This Church is called also "Blue Church" and I like it most :)) If you want to see Slovak wedding, go there in Saturday there are tons of weddings of course. By my opinion it is the most popular church for this occasion in Bratislava and you must wait quite a long time for wedding mass of yours :)...
It was built between 1910-1913 using new materials such as artificial stone and reinforced concrete. The popularity of this fairy tale church is exemplified by its unofficial name "The LIttle Blue Church" thanks to its blue walls, majolica and the glazed roof shingles. Great example of Art Nouveau style in religious architecture. If you will turn and see the big building of gymnsaium on Grosslingova street you will see also the work of Edmund Lechner i nthe same style as the church. The church itself is dedicated to St Elizabeth descendant of Arpad dynasty -patron saint of the poor.

Address: Bezrucova Street
Directions: near the University of Comenius go through nearby park and you will see the peak of the Church tower.
