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.

  • The oldest church in Bratislava full of beautiful decorations, colourful windows with wonderful mosaics. The statues decorating the interior show the rich catholic history of this town and its importance in Hungarian kingdom in the past. I really enjoyed the small streets in the back of the cathedral. The cathedral itself is worth visiting and a must see point in Bratislava.
  • Was touched by the architect of the church. A good place for meditation before and after strolling around the city. I love the place...☺️☺️☺️
