Central cathedral in Old Town

Standard cathedral with interesting items inside. Don't miss looking at the doors - showing history and also the visit from the pope.

This Cathedral is excellent for photography and has a rich history. The colors and way light bathes the interior makes shooting clean and easy. Loved it!

This is a great cathedral to visit. It is not the largest cathedral but a peaceful space in Lljublana. Amazing ceilings and a space to reflect.

Totally lucked out as when I went in the choir was rehearsing with the organ and the music was just breathtaking. I am not deeply religious but was absolutely awed by the richness of the sound and the sheer beauty. The cathedral itself has a fantastic ceiling so make sure you look up and take it in.

We wandered into this one and discovered a very ornate Cathedral! Lots of gilding and carvings. Side door was a very curious metal casting of multiple bishops of the church, apparently. Definitely worth a quick stop. Longer if you have a guide to explain.

One of the main highlights of Ljubljana. The frescoes were beautifully painted and the altar ornate.

Very ornate baroque church. It does not take long to visit and should not be missed. Located in the heart of the old town.

We would never miss out a visit to a Cathedral wherever we go. We have seen many over the years. This one was very ornate and we actually liked the brass doors on street side. Interior very impressive so make sure you visit and not be put off by the outside.

Very impressive Cathedral, I would rate one of the best in this catagory. The only draw back was the timmings.
