We heard Mass at this church just as we walked in at 12 noon. Good opportunity if you want to go through a church during this year of mercy. This church is designated a Holy Door.

Interesting on the outside and inside. The austere beauty of the Cathedral creates a special atmosphere. Very beautiful sculpture and stained glass

We were in awe inside as the architecture is impressive. You feel a sensation of peace and it is a very good place for reflection.

In my opinion Saint Martin's Cathedral was the biggest attraction in town. It is a gorgeus building which really worths the visit.

This church is probably the largest in Bratislava. It does have a nice altar and religious statues and an attractive vaulted ceiling but is not as ornate as most churches in Prague, Budapest or Vienna (or many other Cathedrals in Europe)

If you come to Bratislava, you definitely have to visit this place. It's a place with a deep history and also very important. I also recommend to go to the castle from where you can see it also.

St. Martin's Cathedral was filled with families attending a confirmation ceremony the Saturday morning I visited the church. As the ceremony was about to begin, I had just a quick look at the interior from the doorway. The reason for my visit was to see inside a church that had been used 19 times to crown the emperor of the... More

This cathedral is located at the edge of Bratislava's Old Town right next to highway leading through the center of the town. It's easy to find as its tower is visible from all directions in the city. It's a small cathedral but with stunning ornaments and statues. If visiting please be aware that during and between the services you are... More

The cathedral is very beautiful, but you should be aware of the service from 11.30-13.00 Monday to Saturday, where you cannot explore the interior of the cathedral.

This is the smallest cathedral we have ever seen in a capital city but the interior with its beautiful ceilings and impressive statues is well worth visiting.
