Third time here and getting better everytime

Our first visit of the church was in 2007, and the outside was terrible. But today it is a different picture and one can notice the enourmous change. Keep up the good work!

It was nice to know that this is the coronation place and that kings held their ceremonies here. The cathedral has a nice appearance from outside and is the first thing one bumps into before stepping into the old town. The interior is far better than the outside and the furniture showed much splendour. It dates back to the 15th... More

Inside it is light and bright with beautiful tiled floors. The stained glass windows are lovely and the wood carving is just beautiful.Lovely gilded ceiling.... More

The place of Royal Coronations, the display of vestments, chalices and other religious relics attests to its rich historical past. I was impressed by the beautiful glass windows and furnishings and not to forget, a crypt. As... More

I was shocked when I saw this one from the distance! And it turned out to be 70m*40m dimensions. Marvellous and enormous, and shocking showing how much money were spend not for people`s good, but to solid the power of the King and the Faith.

St. Martin's cathedral is one of the most significant symbols of Bratislava. It was built in the 12th century and almost immediately became the center of an everyday life. Originally a Roman architecture has been converted in the Gothic style in the 13th century and remained till today.
