Few cities experienced as many royal coronations as Bratislava. When Bratislava (having three names: in German called Pressburg and in Hungarian Pozsony) was the capital of Hungarian Kingdom, a total of 19 kings and queens were crowned here. These coronations took place between 1563 and 1830. The most famous queen crowned in Bratislava was the Habsburg queen Maria Theresa.

Starting from the Castle, down to the Old Town following in the in the footsteps of crowned heads. We will not miss the Coronation Church – St. Martin’s Cathedral and the coronation path through the Old Town. The coronation tour ends by the river Danube, where the newly crowned monarch swore the Oath to the Land. 


“We booked a 3-hour tour which was plenty of time to see the old town, castle, and cathedral. Our excellent guide was Maria; she was knowledgeable and personable. She told us that she loves her job, and it showed. Our conversations as we walked allowed us to ask questions and hear personal stories that helped us appreciate the sights and understand the history of Slovakia. Very informative and enjoyable..”
