When my friends and I came to Nitra in September 2001, Pribina Square was quiet at sunset, with many couples holding hands and enjoying a romantic weekend out posing for pictures in front of the statue of Prince Pribina and looking at the Nitra skyline from the fortress walls.
Pribina Square is located in the Upper Town and was once isolated from the rest of Nitra when it was run by the Burghers and Bishops during the Middle Ages. Today, all Slovaks and guests can tour Pribina Square and its sights, and its seminaries are still teaching young men to become priests.
Also located on Pribina Square is a Franciscan Church and Monastery, The Piarist Church, and several Burgher's houses painted in many pastel shades and untouched during many years of war and communism. One should spend a few minutes at Pribina Square and soak in the scenery!
