and around the square, it's just a great place to visit.
Easy to locate ,tram number 1,7,9,10,13 to stop Námestie SNP drops you off in the square.
Well worth checking out.

This square is just outside the Old Town area and is very important for the Slovak people. It is a memorial of the Slovak National Uprising of 1944 against the Nazis - actually constructed by the Communists when they came in a took over. Later, in 1989 it was the location for peaceful protests against Communism and a popular gathering place today.

It's interesting to learn about and see, though I think it's much more meaningful for the Slovak people than it might be for visitors.

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. At the same time, the place was essential in the revolution against the soviet regime in 89 and you feel this too. The Place itself is not extremely interesting, but has a nice feeling and around it are a lot of cafes (for example the "Gorila") and institutions like the "Kunsthalle" or other buildings, as other reviews wrote. You will defnitly encounter this place if you walk around bratislava, so have a look at the statues!

This is the place where we won against the communism in the 1989 (November). Place where we have to go, but nothing really to see. In the revolutionarry times it was overcrowded (15.000-30.000 people ringing theur keys on keychains against the regime)
Powerfull emotions for people who had been there in THE TIME

As the previous reviewer already mentioned, enter the main Post Office building and be surprised. You need to look around some of the buildings around the SNP square to properly appreciate it as you might be discouraged by a stray beggar or homeless here adn there. I would recommend seing the Old Market Hall as well as the Bratislava Flagship Restaurant - their interiors are just huge. Great view over the square and this part of town from KC Dunaj rooftop terrace (you need to enter from the other side of Dunaj shopping centre on Nedbalova st. and take the elevator up to the fourth floor).
