Today we commemorate the 76th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising’s beginning

One of the most important events that took place in Slovakia gave also the name to the most important public space in Bratislava.

However, SNP Square was developed without vision nor thourough maintenance of the public space. Further, this square is predominantly a tranzit area, about which, although being an important mental footprint of the city, hardly anyone would say that it is in a good shape.

Below you can watch a video feature, where the director of the Public Space Department Roman Žitňanský introduces the identity of the square and describes the state it currently is in.

The video feature was created as a document for the competition teams, which proceeded in the architecture competition to restore SNP, Kamenné and Velvet Revolution Squares.
