Clarissine Church - Review
Built around the 12th century, the Church and Monastery of the Poor Clares is an architectural treat for tourists and locals alike. Throughout centuries it served for various purposes and many architectural additions were added to it.
The tower, added in 15th century is one of its highlights. Even though you may not get access to its interiors during concerts, the church is a must-see for its external architecture.

Clarissine Church, Bratislava Reviews
The Clarissine Church is a gothic church, part of a complex of medieval buildings forming the former Convent of Poor Clares in the Old Town of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. The former Catholic church is owned by the city of Bratislava and it is used for cultural events. The church is a notable example of Gothic architecture in Slovakia. The nuns of the Poor Clares order came to Bratislava in 1297 and built a church and a convent with the support of the king. In 1782 the Order of Poor Clares was dissolved, and the church became the seat of a legal academy and school. It is currently used as a concert and exhibition hall. A pentagonal tower was added in the 15th Century. The Order of Poor Clares was dissolved in the Kingdom of Hungary in 1782 by the decree of Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor. There are also Clarissine churches in Bamberg, Brixen, and Nuremberg.
