Franciscan church of the annunciation of the Lord in Bratislava

Church

The Franciscan church consecrated to the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary is very old. It is the oldest preserved sacral building in Bratislava.

The original Gothic presbytery and the lateral walls of the nave were preserved and today are the oldest part of the church.

The main altar is from the mid-18th century and bears the painting of glass of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary from the end of the 19th century made according to the original painting from the 18th century. The side altars are also in the Baroque style, all of them are from the mid-18th century. The pulpit from 1756 is in the Rococo style and it is adorned with several notable relieves. One of traditional ceremonies of the Pressburg coronations took place in the Franciscan church. It was the promotion of selected aristocrats to the Knights of the Golden Spur.

La Putika

A wildly popular, original mini-chain of restaurant / café / bars with a laid-back atmosphere, a good selection of Belgian and some quirky beers, and friendly staff. And the prices are truly hard to beat. Always great for a glass of wine with a small group of friends before a big night out, or a fairly cheap tasty lunch. The Putikas attract tons of local beer lovers, so call ahead to secure a table. The interior with a hint of whimsical Frenchness is extremely cozy and pleasantly dimmed; but beware – cigarettes are permitted and the non-smoking rooms are usually packed.

Pod Kamenným Stromom

Pod Kamenným Stromom

Started by a former advertisement industry pro, this underground bar and eatery successfully proves you don‘t need to be trained in hospitality to cook truly brilliant food. Pod Kamenným Stromom has plenty to offer to hedonistic fans of the best of local organic ingredients and top-notch wines in its summer restaurant (the kitchen is closed November – March). The deceptively low-brow interior does not let on the intricacies of the kitchen, where the chef masterfully utilizes quirky ingredients in creating exciting, highly satisfying dishes: lesser known vegetables with high quality meats and fish often soaked in nice wine, artfully prepared soups, plus generous portions of rustic desserts; all finger-licking good. The most extraordinary amenity of this restaurant is its unexpectedly romantic outdoor terrace hidden from the street, making this place a great destination for couples on a first date. If you‘re trying to finally impress the so far unimpressed girl/boy, Kamenný strom is your good friend. And the best thing? It won‘t hurt your wallet!

Vlastná cukráreň v podzemí ich dodáva čerstvé a vo veľkom výbere. Toto je kaviareň s veľkým K.
