A quiet place for a moment's reflection but a little too cold for me! The cathedral's age makes it worth seeing though.

St. Martin´s Cathedral was the most important church in ancient Hungary Kingdom. It was place for coronation of the kings between 1563 and 1830. This church was very friendly for composer Franz Liszt.

I only visited the area outside of the church, but it was magical. It was a quite sunny afternoon and the small gardens and steps in front of the church, made it magical! A must see in Bratislava!

Very important cathedral for Bratislava and also for Austrian-Hungarian empire. Worth for a visit, not only for historical reasons, but also for nice paintings, architecture. If you will be very lucky, maybe i will se also crypth under this church.

This is a beautiful Cathedral that must be photographed at least on the Old Town Tour. Well worth a visit whilst looking at this beautiful part of Bratislava. It is free to enter but donations are welcomed.

Small when compared to other, more famous, European cathedrals, St. Martin's is one of the oldest and largest cathedrals in Slovakiia. Eleven kings and queens have been crowned here, significating it's importance. We heard an organ recital here as part of our Viking cruise; what an experience. Loud, clear tones. If only they had played Phanom of the Operra. Well... More

10 Kings and 1 Queen (of Hungary) have been crowned here. A very interesting building. Worth going down into the crypt and then visiting the religious treasures on display as well. Attended an organ recital which was very enjoyable (free, with donations afterwards towards the Cathedral).

Find your way down from the castle and stop there. Very simple 'cathedral' near an expressway certainly built during the communist time. You can then take the small cobbled streets to get to the center of the old town
