St. Martin's Cathedral, Bratislava

(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
See the former coronation church of Hungarian kings and the largest Gothic minstry in Slovakia at St. Martin's Cathedral, whose tall spire dominates the Old Town. Once a part of the city's fortification walls, the 85 m (279 ft) high tower is topped by the Hungarian crown set on a gilded cushion. The inside of the church features Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque decor, as well as 19th-century Viennese stained-glass windows. A prominent feature of the interior is an equestrian statue of St. Martin dressed like a hussar. The cathedral houses the relics of an early 7th-century saint, John the Merciful.

  • Majestic and impressive, a must see. Attend a holy mess or a concert if possible. Ideal for an evening walk 
  • Free entry, beautiful cathedral, lovely glass stained windows and a small glass floor area where you can see down to skeletons in the old cemetery, well worth a visit if in Bratislava. 
  • According to Wikipedia, the Saint Martin's Cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Bratislava and is a national monument. Me he liked, and as tourist attractions in Bratislava once or twice and was chosen, then I think the Cathedral is certainly worth a visit. And given that there is still and a bunch of Kings visited!))) The House adjoins the Cathedral, old building, decorated with interesting pictures in places where there should be window. Very nice, I liked these pictures several colors TU shabbiness, dirt and turning that around. On the reverse side of the Cathedral is a monument to Ferenc worksheet.

  • Beautiful Cathedral with a lot of history behind it. Notice the gold-plated replica of the St. Stephen's crown on top of the tower. Maria Theresa, the only female ruler of the Habsburg monarchy, was crowned in this cathedral. Don't forget to visit the crypts below the Cathedral which are small but interesting to say the least. The chapel is of the Saint John the Merciful can be found inside the cathedral as well.
  • well-kept simple cathedral. it doesn't look like something special outside, the interior also isn't a great piece of art, but it's worth to see it. we can't forget it has a great historical value so for sure it's palce to visit
  • A slightly different cathedral and although it appears small from the outside it still exhibits greatest on the inside. The detailing in the ceiling is marvelous so it is worth a quick peak inside
  • Together with the Bratislava Castle, St. Martin's Cathedral welcomed us on 30.11.2015🏰. Please pay close attention to the golden crown on the top of its belfry. This crown gives the hint of the main function of the Cathedral between 1563-1830👑.
  • Beautiful. A part of the Old Town landscape. The landing around it is a good place to get some quiet relaxation.
