Our tour group visited this relatively small church. The statuary, stain-glass windows, and pulpit with an arm sticking out holding a cross with the figure of Jesus were fantastic. We also enjoyed the brief concert. Definitely worth a visit and many photos.

Right in the heart of the old city this church quietly sits beside the ecclectic old town hall and is often passed by which would be a real shame. It is a beautiful church with Lutherian structure and has survived throughout the numerous historic events in the region and now remains as Jesuit Church

When you look from outside you think that is just a normal church, that is not that old. But when you go inside it is beautiful. I stayed for the entire service of the mess, given in Slovak, just to spent some time in the church!!

We had a good view from the front door as we are not able to enter inside due to wrong timings. But the view from the gate was simply majestic.

The church was originally built by the Lutherans in 1638 .. by royal decree, the church could not have a tower, presbytery or main entrance. After an unsuccessful anti-Hapsburg uprising,t he church was confiscated and given to the Jesuits. To commemmorate the suppression of the uprising, the king had a column of the Virgin Mary built in front of it!... More
