Lovely cathedral with stunning stained glass windows. The burial place of St John the merciful. However the real highlight, ie the crypt/catecombs were not open due I think to renovation works. Paid €2.50 to see the treasury and choir/ organ balcony.

Well, if you are in Bratislava, this is a must to be visited. Dot. But do not expect nothing special. However I would like to attract your attention to two point: 1. The cathedra was build in into the city walls - so look at the remnants of that. 2. This is the only church I have seen with no... More

My favorite church in this city. It is located near the Castle and its beautiful tower is seen from the castle's walls and windows. The Cathedral is very impressive with lots of amazing altars and stained glass. This is a historical place where were made many coronations of the Hungarian royal family.

Not the usual style cathedral and refreshingly different. Beautiful in its own way - not elaborate in terms of gilt and gold but it does have its charm and the ceilings are stunning. Sadly located quite close to the ring road....

Beautiful church, lots of history. Don't miss the crypt and what lies beneath the statue of St. Martin on horseback.

It held 19 coronations and Queen Maria Theresa was one of... More
