© Fotoquelle: visitbratislava.com und slovakia.travel.sk Church St. Elizabeth is one of Bratislava's most important landmarks.

The Church of St. Elizabeth in the centre of Bratislava is said to be one of the most beatiful ecclesiastical buildings in Slovakia. Both inside and out it is charactarised by its light blue colour, giving it the name it is more commonly known by: Blue Church. The structure includes an oval nave as well as a circular tower of 120 feet.

Besides its striking blue colour, the design is dominated by curved shapes, typical for Hungarian art nouveau architecture. Moreover, the combination with oriental elements makes the church truly unique. The interior as well as the façade are decorated with blue Maiolica mosaics, and even its roof stays true to the colour scheme: the tiles are glazed in  a slightly darker blue. With its fairytale looks, the Blue Church is one of Bratislava's most important landmarks. So if you're travelling to Slovakia's capital, this it is certainly a must-see!

Historical Information

The Church of St. Elizabeth was finished in 1913. It was constructed according to plans of the famous Hungarian architect Ödön Lechner, who also designed the nearby school. It is dedicated to Saint Elizabeth of Hungary.
