“Quick/Easy visit - might as well add it to your list of things to see in Bratislava”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

We recently visited Bratislava and stopped by the Blue Church (St. Elizabeth) while sightseeing around the city center. This is a Catholic church that is coloured bright blue, inspired by the Art Nouveau movement at the time of this it design in 1913. As such, the church sort looks like a big blue cake when you are approaching it. The surrounding buildings are mostly drab, allowing the deep blue color of the outside of the church to really stand out and make an impression.

Inside the Blue Church, there is not much to see compared to the large historical cathedrals like St. Martin's in the city center or others you might have seen in Europe. This is a small, single chambered nave with two rows of seats. There room is nicely colour cordinated in similar taste to the outside of the building but that is about it.

In the end, its worth finding the Blue Church as it quite uniquely painted and its something that is easy to remember from your trip to Bratislava. You can see everything here in 15-20 minutes and move on to other attractions within the city center.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

I first saw a replica of this church in Brussels at Mini Europe. I was so impressed with it there that I determined I had to see it in person one day. The Blue Church is stunning in person--the color is so unique--inside and out. We were fortunate enough to be able to see the inside, and it is just as lovely. I've seen many, many churches during our years in Europe, and this is one I'll always remember!

“Surprise!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

Actually, I didn't know there was such place in Bratislava. I was walking around the old town, got lost at some point, and ended up in front of a magnificent blue church, looking like it had popped up from some fairy tale. Have to admit I was awestruck. It was such a pretty shade of blue... and... well, you will have to go and see for yourself. :)
I found out later that this place was, in fact, a tourist attraction.
Anyway, it is awesome not to know about this place at all then stumble upon it. Would be a really pleasant surprise ;)
