St Elizabeth's / Blue Church, Bratislava

4.4
Coated with rows of blue tiles and covered with a blue-glazed roof, St Elizabeth's / Blue Church 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.

  • Beautiful church, closeup view reminds you candy them children, is as story. Beautiful interior, all blue. They told us that it is so requested for weddings, first reserves and then seeks to partner... I advise to make the visit, that Yes, please note, times in which open, maybe it is not all day.

  • Beautiful small blue church...looks like a bubblegum! The location of the church is not amoing the other touristy places but it is surely worth a visit and immediateky catches the attention. It is really pretty from the outside and also serene inside. A must visit!
  • One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. A stunning piece of architecture from early XX century.
  • The church is a bit hidden away from other tourist places in Bratislava so you will not really come across it by accident, but make sure you put it on your route as it is actually so gorgeous and the sky blue color is pretty unique compared to other buildings in the city.
  • Original blue church worth visiting. Not always open but just seeing it from outside is interesting.
  • The only reason for 3 star rating is because the inside was closed as it is the national day here in Bratislava and it was closed as a result but other than that it is deffo worth the visit lol
