isn't as impressive as some other churches in Europe but it did have a cool area in the middle of the church which looked down into a cemetery of sorts - bones included. It's a good stop on the walk from the Old Town to Bratislava Castle.

The greatest church in Bratislava, this cathedral should be must-go for everyone wandering through the Old Town. Interior is amazing, but from the outside, St. Elizabeth Cathedral in Košice is much more beautiful ;)

One of the biggest churches in Slovakia and main coronating cathedral in the Kingdom of Hungary from 1563 to 1830. Altogether 19 coronations (1 queen, 10 kings and 8 their consorts) occurred here, including coronation of Maria Theresa of Austria in 1741. The list of crowned kings can be seen inside this beautiful church.

It was so cold in this cathedral it rather spoilt my enjoyment of the amazing features. It was not well advertised that tourists could only visit at certain times and would not be allowed entry at any other time, so check before you visit

As the photo shows this is a truly lovely church. One drawback was the difficulty getting the wheelchair to the entrance. Its up a twisting hill paved with worn smooth stones then over high entrance steps. It was just possible.

This is a hidden gem to the town. It is a Gothic church that seems to be renovated. The interior of the church is far more great than the exterior which seems to be rather modern. The windows of the interior are super!

Probably one of the more impressive and glorious churches of bratislava. Located between the castle and the old city center it is also a good stop for viewing beautiful light through the glass led windows. You cannot enter during services so do plan it a bit and respect these moments. Also the surrounding area of the old historical city center... More

St. Martin's Cathedral is one of the best attractions in Bratislava. The small entry fee of €2 allows for an enjoyable visit to the city's main church. The decoration is lovely, but after visiting churches in Budapest, it is rather muted in style. Despite this, you should defiantly pay a visit to St. Martin's! Visit EARLY IN THE MORNING if... More

A Gothic 3 nave cathedral situated on the edge of the Old Town. There is a replica of the Hungarian crown on its 85 ft tower. It was the coronation church with vivid stained glass, 4 chapels, treasury and crypt.
