There are many beautiful churches in Europe but Blue Church Bratislava is a real site for sore eyes, and is extra special. Here’s all you need to know.
How To Get To The Blue Church Bratislava
The Blue Church is located in the eastern part of the Old Town in Bratislava.
As the Old Town is quite small, the Blue Church is easily accessible by foot.
However, for exploring the rest of the city, the best option is to buy a Bratislava Card, which allows unlimited use of all public transport for 24, 48 or 72 hours in the Bratislava Region.
The Bratislava Card also gives free access to 14 museums and galleries in Bratislava, plus more than 100 discounts of up to 50% on attractions, restaurants, shops, and leisure activities, the UFO being one of them!
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
