Church of Mary Magdalene

All its early Baroque fittings preserved in their entirety – the high altar and the two side altars as well as the pulpit – date back to the second half of the 17th century and are considered a unique collection of sacred objects with respect to Bratislava. Its original character was partially modified at the end of the 19th century when the altar sculptures were restored (Karl Kohanner, Johann Kätzer) and the pictures on the high altar and the two side altars were replaced. The columnar, pedestalled altars are made of black polychrome wood and are decorated with white and gold palmette, acanthus and stylised plant motifs.
