Confirmed Venue: the Franciscan Church in Bratislava



On Sunday, March 31st, the La Canada Choral Artists will perform in the Franciscan Church in Slovakia's capital city of Bratislava. The oldest religious (sacral) building in the Old Town of Bratislava, the Franciscan Church, or Františkánsky kostol in Slovak, was constructed between the years 1280 and 1297 in a Gothic style. The church was consecrated on March 24th, 1297 in the presence of King Andrew III of Hungary. 
In 1525, Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor, was elected here to become the King of Hungary. 




The side altars, both dating back to 1720-1730, are dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi and Saint Anthony of Padua. In the 17th century, the Franciscan Church was turned into a Renaissance church and into a Baroque church in the 18th century.Even though only small parts of the original form of the church are preserved due to several fires and earthquakes, the adjacent Chapel of Saint John the Evangelist with a crypt, built in the second half of the 14th century, is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the city.
