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.

Beautiful Cathedral, especially the outside setting is very nice and the small square outside is one of the most atmosferic places in Bratislava.

Surprisingly there was a sign at the entrance which read stop tourist. Not very friendly towards visitors I've been to far more important churches than this however nobody demanded that I stop calling me a tourist.

How frustrating it was not to be able to get in. The opening hours are ridiculously short and I arrived just too late. For outside though, this is a nice little Cathedral that lies in front of a highway (souvenir from the communist regimes). It should not be missed. Double check though the hours...

It is the second most popular tourist location in Bratislava. Its 85 m high spire dominates Old Town’s skyline. The cathedral is best known for being the coronation church of the Kingdom of Hungary between 1563 and 1830. It held 19 coronations and Queen Maria Theresa was one of the crowned people. Make sure you visit its underground crypt with... More

The cathedral is over 100 years old and its quite a tall structure in the small town. Luckily during our visit it wasn't crowded and could see the beautiful interiors of the cathedral. It might not be the best in the world but a good one.

The cathedral is slightly on the edge of the world town. The access was free when we went there. It is worth a visit. We also visited the crypt.

A lovely building with the usual architectural interest but I expected more religious decorations inside. The Cathedral was in the hands of Lutherans up to about 110 years ago & maybe the reason for not portraying the usual overwhelming respect.
