The square underwent major reconstruction at the end of the 20th century. Before reconstruction, it looked like a small city park; now it looks like a city promenade. Very colourful in every season because if the lot of tourists. Huge number of restaurants, pubs and candy shop can be found here. Some events usually arranged on the open air stage in this square also. Must to feel the multicultural vibrations during evening walking in summer!
Nice walking area in the city close to a lot of the sightseeings.
There is nice ice skating area in Winter
The square is primarily a pedestrian zone with lots of green, with a podium in the central part for cultural events, and two parallel fountains running along the square. During the month of December is here the largest Christmas Market of Bratislava down town. Every evening it would get very busy. You can buy all kinds of Slovak specializes to eat and to drink.
