#12 of 1,142 in Things to do in Slovakia
Swarming with people during holidays, Hlavne Namestie serves as the city's center and social hub, a square lined with former palaces featuring a number of architectural styles, from Romanesque to Art Nouveau, including the old town hall. Shop for souvenirs at the souvenir market or get a bite to eat at one of the many hotels, restaurants, and cafes. The square is home to the 16th-century Roland Fountain and many unusual modern sculptures. Some are lurking from corners and emerging from holes in the ground, while others strike poses, such as the statue of the Napoleonic soldier leaning against a bench. The square is also ideal for people-watching or catching some street entertainment.
