Walking out of the centre, towards the castle you arrive first at this Cathedral. It is well worth a visit and to climb the steps to get there. Not very touristy so quite quiet.

This church is a catholic church in Bratislava. Finished built in the year 1452. Built in gothic style. This was one of the few churches I wanted to go inside and then as very often photo forbidden so i went out as fast as i come. I want to have respect for rules and not be in shame of myself....

The large number of ancient kings and queens crowned here would suggest a more ornate building. That said, there is a lot to admire in the building with beautiful alter, alcoves and frescos. Within easy walking distance of old town centre and well worth the visit. Photography is banned.

Must see when in Bratislava. It has cool view of an 11th Century skeleton remains from an old catacomb.

We stumbled upon the Cathedral when we saw the gold spire from a distance. This is a beautiful old church, filled with a lot of wonderful art and finishing. A beautiful place to spend a little time and reflect on the history of the cathedral.

One of the few free buildings to enter in the old town, a grand but small cathedral, close to the UFO bridge and castle, no facilities inside and catacombs currently closed.
