The beginnings of Christianity from the Middle Ages to Bratislava of today

120 minutes - 45€

Travel with us 1000 years back to the Middle Ages, when Bratislava was called Prešpork, when Maria Theresa ruled, or when Spanish conquistadors spread Christianity throughout Europe. We will show you the most beautiful churches, chapels and monasteries you can find in our city, which breathe a thousand year old history and are covered with a veil of secrecy, wars, riches, and intrigues, which ruled the world at the time. We will take a loon and explain how they originate, why was it here, and who was behind these majestic buildings and plans.
