One of the loviest cathedrals we encountered in the former Yugoslavia. The interior paintings and the organ are spectacular. Located right next to the green market as well as a wonderful souvenir store called DOM.

The Cathedral has a beautifully painted interior and has recently been refurbished so the colours are really vibrant, there is an air of calmness to be had the organ looks huge and I am sure it would make a great sound

The cathedral is close to the town square/old town area. The Slovenia architecture is nice. The cathedral is beautiful inside and outside.

We all gave thanks for the excellent trip we were experiencing and the nice weather. At the same time, we couldn't help noticing the quality of the worshippers of all ages. The church was packed...

If you are in the Old Town area or going to the castle you will likely walk right by this cathedral so you might as well pop in, right? The interior is stunning, packing a lot into a quaint church! But hands down our favorite part of the church are the doors! Both sets of doors are worth stopping to... More
