Description

We'll leave on foot for a guided tour of Bratislava and St Martin's Cathedral. Our walking tour will take us past the main historical monuments in the old town. We'll then hop on our coach headed to St Martin's Cathedral. Its massive tower is capped by a replica of the Hungarian Crown resting on a gilded pillow. The coronations of 11 kings and queens plus 8 of their consorts occurred in this « coronation church » in the 16th century. Inside, you'll be amazed by the beautiful wood carvings and the many paintings on display, such as one of the Last Supper. It is also inside these very walls that the Missa Solemnis by Beethoven was performed for the first time. We'll return on board after our tour.

 

Length: approx. 4h

  • In case the cathedral is closed, we’ll visit the Primate's Palace instead.
