The church is small in size but of great taste in beauty. The interior is particularly lovely with much splendour and nice paintings. Built in the 17th century, it is an old one. It was built as a protestant church originally for the German community. It is very well preserved.

The Jesuit Church is situated in the quiet Frantiskanske square in Bratislava.This late Renaissance church was originally built by the large German Protestant community around 1638 but was later confiscated from them.The interior of the church has a beutiful Rococo pulpit built by Gode & some good alter paintings by Palko.

Very nice Church to visit with a massive organ that you can constantly heard around the area. The interior of the church its quite nice with some very well achieve decorations and nice frescos. Small but worth a visit if you have the time.

It is on the main square. Little, but the inner decoration is worth to visit. Great organ concerts! From outside you even can miss it, the facade is so simple.

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

The Jesuit Church (Juzuitsky kostol) is located on the main square next to the Old Town Hall building and tower. It was originally built by the German protestant community in 1636-1638. However, it was confiscated and handed over to the Jesuits in 1672 and has remained in their care and keep to this day. Here you can see nice baroque... More

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
