A liitle off the beaten track but not hard to find, this church is a charming building and is painted blue. We did not get the chance to look inside. Not sure I would rate as a 'must see'.

Worth the effort to go and see. Seen a lot of churches in our travels and this doesn't stand out above them. However it is spectacular and close by to the main attractions.

Serene energies, but avoid the tourist hours. It can get crowded with people more focused on photographing the unique blue building rather than noticing the energy here.

The church itself is terrific - old and lovely. Remarkable, especially as this area was behind the iron curtain for so long and this survived. St. Elizabeth of Hungary is one of the local saints - she is usually seen with bread, as she fed the poor. Be sure after touring the church you find the terrace outdoors, where you... More

Only 10 minutes from the centre of the Old Town, it is unlike any church I've visited due to the blue decoration. Visually stunning, looked like it came out of a fairytale. Unfortunately the inner gate was closed, so we could see the interior, but not walk around it.

We didn't know about this church, we see the sign in the city and decided to explore this place. Really nice church, it was interesting to see this building in the middle of gray buildings.

Worth going a bit off the beaten track to visit this Gaudiesque church. Very safe area - so don't be worried about leaving the old town. Also note the buildings right next to it, also very intersting

The art style is not my favorite, but it is very unique. We went in but there was mass going on, so we didn't stay for long, but it was definitely a landmark, if only for the garish color scheme.

St. Elizabeth's is one of the most unique churches I've visited. A short ten minute walk from the main pedestrian zone, the Blue Church is worth the photo opportunity. When we visited, the Church was not open for visitation; however, the entrance is designed so that you can see through glass doors to view the interior. The blue facade of... More

Very original and rare but mainly magnificent! Not far from the Old Town so I recommend you to visit this great church.
