This is a well-maintained and very beautiful building which has been the site of coronation of so many of the country's monarchs. It is full of interest and is easy to access in the Old Town.

Uninspiring, except for the fact that this church hosted the coronations of many Hungarian kings when Slovakia was part of the Hungarian empire. The spire is topped with the Hungarian royal crown.

As a Roman Catholic church, it is the largest church in Bratislava. It was the coronation church of Hungary. Its appearance is glorious, but not greatly decorated. It is 85m tall and the pinnacle of the church is green, so it is very stand out...More
