Very Rich History for a Simple Church

Peaceful and Prayerful Church with layers of history. Take some time and see a tremendous history in the center of Bratislava Old City.

I have been in many churches and cathedrals through Europe, and this was not one of the better ones, although a lovely gothic structure A little dark and dim to make out a lot of the detail. It has a good history if you look into it, and a trip down into the crypts is worth it. Many of the... More

A visit to this cathedral in Bratislava is a must. Located in the center of the city, this magnificent church in gothic architecture takes your breathe away for this small town. The interior offers painting, statutes and ornately stone finishes. Photos can be taken and no charge for entering this magnificent structure. Don't miss it!

This is the biggest and most important cathedral of Bratislava. There used to be a cemetery and an old church here till the 13th century when this spectacular church was built. It was a coronation church of the Hungarian monarchs between 1500s and 1800s. It hosted the coronation ceremonies of 11 kings and queens and 9 consorts. Empress Maria Theresa... More

Quite small and old church. You should visit it if you are a fan of sacral art. It has some rich decorations, but generally is similar to other European churches.

This is a lovely church that gives a feel of the people who lived here in the past and those here now. There are displays of vestments and a peaceful feeling as you stroll throughout the church.

The church was quiet and cooler away from summer Bratislava heat. My main problem was that in the dim light, I found it difficult to read the small English translations of the exhibits. I think they need to re do their signage. Their tourist book is multi lingual but again difficult to read as all languages are in same type... More

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
