Visited with my partner last month. We have been to many cathedrals across Europe. This one felt different. We laughed quite a few times (not sure if that's such a good thing to say after a visit to a cathedral). There is the mummified remains of St John the Merciful which are visible inside a closed off part of the... More

The stories of the Church are wonderful and the church is quite impressive. I did not like the pressure to pay to enter. It is, after all, a church!

A must see as this church is not just the major one in Bratislava, it has the largest organ in Slovakia. So, if time permits, go for an organ concert. For centuries, this church was the coronation church for Hungarian kings and queen in the times, when Bratislava was actually the capital of Hungary.

the small entrance fee (2€ august 2014) is definitively worth a visit to this nice and big church: there are a lower part, old treasures, niceconstruction. with a guide you can appreciate in the best way the importance and majestic of it!

Such a great building! First challenge : finding the entrance which remained untouched! The place around the Church is also full of history.

I would reccommend this with a guidebook in hand to tell you more of the history behind the place. I purchased an English guidebook on a market stall out there (all the stalls sold the same brand) and it was much more informative than the guidebook I'd taken out with me. With the guidebook I was able to walk round... More

The largest and most impressive church in Bratislava. This is where 11 Hungarian Kings and 8 of their wives were crowned. The most important coronation was that of Marie Theresa in 1741. She lived at Bratislava Castle during her reign. At the very top of the spire there is a golden cushion with crown on it, showing its royal connection.... More

This Cathedral is also known as the Coronation Church of Hungary. It has a large tower which overlooks the city standing on a cross road, which is topped with a replica of the Crown of St Stephen. There is much to see around the Cathedral too not to forget the Castle on the adjacent hillside.

This 3-nave Gothic cathedral was built in 1221 and rebuilt in 1291 when Bratislava became a town. Between 1563 & 1830 the cathedral served as the coronation church for 11 Hungarian kings. Don't miss the first work of Central European sculpture made from lead inside the church. It depicts St. Michael sitting on a horse bending to a beggar. He... More
