The interior is a feast for the eyes without exaggerated opulence. The cathedral staff are very welcoming and caring. The acoustics are warm without being overly reverberant. The cathedral is just steps off the main pedestrian path (but inside the pedestrian zone) and richly rewards a visit.

The two main outside doors are very unusual and worth a look on their own. Inside the Church is VERY ornate, quiet and peaceful. One loud American tourist disturbed the ambiance at one point!

If you enjoy beautiful churches don't miss this one, it is gorgeous. The nearby Franciscan church pales in comparison.

Small church, unremarkable except for the doors which have a very interesting story to tell. located next to a very busy market.

St. Nicolas's front faces a side alley, which is strange for a cathedral. But the front bronze door is well worth the effort to find it and look at it carefully. It's not old, Pope John Paul is on it, but a good summary of the history of Slovenia.

Unfortunately there was a service in progress when we visited, so we could not get a good look at all the decorations and architecture - a pity because it is probably one of the better tourist attractions in this city.

Interior is exquisite and the doors are amazing. Stop in and say a prayer or two while you walk around and check out the interior.

Loved the interior of St. Nicholas Cathedral and the history behind it. There wasn't anything I disliked.

The outside door is a mystery, full of figures and very well done. Inside is amazing, it is golden and very beautiful. We could not see everything because the Easter service was going on, it really worth a visit.
