Great architecture on the outside, beautiful on the inside...although with some scaffolding at one end. I'd had this church in my mind when thinking of visiting Ljubljana, as it always appears in any search of pictures of the city, and stands out with its pink facade, in the Old Town square. Doors are open until 8pm, so worth it to... More

The magnificent Franciscan Church of the Annunciation is located at the Presernov trg Square, the central square of Ljubljana. It was constructed in the 17th century and have been renovated and reconstructed from time to time.

We went inside and the inside is by far more impressive then the outside, the drunks who like sitting on the steps outside are annoying but harmless. The Church has plenty of history and a must for anyone to go look at! Enjoy!

We first stepped in at the end of a Good Friday service, which seemed to have its parishioners taking an active part in the service. We quietly stood at the back and took in what we could of the service. Flowers, branches of olive trees and posies were in profusion among the congregation. We returned a few days later to... More

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.

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!

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.
