Blue Church of St. Elizabeth, Bratislava

4.4
Coated with rows of blue tiles and covered with a blue-glazed roof, Blue Church of St. Elizabeth looks like a giant wedding cake, according to many. The candy-colored church was built around 1908 in the Hungarian secessionist style and first served as the chapel of the neighboring high school. Everything about the church bears resemblance to a cake--its shape, the facade's light blue color, and the white, frosting-like ornaments. A cylindrical church tower rises 37 m (120 ft) from the ground. Notice the circular mosaic of St. Elizabeth of Hungary above the main portal and the altar decorated with the image of her giving alms to the poor.

  • Located a little farther from the main part of the historical centre, the Blue Church - designed by Edmund Lechner - is a gem of Hungarian Art Nouveau. It's absolutely amazing. Everything is blue...  more »
  • A quite hidden spot close to the old town. I consider it kitsch but it gets a lot of visitors as it is famous for the color of the church  more »

  • Probably one of the best churches i have ever seen. Not far out of the old town but highly recommend to visit. Its only open at certain times during the day so if you want to go in make sure to check the times. Not many tourists around also when we visited so was actually quite relaxing.
  • Cute little church in Bratislava. It’s located in the main part of town where most of the stuff is so it’s easy to get to and if you do a day trip to Bratislava from Vienna it’s €16 roundtrip and includes public transport in the city of Bratislava (don’t recommend more than a few hours, there’s not much to do). But interesting sight to see and fun way to break up your trip. Recommend it
