Small by some standards but an absolute Gem inside. Beautifully preserved and decorated with a fabulous pipe organ, and Grand Entry Doors. Definitely one to go to and enjoy.

Located at the Mesni Trg, it embrace combination between Gothic and Baroque elements, with amazing organ. It worth to be seen, please devote enough time and obtain info in advance on it in order not to miss the important parts. Inside are available brochures that i found very helpful.

This church hit's it on several levels from the modern sculpted doorways to the blingy gilded baroque interiors to the massive ceiling mural to the marble pillars and floors. Grab a sit, take a some deep breaths and take your time. It's a bit overwhelming.

This church must be seen at least because of the doors, which are made in a very special style. Inside this church is also a very nice and is worth of being part of every touristic walk. It is situated in the heart of Ljubljana and adds the old town its charm.

Ljubljana Cathedral is well worth a visit especially since #1, it's free and #2, you can take pictures! There are several churches that do not allow the latter so took full advantage here.

I've been to the church a few times and I am always fascinated by its interior! If you plan to visit any church in Ljubljan be sure to visit this one! It is easy to find - old town righ next to the open market.
