For a small entrance fee you can visit the Cathedral where signs are in English as well as Slovac. The crypt is worth going down to.

Not the most spectacular of cathedrals (either inside or outside), but well worth a visit to see where so many of the Habsburg Coronations took place. (A large number of the family are entombed in the crypt of the Capuchin Church in Vienna).

This Cathedral is an iconic landmark in the city. It houses the relics of St. John The Charitable. When I visited it was quiet, and I was able to meditate and say a few prayers. The architecture is that of a "crucifix" shape and is predominatly of Gothic style with hints of Baroque characteristics. I didn't remember being asked to... More

I arrived here convinced to enter and visit the church which outside looks great, but I found out there were a entrance fee to pay. Really disappointing! As I well know all the treasure that the Vatican owns, I won't by any reason pay to visit a church! No way.

St Martin’s Cathedral - 14th Century Gothic – is a must see where the opportunities are to explore the Battlements, the Crypt area below the Cathedral is fascinating, plus the ground level and then up to the Tower for more great views. The Treasury contains jewelled objects, garments and vestments. This used to be the Cathedral where Kings and Queens... More

As with most city cathedrals, this is an imposing and worthwhile visit. Don't miss the crypt on your way round. It is quite different to that of an English cathedral - more of a mini-catacomb.

A lot of Austro-Hungarian kings were coronated in the buetiful gothic church. Not only from outside, but from inside it is very nice. Calm, peaceful, and not too many tourists were there. It is something you shouldn't miss.

The St Martin's cathedral is where some kings of Hungary where crowned. If you walk around the outside you can see that it is built into the old city wall.
