  • Very crowded during winter, but normally there isn't that many people, so it's perfect for a nice walk. Sadly all restaurants AND shops are overpriced because of it being in the city centre. Solid 4/5.
  • Nice place to spend some time walking, meeting people or just sitting and relaxing. There's lot of ice cream shops around during summer time as well as many restaurants through the whole year. On one of its end you can find Slovak national theatre historical building with its fountain. There are also open sky galleries and festivals organized on memorial days or other occasions. Street artists do their performance for visitors, eventually with a possibility to interact. Kids can spend time also on a small playground with swings. X-mas time offers market during advent month with plenty of gastronomy and gift stuff. Just go there and have a nice time ☺️
