Main Square, Bratislava

Main Square, Bratislava (must see)

Main Square (or Hlavne Namestie) is the center of the Old Town and a home to several key historic local landmarks, namely: the Stará Radnica (Old Town Hall) and the Roland Fountain. The Old Town Hall was partially built in the 14th century; its highlight is undoubtedly the clock tower that is visible from all over the city. The nearby Maximillian Fountain features a 10,5 meter statue of Roland the knight, protector of Bratislava. Legend has it that every New Year at a stroke of midnight, the statue – otherwise facing the new Town Hall – turns around and bows toward the Old Town Hall building. The latter is also quite famous for having a cannonball stuck in its wall, fired by the advancing Napoleonic troops back in 1809. The bronze statue of Napoleon himself, leaning over a bench, is also located nearby.
