I would agree that in a large city like Bratislava or Kosice, there needs to
be a name. So my apologies for making a generalization without exception.
There are over 2500 vilages and towns in Slovakia and for the most part,
there is only one church per faith village.

Bill and group,
Greetings. I always learn a great deal reading this group's posts. I am a
little confused over Bill's last remark, however, that Slovaks don't refer
to their churches by the holy name. During the two years I lived in
Bratislava, I had numerous choices for where to attend Catholic mass. I
asked one of my Slovak colleagues and she suggested Kostol Sveteho Ladislava
because it was close to where I lived and they had an English-language mass
if I wanted to attend that.
I found that people also referred to the Bratislava cathedral as St Martin's
cathedral (*Katedrála sv. Martina*, *Dóm sv. Martina). *
