Posing casually on the back of a bench, Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue represents a local legend that sprang from the French imperial army's time in the Slovak capital. The bronze statue stands in the city's main square with his hat at a jaunty angle, casually surveying the crowds. As the story goes, the soldier fell in love with a Bratislavan girl and ended up staying for the rest of his life. Many visitors pose for a picture with the famous soldier, imitating his pose by standing at his side with crossed arms.

Napoleon’s Army Soldier Statue reviews
Only low review score because the statue has been moved, but no-one seemd to no where....and yet all the tourist information is still showing this as being in the main square leaning on the seat... more »
Plenty of these attractions dotted around the streets of Bratislava. There’s a series of these..my favourite is the man peeping out of the manhole. Very good for photographs. more »
The soldier has deserted his post. A most grievous dereliction of duty!
Confirming this statue is gone! Supposedly removed summer of 2018 by some drunks... never seen again.
