Rudnayovo námestie

Description

Small square with benches in a half-circular shape create atmosphere of contemplation. Maybe because of the fact, that cemetery used to be here until 1778.

The square is named after the Slovak noble and cardinal Alexander Rudnay, but the whole square is interwoven with famous names and statues. In the center is a statue of Slovak linguist and key figure of our literary language Anton Bernolák. By the sides of the stairs are beautiful statues of world famous composer Franz Liszt and sculptor Georg Rafael Donner, who created, for example, the main altar in the St. Martin‘s Cathedral.

Above is the Bratislava’s monumental gothic building, St. Martin’s Dome, which is accessible to tourists for viewing. Next to the building you will notice interesting paintings overlapping windows on the house number 3. You will also find another statue of the Slovak national revivalist Ján Hollý.

On Panská street, near the square, you will notice a beautiful historic building of Salvator Pharmacy built in 1904. This is unfortunately not yet being refurbished for ownership feuds.

St. Martin's Dome opening hours: THU 9:00-11:30 and 13:00-17:00 FRI-SAT 9:00-11:30 and 13:00-18:00 SUN 13:30-16:00
