Attended a choral Latin Mass here recently. Beautiful Cathedral with wonderful acoustics. Full of atmosphere. Some lovely art in the Cathedral. Worth a visit.

The church is very beautiful inside. As I travel in Europe, the churches are so very beautiful to see. Its worth a look inside, you wont be disappointed.

This is a very old cathedral. The front is jammed against a busy roadway, but it is possible to approach from the other side, and there is a side entrance. The fabric of the cathedral is in need of some tender love and care (and money!), but is has a quiet charm and attractive windows. A glass slab in the... More

Home for the coronations of many Hungarian monarchs gives the cathedral a real sense of history. Catholic in style, but very understated. Most beautiful stained glass. It's easy to miss the crypt, but make sure you visit. 2.50 euros to visit, very well worth it. Highly recommended.

We wanted to see inside this cathedral and as we were walking back to our hotel we took the chance. Well worth the admission fee. The crypts are not to be missed, with access from one of the side rooms. Make the effort if this is your kind of thing.

There is nothing special about the Cathedral except it's part in Slovakian History as the Fortified (look at the thick walls) Catholic Church on the Old Town of Bratislava which is just below the Hrad Castle. The Cathedral is hard to miss for it is the tall structure overlooking the smaller medieval type houses which is nice to take pictures... More

If you ike visiting churches, learning a bit about the local history or just appreciating the buildingś beauty, I would recommend visiting it. The catedral entry fee is very affordable, and for the price you can walk through the whole church and make some pictures. All the religious items are described in English, and they have special brochures to endulge... More

Take a guide to outline the history of this magnificent cathedral. Ours was included on Viking River cruise itinerary. Coronations of kings and queens, wonderful statue of St Martin cutting his cost in half to give half to a poor man, who St Martin then believed to have been Christ. Lots of great history.
