Really worth a quick visit away from the mayhem of the bridge. If you ask, you can get an extended ticket to walk up to the bell tower. I also made a very special request to ring the bell, only once, at 6pm (any more...More

The outside fresco was beautiful. The comments were written and I found out that this church was built in 10th century. I went inside and I was shocked. It is beautifully preserved. The inside frescos were telling the story. The domed construction was nicely done....More

Hours for admission may be sketchy (presume the docent needs to grab a bite or whatever, so read her note and come back). It was so worth the effort! Our docent told us the church dates back to the 13th century and the outer hall...More

It's a must, while coming to Bohinj. Very little church is on a perfect setting. It's for sure the most photogenic church in SLovenia.
