  • This old church, near the castle of Bratislava, is a venerable church where the Hungary King's coronation took place. At the tip of the tower was a replica of the crown of the King Hungary, but it was dark and I was sorry that I could not see it well.

  • As cathedrals go in Europe this one is decidedly modest however it is certainly worth visiting. The is an impressive statue of St. Martin as well as some nice art work on the side altars. When looking around you should take note of the decorative carvings in the choir. Mass is offered in Latin on Sundays at 09h thoughout the year.
  • The oldest and the most beautiful church in Bratislava full of beautiful decorations, colourful windows with wonderful mosaics. The statues decorating the interior show the rich catholic history of this town and its importance in Hungarian kingdom in the past. Must see point in Bratislava.
