St Martins Minister - Bratislava

Church

The pride of every Christian city is its parish church. This is undoubtedly the case with St Martins Minster, Bratislavas biggest, oldest, and most spectacular church.

St Martins Minster was a coronation church in the years 1563-1830. The first ruler to be crowned here was Maximillian II. The coronation ceremony took place on September 8th 1563. It was followed by eighteen other coronations including that of Maria Theresa on June 25th 1741. The last king who received St Stephens royal crown below the lead statue of St Martin was Ferdinand V on September 28th 1830. An incomplete list of eleven kings and eight royal spouses crowned in Pressburgs Minster is on the board placed on the inside northern wall. Every year coronation of one of the Kings is simulated in time of popular coronation feasts. Reconstruction in the Baroque taste first concentrated on the interior and later on the construction of the fourth chapel. In the years 1732-1734 the ground plan of the church was widened by the chapel of St John the Almsgiver one of the most valuable artistic monuments of Bratislava. The new bulky Baroque altar with Donners monumental group of statues of St Martin replaced the removed Gothic one. The Baroque tower was destroyed by fire caused by lightning in 1833.
