“Christmas Market Locale”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Walked here from the Twin Cities Liner from Vienna. It was very easy to find and surrounded by many large, ornate buildings. The square was covered with stalls selling gifts, ornaments and food. There was a man with a hand-turned merry-go-round. Some children looked a bit scared as he was cranking hard. One lady wanted to get her daughter off, and when the ride stopped, the daughter wanted to stay on. Also the point for a city tour on a little red motorized train.

“A nice place to see”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

The main square itself is quite a long walk starting with National Theatre and ending with a column. It is a traditional Xmas market place! Otherwise, it is a nice entrance to the rest of the city! Don't forget to look at the statue of Hviezdoslav - one of the most famous Slovak poet. The place is at times used as an open air gallery!

“cool landmarks”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

If you visit Bratislava, you should come over Hlavne Namestie and walk around through the plaza. See the castle also you can see whole Bratislava from the top of it.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Really this is a long plaza without much to recommend it. There are some mildly interesting buildings. the National theater i a the best building off the plaza. There are a lot of places to sit and plenty of (expensive) restaurants but there is, other than just sitting, much reason to linger before moving deeper in the Ol Town.

“Central spot”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Worth seeing. Nice landmarks. There are enough benches and bars to see people coming by. Remember your way back to start exploring the old city in other directions.
