Blue Church of St. Elizabeth, Bratislava

4.4
Coated with rows of blue tiles and covered with a blue-glazed roof, Blue Church of St. Elizabeth looks like a giant wedding cake, according to many. The candy-colored church was built around 1908 in the Hungarian secessionist style and first served as the chapel of the neighboring high school. Everything about the church bears resemblance to a cake--its shape, the facade's light blue color, and the white, frosting-like ornaments. A cylindrical church tower rises 37 m (120 ft) from the ground. Notice the circular mosaic of St. Elizabeth of Hungary above the main portal and the altar decorated with the image of her giving alms to the poor.

  • The small church of Sv. Alzbeta dating from 1906, better known as "Modry Kostolik" (Blue Church) is an Art Nouveau building, like the public high school that skirts it

  • It was cute but not overwhelming. I like the inside as it was different than anything I had ever seen.  more »
  • It is very beautiful and particular, next door there is a garden with a building always of the same color and style. Something unique..

  • When we got there, the church was locked. So, we couldn't get in it. From the outside is stunningly beautiful and different from any other church you've seen. Just next to it there is a school with the same style. The school has its own sun clock.
  • A lovely cute little church, in the heart of Bratislava. Love the blue colour and complements well a blue sky. Lovely place to take some photos and a top Instagram site. Walking distance from the centre also which makes it great. Opens on Sunday for Mass at noon.
  • It’s blue alright and it looked very serene in the snowy morning. Their website says they are open but when I got there at 9:20 AM the church was closed. I went in through a side door but the main worship area was closed.
  • Very nice and funky looking church stricter (looks like a bubble-gum). The glazed tiling was special but it didn't feel much like a church. Check the timings of church before going. Built in 1913 it was the chapel of the nearby high school. Now a Catholic Church. Unusual so worth the walk to see .
  • Wonderfully designed and maintained, unfortunately we were not able to enter , but the outside was gorgeous, and it’s a must visit location
