Few buildings in Bratislava are as steeped in history as St. Martin's. Some nineteen Hungarian kings and queens were crowned in the cathedral during the years 1563-1830. And on a musical note, Beethoven premiered his moody Missa Solemnis right here. The stout Gothic edifice hasn't had the easiest of rides though. There was considerable alarm in recent years over the rumbling reverberations of nearby traffic. Concerted efforts had to be made to consolidate the structure. However, this hasn't stopped the cathedral from remaining a favourite for classical concerts, as well as the focal point for the city's spiritual life. Long may she continue to prosper.
