One of the most popular and fluctuated squares in Bratislava.

It’s located directly before the historical building of Slovak national theatre, from where it proceeds to smaller Rybné square at the base of the bridge of Slovak national uprising.

Several art pieces are located here, among which are statue of writer Pavol Országh Hviezdoslav, and wonderful fountains like the one before the theatre called Ganymed fountain from 1888. Mainly in summer, various expositions take place here, along with concerts. This square is a part of Korzo, which is a historical walkway used also today, with the highest fluctuation of tourists and town visitors. Bratislava’s Korzo is basically a triange starting from the Michael’s gate, proceeding through Ventúrska street, Hviezdoslavovo square, and back through Sedlárska street.

Christmas markets take place here each year. There are many stands with refreshments and Christmas goods. The Christmas marets are also located at Hlavné square simoultaneously.

People loving gourmet cuisine will find many famous restaurants on the side of this square, along the beautiful tree alley.

The Christmas markets take place usually during 1 month, from cca 23.11 until 23.12.
