    This small square, between St. Michael’s gate and the Main square (Hlavne Namestie), has some nice sights around it. Two churches, the Church of the Holy Saviour and the franciscan church (Church of the Annunciation). A fountain with a woman pouring water out of a jar stands in the middle of the square. This fountain, called the fountain of the holy trinity, is from a time, when the square was used as a fish market. Therefore, people sometimes mix it up with Rybne Namestie, Fish Square, which is located close to St. Martin’s Cathedral. Unfortunately, there are also some buildings in this square which are in urgent need for refurbishment.

    Frantiskanske Square

    If you're facing the Old Town Hall standing in the Main Square (Hlavne Namestie), the adjacent square just to your left is Frantiskanske Square. Here you'll find some good restaurants and interesting buildings. Large leafy trees provide ample shade if you just want to sit and people watch.

    You'll also notice this statue of a woman pouring water from a jug. This square was once a fish market and back in the 16th century water was brought from the nearby hills. After being removed for over a century, the statue was replaced here in the square in 1998.
