The residency of the free king?s town Pressburg self-administration used to be the Old Town Hall. The complex of buildings from various period-styles is called the core of the Old Town Hall today. Originally, it was formed from the gothic house with reeve Jacob?s tower. It was mentioned in 1370 in King?s Ludovit letter for the first time. It has preserved almost unchanged until today. The portal of the house is simple, late gothic and it has been renewed with the latticed oriel with stone statues. There is the statue of Virgin Mary from the year 1676 on the quoin of the rococo stylized tower. The town bought the neighbouring Unger?s house in 16th century. In 20th century, the eastern annex was completed in the neogothic style, whereby the Primacial palace was joined with the Old Town Hall. This historical building is the residence of the town?s museum, today. * 799 x 599 * (139KB)

Former name of the square was The Market Square and it was renamed into The Main Square because not only markets took place here but also all social events such as celebrations and exucitions were done here. Later on it was called The Square of 4th April which should remind people of the day when the Soviet army freed Bratislava. Nowadays it's called The Main Square again...
