The church is one of the most important cultural and historical landmarks in Svätý Jur. The Gothic Roman Catholic parish Church of St. George was originally constructed as an early-Gothic church from the 13th century, which was later added on to and enlarged. After Turkish raids in 1663 which resulted in the burning of the church tower, a separate wooden bell tower was erected. The interior of the church is dominated by an early-Renaissance stone altar, unique to Slovakia, in the middle of which stands a statue of St. George.
