The Blue Church

One of the must-visit churches in Europe, this Art Nouveau masterpiece takes you to another land. The eye soothing baby blue with white accents and dark blue roof tiles of the church looks whimsical. The fairy-tale façade and an interior which feels more like a beautiful ballroom.

Built in the early twentieth century, the church reflects an Art Nouveau style of architecture, playfully combined with oriental, Romanesque and classical features. The Blue Church is one of the unusual churches of all time. It is also popularly known as the Church of St Elizabeth, you can describe it more as a wedding cake than a place of worship. It’s dedicated to Saint Elizabeth of Hungary who was a medieval princess, a native of Bratislava, who risked her position by giving charity to the poor.
