What a beautiful place right from the very beginning and the stunning door that has lots of iron work on it and also lots of meaning as we did a tour of the city and we stopped here and got told the meanings! Step inside and it's simply stunning! Go visit and you won't be disappointed:)

I'm not a church goer but I do appreciate a good church architecture. The Cathedral is very big and very ornate, but the best thing for me are the creepy doors at the side of the church.

The church itself is really pretty and has a nice scale to it where it doesn't feel overwhelmingly large. However the feature that struck me most were the two large bronze doors, one depicting Christianity over the years in Slovenia. The other of the bishops in Ljubljana. A work of art.

When we went in there, it was at the end of a service and heard part of the music. The acoustic was good. We admired briefly the ceiling and the architecture inside.

An interesting Baroque Cathedral, but for us the best feature was the outside of the two sets of doors. One portrays the history of Chrisianity in Slovenia, whilst the other portrays recent bishops of the diocese. Check on opening times - they seem a bit erratic.

This is such a pretty cathedral and located so close to the town centre, there's no reason to miss it. It is really quite opulent, yet quiet & intimate. A lovely little church. Don't miss it.

These giant catherdrals are always in danger of destruction in this day and age. Don't miss going here! They were actually ordaining new priest the day I popped in! Awesome choir in loft up above. Family & friends reserved at the front. Constant stream of tourist in the famous carved doors. EVERYONE was extremely respectful. I was so proud of... More

In old town where you won't miss it, small but effortless so worth a visit. You can also visit other major attractions from there such as the Triple Bridge and Preseren Square.

The cathedral is a place of peace and sanctuary and is a cool place to visit when the sun is hot outside.

From the amazing cathedral door to the opulent interior you couldn't but be impressed. A must see on any trip to Ljubljana and a place to sit awhile in quiet contemplation. Remember to rub the artists nose on the main door ( bottom right) for good luck ;)
