MOST RECENT

While walking around the “old” Bratislava castle up the hill, you can enjoy some great views onto the historic city center, the St. Martin’s Cathedral, the Danube and the adjacent countries...quite stunning. The castle itself is not really outstanding since the renovations were not done quite well, all the ancient flair went missing. But it is one of the landmarks of Bratislava so you should definitely stroll around.

📍Bratislava Castle 🇸🇰🔝〰️ #slovakia #bratislavacastle #bratislava #stmartinscathedral #view #tourist 📸☀️☀️

Friday 🤗 Scrolling through Bratislava photos, and I realize there were none of St. Martin’s Cathedral, coronation church of the sovereigns of the Kingdom of Hungary 👑
.
St. Martin’s Cathedral is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Bratislava. Before the construction of the cathedral, the site had been the crossroads and contained the former centre of the town, a market and probably also a chapel. Worship services were held at Bratislava Castle. As the the castle’s safety was threatened, King Imre of Hungary requested the Pope Innocent II for permission to relocate the provost's office into forecastle, and The Pope assented in 1204. The church was relocated in 1221, and was originally built in Romanesque style and sanctified to the Holy Savior.
.
Construction of a new Gothic cathedral began in 1311 on the site of the earlier church and an adjacent cemetery. Construction continued until 1452 due to the difficulty of construction and lack of funding. For a period in the early fifteenth century, construction halted due to the Hussite Wars. In 1452, the church was finally completed and consecrated.
.
The cathedral became the coronation church of the sovereigns of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1563, succeeding the Virgin Mary Church in Székesfehérvár, after the Ottoman Empire conquered that city. On 8 September 1563, the Crown of St. Stephen was placed on the head of Maximilian II, son of Emperor Ferdinand I of Habsburg. In total, the coronations of 11 kings and queens plus 8 of their consorts occurred here between 1563 and 1830, including that of Maria Theresa of Austria.

These fellas look like some creatures taken from the Game of Thrones. You will not find them however in the Westeros, but in St. Martin's Cathedral in Bratislava. Look for the details 😉
