Where : St Martin's Cathedral, Bratislava
Discovering St Martin’s Cathedral.
The St Martin’s Cathedral is located in the historic old town of Bratislava. It's actually on way to the Bratislava castle, you'll easily find the Gothic style tower. Actually we tried to visit on our first day after the castle, but they were closed. So we returned the next morning to be safe. With this in mind, just double check the hours before you visit.
More on it.
Outside the church looks quite simple, but it's far from it when you get in ! Although it's small (compared to other churches in Europe) it’s really beautiful inside! You'll notice the overhead Gothic arches, beautiful and huge stained glass windows and pieces colorful sacred art. There's a kind of mystery around it with creepy crypts containing ancient catacombs.
How much ?
It’s a Free ! With that in mind, don’t miss your chance to check it out even if you are not that religious! The construction started in the 1400’s century. So there's a lots of history lying here, especially about the beginning of “Coronation Church” - sovereigns of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1563 (According to Wikipedia).
