We were told by our guide that Bratislava’s economy does not significantly benefit from the river ships’ docking; as they do not stay overnight so hotels and dinner restaurants receive no business from the brief encounters with the ships’ tourists. Bratislava’s Main Square contains the Roland Fountain, built in 1572 and serving as the town’s main water supply at the time. Other attractions in the Old Town area include some funny brass sculptures - including "Rubberneck" (a little pervert reportedly peering up women's skirts from his manhole) and "Napoleon's Soldier" leaning over a park bench. There is also a metal plaque marking the first witch burning in 1602. A nice easygoing tour.
