Palm Sunday and the Easter story was played out in front of us!

Even though we didn't speak the language, we knew the story. The church was full of children and young people and there were palm posies and oleander twigs everywhere!

Lovely steps for basking in the sun. It was a shame it wasn't open, would like to see what it looks like on the inside.

The doors of the church reminded me of the Baptistry in Florence. Inside the church is a splendid Baroque vision.

You can't deny the placement of this Church in the middle of the town, but of the half dozen churches I've seen in Ljubljana this one is the least.

The church is colorful from outside, pinkish building on the main square. The inside of the church is also nice.

Pinkish Building on Preseren square. Beautifully lit at night. Free entrance if you can negotiate the people sitting on the steps. Steps are great to sit and people watch.

This is a beautiful place to go to church, especially around St. Nikolas feast day and Christmas time. The music is superb and the congregation is usually full to the brim.

The most pronounced building on the Preseren Square, this colourful church is worth a look both from the outside and from the inside, especially due to its beautiful organ.

Not a large Church but the building is rather imposing in the middle of the square. Worth taking a look inside, the organ at the back of the Church at the top is lovely.

Seen only outside of this church, as in Prešeren Square. Is nice because of it's colour, and is lighted at evenings and seems more beautiful. Is the parish church of Ljubljana - Annunciation Parish. Its red colour is symbolic of the Franciscan monastic order. Since 2008, the church has been protected as a cultural monument of national significance of Slovenia.
