... one of the many benches lining the square- his hat is pulled over his eyes and he's barefoot so it's not a compliment to the French soldiers but the Slovaks weren't treated very well by Napoleon's troops. The large town hall has a cannonball lodged in its wall from the siege of that time- we walked through its courtyard which was beautifully restored with Renaissance facades.
