St. Martin's Cathedral (Dom svateho Martina), Bratislava

See the former coronation church of Hungarian kings and the largest Gothic minstry in Slovakia at St. Martin's Cathedral (Dom svateho Martina), 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.

  • An interesting and historic church in the old town and near the castle. Not as ornate as some churches I have visited but it has its own charm . Unfortunately it is right next to the motorway that was...  more »
  • Gorgeous Temple, quite impressive and fills. Bravo who had no ticket because in other capitals have. Charming stained glass, a pity that does not leave to take photo. It is one of the must see of the city

  • Beautiful place full of history. A few very interesting facts. All the Queens and Kings of Hungary Austrian Kingdom were crowned in this cathedral. The golden crown on the top is relatively small when you look at it from the ground level but it's actually as big as a car.
  • Nice looking church with somewhat Gothic architecture... The exterior is not very enigmatic but it is beautiful from the inside.
  • Had a short look there. Nice church but nothing special personally.
  • A spire dominating the skyline of Bratislava is the three-nave Gothic church from the 15th century which served as the former coronation church. A gold-gilded replica of the coronation crown, weighing 150kg and the size of a small car, is atop of the cathedral tower of 85m. The interior is ornate but when we visited there was a concert, so we could only peep through the door.
  • This is a wonderful Cathedral in Bratislava . Not so ostentatious like most churches but has alot of history behind it. Definitely deserves 5 stars and a must visit
